Annas Scones

PostAuthor: Mary in Oz » Wed Jul 22, 2009 6:25 am

Very easy sheTurn oven onto 200c or 180C fan forced.

3 cups SR flour with a pinch of salt
1 cup lemonade (not flat and not lemon solo etc - has to be lemonade)
1 cup cream (I think you're meant to use ordinary cream but I used thickened as I wanted thickened cream to beat up for serving them with jam and cream and they turned out fine.)

Sift the flour and salt into a bowl.

Add cream and lemonade. Mix very lightly with a bread and butter knife. You may need to add a bit more flour if the mixture is too sticky but the dough is meant to be fairly moist.

Turn onto a floured board and knead very lightly to make a rectangle about 3cm thick. The less you handle the dough the better the scone.

You can cut with a scone cutter but I just cut into 12 scones with a floured knife. It looks very rustic! Brush the tops with beaten egg or milk, or dust with flour. The first time I made them, I forgot to do this but they still turned out fine.

Bake ths scones close together on the tray - they help each other rise when cooked together. I bake on a silicone tray liner.

Bake for about 15 minutes - the tops should be light golden.

Serve with lashings of whipped cream and jam and enjoy.
