These scones are my husband's absolute favourite. He devours them whenever I make them. They do have to be eaten on the day, and preferably once they hit the 'just cool' stage.
I made this batch for my children to enjoy as an afternoon snack.
- 4 cups Self Raising flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 250 mls cream (you should use pouring cream, but I used the remainder of whatever I had purchased from Aldi)
- Up to 400 mls milk (add carefully)
Mix all these ingredients lightly. I usually use a big bowl and a butter knife for really light results, but this time I used the Thermomix on a gentle mix until all ingredients were combined.
Knead lightly on a floured surface, roll until 2-3 cms thick. Cut with scone cutters and place on tray.
Brush with a little milk and into a hot oven they go for approx 12 mins or until golden and risen.
Serve with butter hot, or with jam and cream when cooled.
I adore these with the Morello Cherry jam from Aldi. It has just the right tartness for my liking with the sweetened cream I make.
