I believe this is the recipe that the Country Womens Association used at the Royal Melbourne Show. Light and fluffy.this one is a no brainer! Served with cream and jam.......ooohhhhhhhh so very yummy! High Tea anyone?


  1. Sift flour and salt really well together.
  2. Add sufficient enough milk and cream gradually, to make a firm but not dry mixture (just enough milk to make a dough, which is easy to handle and not too sticky, without to much extra flour on the board).
  3. Roll the mixture one way lightly. Cut and place scone shapes on a cold tray and brush tops with a little milk or melted butter.
  4. Bake in an oven set at 220C for 8 to 10 minutes.

These nice scones were quick and easy to make. I made exactly as written and scaled the recipe down making them for myself, I got 4 scones. They were perfect served with orange honey butter and spanish hot chocolate. Thank you for sharing your recipe Tisme.

Mmm, great scones. These were so easy and quick to make and came out so fluffy, tall and perfect. YUM! Loved the taste of these, too. I added a tbs or so of sugar to the dough, but other than that stuck to your recipe.
I scaled the recipe down to make 9 scones, but somehow I ended up with only 4 scones. Not to worry, I could improvise some more dough to make up for that.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing a real keeper with us, Tis!

I scaled this back for 12 but got 8 but I used my large scone cutter and they also took about 12 minutes to cook (the picture doesn't do them justice as they were in fact a nice golden colour) and the texture is soft a crumbly and made for a great afternoon tea with a touch of butter, strawberry jam (sugar free) and whipped cream, thank you Tisme made for Make My Recipe - Edition 14.
