This is a recipe I got from a friend in Perth. It is originally from her grandmother, tastes yummy and is easy to make.


  1. Preheat oven until very hot!
  2. Melt butter, beat egg in a bowl and add milk.
  3. Mix baking powder, sugar flour and salt in a bowl.
  4. Pour 1 into 2, mix - not too much.
  5. Tip onto bench/board that is floured.
  6. Mix together until smooth.
  7. Pat down to ca. 2cm thick.
  8. Cut out.
  9. Push together slightly.
  10. Bake in moderate / hot (225°C) oven for 12-15 minutes.
  11. Serve with creme and jam (and tea!).

These scones were great! The dough was nice and smooth and the resulting scones were very light and fluffy inside. I served mine hot with butter and honey and enjoyed this breakfast treat - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for Fall PAC 2008

WOW what a wonderful scone recipe, Little Miss (DD) and I made these together and we both had so much fun. I used an egg replacer and lactose free milk but otherwise kept to the recipe. I had more then one cup of flour because the mixture was too watery but once I added the extra flour the dough was so soft and perfect. The only criticism I have was the instructions were a little hard to understand but it didn't take away from the scones. Thank you Jelly Belly Lees and please thank your grandmother for us as well.
