Fantastic quick, featherlight scones

Photo: Andrew Gale

Now, I've made many, many scones, but none as delicate and as featherlight as these.

When I choose a scone recpe, it needs to have half a dozen ingredients or less. These are wonderul - and are just enough for a small group. Makes about 8 scones, depending on how big you like them!


1 and a 1/2 cups SR flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup thickened cream
1/2 cup lemonade

  1. Sift flour into a bowl
  2. Add other ingredients
  3. Mix
  4. turn lightly onto a floured bench
  5. roll out with your fingers until dough is about 2 cm high on a floured bench
  6. Cut out rounds with a cookie cutter, and place on a greased tray.
  7. Cook in a pre-heaated 220 degree celsius oven for 10-12 minutes
  8. Serve with jam, and whipped cream
