stopping by for a scone


Can't chat, am actually working tonight (for Amazon book money!) so better get back to the numbers and thought I'd leave you with a snack. 

Morning tea (or afternoon). 

Fresh scones with butter and jam. Does it get any better?

I think this recipe may be my Nan's. Or Grandma's. Unsure of origin. Have made these so many times this may be the first time I've written it down. 

Champion Scones!


3 cups self raising flour (I use wholemeal or unbleached)

About a tbsp sugar

Approx 80g butter

1 cup milk


Mix the flour and the sugar then rub in the butter. Stir through the milk. Knead, and cut into scone-like shapes (scone cutters are good for this.)

Cook on about 210 for about 15-20 mins or until golden on top. 

That's it. 

I actually like it better than this recipe because I don't have to remember to buy lemonade. 

Unsure if scones work with gluten-free flour, for the gluten-free readers? Anybody?

Better get to it! (Motivated by this book on my Amazon list which isn't in any of the libraries around me!)

See you tomorrow.
