Simple Scones

Kaye shares her secret recipe for perfect scones – they’re simple to make, simple to eat and simple to clean up afterwards.

3 cups self-raising flour
1 cup cream
1 cup lemonade
1/2 cup milk
1 egg

Pre-heat oven to 200°C (180°C fan-forced). Put the flour, cream and lemonade together in a bowl and mix. When the mixture is ready the bowl will look clean and you will have a ball of very soft dough. Gently flatten on a board and cut into circles using the top of a standard water glass. Beat egg and mix with milk. Put dough circles onto a floured baking tray and paint tops with milk and egg wash. Cook in oven for 15 minutes. Serve with cream and home made fruit jam, with a cup of tea on the side.
