I love making scones. They’re super quick, extraordinarily easy and everyone I know has a soft spot for them. Everyone.


  • 600g self raising flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup cream
  • good pinch of salt
  • a good heaped tbsp caster sugar
  1. Preheat oven to a hot oven
  2. Combine the ingredients using a palette knife until barely combined
  3. Turn out onto a lightly floured bench and working quickly with a light hand, combine into a dough
  4. Roll out to about 2cm thick
  5. Cut out rounds (I use a vegemite glass) and place close to each other on a baking tray
  6. Brush the tops lightly with some milk
  7. Bake in a hot oven for 12-15 minutes
  8. Serve w/ jam and lightly whipped cream

Mixing it up…
A dear friend of mine at work, Angela, mentioned her lemonade scones to me one day and then I saw a recipe for them over at The cook and the chef website (I LOVE that show), so last weekend I tried them.

Lemonade scones

  • 1 cup cream
  • 1 cup lemonade
  • 3 cups self raising flour
  1. Mix together and bake as above.

I thought they were weird. They looked like scones, they rose like scones but they had a weird lemonade flavour. We started joking around:
– ginger and date scones – using ginger beer
– coke scones
– fanta scones
I’m glad I tried them but I doubt I’d ever make that version again.
