Traditional Scones

This recipe is quick, easy & always delicious. Perfect if a few unexpected guests turn up for afternoon tea.

Prep time: 5-10 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
Yield: 12 scones

Ingredients

  • 2 cups self raising flour, extra for dusting
  • 1 cup coconut cream
  • 6 tablespoons water

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees celsius (fan forced).
  2. Prepare a baking tray with paper.
  3. Combine flour & cream in a bowl. Mix lightly with a knife. Try not to compress the air too much as this will make your scones heavy.
  4. Add water gradually as needed. You want your scone mixture to be slightly sticky when touched but not too wet.
  5. Once the desired consistency is reached, tip mixture out onto a floured surface, flatten it with your fingers until it’s approximately 3cm thick.
  6. Using a 4cm round cutter, cut out scones. Press leftover dough together & repeat to make 12 scones. Place them onto the prepared baking tray, just touching.
  7. Cook for 10 – 15 minutes until golden & cooked through.
  8. Enjoy hot with fresh jam & a cuppa.
