Molly’s Scones

A red tea towel covering freshly baked scones
Here’s some I prepared earlier…

 

2 cups SR flour

¼ cup caster sugar

Pinch of salt

½ cup thick cream

½ cup lemonade

2 tablespoons milk

 

  1. Preheat oven to 220C. Lightly grease a baking tray or line with greaseproof paper.
  2. Place flour, sugar and pinch of salt in a large bowl. Add the cream and lemonade and mix together with a butter knife until a soft dough forms.
  3. Turn out onto a lightly floured workbench or board, knead lightly until combined.
  4. Press dough with your hands until around 2-2.5cm thick. Cut with a scone-cutter or round glass. Re-roll the scraps to make more scones.
  5. Place on a baking tray and brush the tops lightly with milk.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes until lightly browned. Serve warm with jam and whipped cream.

 

Molly’s Tips

  • Try out different flavoured soft drinks (sodas) for different tastes.
  • You can substitute ordinary sugar for the caster sugar
  • Don’t over-knead the dough – your scones will turn out a little too dense (but still yummy!)
