READY IN: 12mins
Recipe by Leisa Henderson

This recipe was passed on by Mum....after I failed dismally making scones for my daughter! It is truly the quickest yummiest scone recipe - not too sweet- and whipped up in a minute!

I gave it a try just now and it was a complete disaster. I followed the recipe but it was very watery, so I tried adding another 1/4 cup of flour to it. Still watery but I tried to put it on the floured board anyway. I have covered both my hands and the board with plenty of flour but it still sticks everywhere. *sigh* So I poured it back to the bowl and added another 1/4 cup of flour to it. Tried once again to put it on the floured board... still too watery. I tried to pour it back to the bowl again. The whole thing fell onto the floor and the bowl broke into pieces and that's the end of my story.
