Aussie Scones

Make your next afternoon tea special with a batch of classic scones served with fresh cream and jam. For best results, do not overwork the dough, mixing only until just combined.


  • 2 cups self raising flour
  • 30g butter or margarine
  • 1 to 1 ½ cups milk
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • ½ to 1 tablespoon of sugar or icing mixture (lighter)


  1. Sieve flour and salt into a bowl
  2. Melt butter and add to milk and pour onto dry mix
  3. Create a soft dough without over working – less is more when making scones
  4. Gently roll out dough onto a lightly floured board to a 2cm height, and cookie cut into round scone shapes
  5. Place on greased baking tray, glaze tops with a little milk, and cook in a hot oven (180 degrees) for 12 to 15 minutes
  6. Remove from oven and cover with a tea towel to keep fresh until ready to serve.
