When I watch my boys and their friends whip up some scones and smother them in strawberry jam and freshly whipped cream – it reminds me that the simple things in life are truly unbeatable. It’s as easy as ABC…………..
  • 350g Self Raising Flour
  • 1 Tbs caster sugar
  • 40g butter, chopped into cubes
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • jam and cream
  1. Heat your oven to 220C.
  2. Tip the flour and sugar into a bowl and mix together.
  3. Add in the butter and use your fingers to rub it into the flour.
  4. Pour in the buttermilk and using a butter knife, mix it together to form a dough.
  5. Sprinkle some flour on a board or directly on to the bench top.
  6. Use your hands to gently form the dough into a flat circle shape and using a round cookie cutter, cut out your scones.
  7. Use any left over bits to form some extra scones.
  8. Place the scones onto a non-stick tray and let them touch each other.
  9. Brush the tops of the scones with some milk.
  10. Place the tray in the oven and cook for 15 minutes.
Tip 1: Don’t play with the dough – scone dough doean’t like to be over handled[br]Tip 2: You can tap on the scones to check if they are cooked – they should sound hollow.[br]Tip 3: Use a stick blender to help whip the cream – make sure you stop when the cream is just starting to thicken – this is the perfect whipped cream!!!!
