I used to be the worlds worst scone maker. I am sure if you threw them at the wall you would probably have broken the wall before the scone. But last year that all changed when my mum finally shared her recipe with me and these scones are a no fail recipe. So soft fresh.
So today I am going to share this yummy recipe with you.
3 cups self raising flour
pinch of salt
1/2 cup cream
1 1/2 cups milk
Preheat oven to 240 degrees Celsius and line and grease a baking tray.
Sift flour and salt into a bowl and make a well in the centre. Add the cream and milk and using a knife stir to form a soft dough (it will be quite wet and sticky still). Then turn out onto a floured board.
Knead very lightly with floured hands and smooth out to about 5 cm thick (or slightly thicker is okay). Cut scones out with a scone cutter or I just use a drinking glass and place on baking tray.
Cook in very hot oven (240 degrees Celsius) for 10 to 12 mins. They will only go slightly brown on top. Then take out and let them cool wrapped in a clean tea towel.
Serve with jam and cream or topping of your choice.
Hope you enjoy this scone recipe as much as we do and you can do variations too by adding sultanas or dates .
