The best way to have jam is on the failthful old scone.  Many have made scones and not succeeded.  I have used a recipe from school for many years now and have not had a failure yet.  Have made these camping and cooked them in the camp oven - what a treat.  Please enjoy.

Basic Scone dough

2 cups self raising flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons butter
200 ml milk

  1. Sift flour and salt into a bowl
  2. Rub butter in with fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  3. Make a well in the centre
  4. Gradually add the milk and mix with a knife to form a moist dough.
  5. Turn out onto a floured board a
  6. Press out to about 2.5 cm thickness.
  7. Cut out circles with a cutter or a wine glass.
  8. Place finished scone into the centre of the tray and work outwards with each scone making sure scones tough each other.
  9. Glaze with a zizzle of milk
  10. Bale in a hot oven for 10 - 12 min.  Or place them into the camp oven for a treat when camping.
  11. When cooked tap scone on the base, like bread it will sound hollow.  Then you know they are aready.
  12. Serve immediately with you favourite jam or golden syrup and a dollup of cream.
  13. Cover the remainders in a tea towel and devour when cold.
 Makes approx 12
