Set oven to 230°c and preheat a baking tray.
In a large bowl, sift flour and salt together, then rub in the butter.
Once combined, add sugar and orange rind
Squeeze the juice from an orange, then measure 1/3 ofa cup and add it to the milk. Stir this liquid into the dry ingredients, making a soft dough.
Turn onto a floured surface, and knead lightly – be careful not to overwork the dough.Roll the dough out into your desired thickness and cut into 3 to 4cm rounds.
Dip the halved sugar cubes into the remaining orange juice, then press into the top of each scone.
Sprinkle preheated tray lightly with a little flour, and place scones onto it close together. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes. Serve warm with dollops of cream and your favourite jam!
