Canowindra CWA Scone Recipe

There are plenty of ways to make scones.. This one made by a Canowindra CWA Branch member works well and makes a big batch! 

Tip: Use Gluten Free Flour to make a gluten free batch!

  • 450 grams Self Raising Flour (Out of self raising flour? Add 6 tsp of baking powder to the 450g of plain flour. Sift the flour and baking powder together before you use it to make sure it's all evenly distributed.)
  • 10 grams Baking Powder
  • 5 grams Salt
  • 1 tablespoon Sugar
  • 110 grams Cold Unsalted Butter
  • 300 mls Full Cream Milk    
  1. Sift flour, add other dry ingredients, rub in chopped butter to form a breadcrumb texture.  Add milk to dry ingredients and mix gently to make a soft dough (only 30 seconds of mixing needed)

  2. Place on a lightly floured board and pat out to a thickness of about 2.5cm. Cut with a floured scone cutter.  Push left over dough together and lightly knead are cut remaining scones until all dough is used.

  3. Place on a lined baking tray and bake in a hot oven (210 degrees fan forced) for about 12-15 minutes until they are golden on the bottom and top. Serve with a fruit jam (such as strawberry) and whipped cream.
