31020 Scones – Plate of six – Made using the recipe of well known Show
Society exhibitor, Life Member of Nowra Show Society and author of
“My Favourite Recipes”, Mrs Voni Muller.
Voni made these scones very Sunday morning for decades for her family to
enjoy for breakfast. Voni first entered cooking at local Shows at the age of
fourteen and has continued to not only enter competitions, but has gone on to
teach and judge preserves, cakes and scones at local agricultural Shows.
Recipe to be followed:
Plain Scones
15 minutes preparation 12 minutes cooking
3 cups SR Flour
1 tsp salt
1 heaped tsp baking powder
1 cup cream
¾ cup milk
½ cup water
Pre-heat over to 2000 C. Line a large baking tray with baking paper.
Sift flour, salt and baking powder into bowl.
Add cream, milk and water and mix to a soft dough, preferably with a large
butter knife (if too moist add a bit more flour). Put on to floured surface, knead
well and roll out to about ½ inch thickness. Cut into small circles using a
cookie cutter (be sure to dust rim with flour so scone mix does not stick to
cutter). Place scones next to each other (so they are just touching) on a tray
lined with baking paper. Brush top of each scone lightly with milk (optional).
Bake in hot oven (2000C) for about 12 minutes.
Scones will be slightly golden on top when cooked.
Place on cooling rack to cool and cover with a tea towel.
Scones are best eaten warm from the oven however they also freeze well in
an airtight container or wrapped in plastic.
NB: If scones are being made for Show competition they are not to be
touching on the tray when you cook them.
