Amira's Scones



After we watched Masterchef tonight, Anthony wanted to make scones, don't know what inspired him as the "BAKE OFF" on Masterchef is tomorrow night. I think he was just hungry. I was tired after a busy day, but how can you knock back your child's request especially with his enthusiasm and mouth-watering plea...I wanted to eat some myself also. So out came the bowl, flour, cream and milk and we produced the most fluffy scones you can imagine. The trick is not to over mix the mixture and ensure the mixture is still moist in the centre. Give it a go and if Matthew gave me a 9 out of 10 that says it all.

3 cups Self Raising Flour
150 mls thickened cream
1 ¼ cups full cream milk

Preheat oven to 210 degrees. Place flour in bowl, pour in cream then pour in milk with a knife make “cut through” strokes through the mixture. Tip out onto floured board and knead very, very lightly until it comes together, patting as you go with floured hands. Cut out desired size and place on greased and floured baking tray. Place tray on top shelf of oven and bake at 210 degrees for 12 – 15 minutes.

Enjoy with jam with cream.
