Scones

June 14, 2011

Bake these scones for afternoon tea as a delightful treat…serve with raspberry jam, whipped cream and a steaming cup of tea!

Makes 12-15 scones (depending on thickness of dough when cut)

Ingredients

150ml-175ml milk
150ml cream
1 egg
3 cups self-raising flour
2 tbs caster sugar

Cream & jam, to serve

Preheat oven 200°C fan forced. Line large flat oven tray with baking paper.

Whisk 150ml milk, cream and egg together until well combined. Combine flour and sugar in a large bowl. Add milk mixture and stir gently to a soft dough, adding remaining milk if necessary. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently until dough comes together.

Press dough out to 2cm-thick. Cut scones from dough and place onto tray lined with baking paper, flat-side up. Press dough together gently and repeat using the remaining dough. Brush the tops with milk.

Bake 12-15 minutes until golden and well risen. Serve hot with jam and cream.
