This is another recipe post from Be A Fun Mum contributor, the Wonderful Amanda from Food Before 5. I made the scones myself and they were a huge success with the kids. Here they are!
2 INGREDIENT SCONES
I am very serious when I say that “this recipe really works!”
I shared it on my ‘Food before 5’ page a little while back & ended up having women from all over the world baking them & sending me photos. It is a recipe that has been passed down generations in my husband’s family and now I am sharing it with you. Get started now & these soft & fluffy scones will be ready within 25 mins!
3 cups self-raising flour, sifted
2 cups + 2 Tbspn thickened cream (550ml)
Jam and cream for serving
- Preheat oven to 200°C. Line an oven tray with baking paper.
- In a large bowl, sift flour. Pour in cream. With a bread & butter knife, quickly mix to a soft sticky dough.
- On a floured surface, turn out the mixture & knead gently. Press out dough to approx. 1 ½ cm thick.
- Cut scones & place on tray with scones close together.
- Bake in preheated oven for 15 mins. Remove from oven & cool on wire rack.
- Serve with jam & cream.
If you don’t havea scone cutter, press out dough into a rectangle 1 ½ cm thick & cut out 18 squares with a knife.
- Best eaten the same day as baking.
- Freeze immediately after cooling on rack. Thaw prior to eating.
