My friend Alice is truly amazing – she is one of those people who inspires me. She is a multi-talented, creative lady who can turn her hand to almost anything – she quilts beautifully, she sews, she can fix and mend almost anything (reticulation and vacuum cleaners to name just a few!) and she is a great cook.
Alice’s home always reminds me of a country home; welcoming, open and relaxed. Whenever I ‘pop in’ to visit her the table will be set with fresh flowers, pretty napkins and some yummy freshly baked delight. I feel blessed to have a friend like Alice in my life.
Today I am going to share Alice’s Scone recipe which is one of my favourite baked delights that I enjoy at her place.
These scones are easy to make, a never fail recipe which is guaranteed to taste delicious.
4 tablespoons of oil (vegetable, or I use Rice Bran oil)
2 cups of milk (or I use 1 1/2 cups milk and 1/2 cup thickened cream or sour cream)
4 cups of Self Raising flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
- Beat the egg, oil and milk until combined.
- Sift the SR flour, sugar and salt into a bowl.
- Add the egg mixture to the flour.
- Knead until just combined and then turn on to a floured surface.
- Pat into a flat shape of the thickness you would like your scones to be (3/4 inch).
- Cut with a floured scone cutter and then place on a greased tray. (I brush the tops of the scones with a bit of milk)
- Preheat oven to 220C degrees.
- Cook in oven for 12 – 15 mins.
- Serve warm & fresh with whipped cream and jam – yum, yum.
Happy cooking 🙂
