  • 3 cup self rising flour
  • ½ cup salted butter frozen and grated
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 4 tablespoon salted butter melted
  • 1 tablespoon honey


  • Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Using the large holes on a box grater, grate the frozen butter.
  • In a medium size bowl use a fork to toss together the flour and grated butter. Mix until there are no clumps and the butter is evenly distributed.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk and ¼ cup honey. Make a well and pour the milk and honey into the center of the flour.
  • Using the same fork gradually mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until fully moistened.
  • Turn out onto a floured surface and gently turn the dough a few times until it comes together and isn't sticky. Do not over flour. Pat or roll into an 8 x 8-inch square that is approximately 1-inch thick
  • Use a sharp knife to cut into 9 large or 12 medium equal portions.
  • Separate the dough and place 2-inches apart on the pans. Brush the tops and sides with melted butter
  • Bake for 12 minutes then increase to the broiler setting. Bake for an additional 3-5 minutes or until the tops are golden.
  • Mix 1 tablespoon of honey into the remaining melted butter. Brush the tops just before serving.
  • Serve immediately.


  • Self rising flour already has leavening agents added. If you'd like to make your own self rising flour for this recipe to the amount of flour called for add 1 tablespoon of baking powder and ½ teaspoon of salt. Sift together and proceed with the recipe.
