When I was little, my mom always had tea parties for me. And I would feel like a real ‘lady’ when she would serve my friends and I, Tea and Scones with Jam & Cream. To this day, everytime I eat a scone I think of that.

There is something so incredibly comforting about biting into a warm, doughy scone topped with sweet Strawberry jam and luscious cream. And of course, a cup of tea just rounds the picture off perfectly.
My mom always used the recipe out of “Huisgenoot se Wenresepte” and I dare not use any other recipe. This is sooo simple and you’ll have to really restrain yourself from biting into these beauties before they’ve cooled down a bit. Why not try them this weekend?


Makes 12

280g (500ml) Self Raising Flour
2ml Salt
1 Egg
150ml Milk
25ml Oil

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Sift together the flour and salt. In a separate bowl, beat the egg, milk and oil together. With a palate knife, mix with milk mixture into the dry ingredients until just combined. On a floured surface, turn the dough out and pres slightly until about 2cm thick. With a cookie cutter/glass, cut 12 circles out of the dough and place on a greased baking tray. Brush with a bit of extra milk and bake for 12-15 minutes until golden. Serve warm with Cream & Jam/ Jam & Cheese.
