The bane of my existence. I don't often do the baking thing, mostly for the sake of the size of my backside, as I am unable to resist any sort of home baked good. The kids do like get VERY excited it when I bake (poor souls), but the reason for this domestic fling is that it is a pre-requisite to provide a decent smoko for any workers.

Today being such a day that workers will need to be catered for, I made some scones for smoko. Ideally scones are best made the same morning they are to be served, but seeing as I cannot be in two places at once (ie I will be out in the paddock during the morning!) I've whipped these up yesterday afternoon.

This recipe has been around for awhile, but I thought I would share my version of it.

"Miracle Scones"

4 cups SR Flour
300ml Cream
300ml lemonade *
Mix altogether in a bowl until combined, then knead gently on floured surface. Roll out to around 3cm in thickness and then cut with scone cutters. Place touching on a greased (and floured if feeling excited) tray and bake for around 15 minutes at 250 Celsius

* my recipe says a whole can, but I always end up having to add more flour, so I cut back on the lemonade this time.

I had a small bit of dough left over, so made a sort of jam turnover thing for the kids to have at school.

  1. Mmmmm!! Everything looks so delicious!!! Could you please tell me what a "smoko" is? I have no idea!! :)

  2. This is the recipe we had at kinder - they are so very yummy! I need to use about a third of the quantity over here though ... no hungry blokes on smoko here!

  3. My mum introduced me to the lemonade scone :)
    And how the hell do you wait to they where cold!!!!!

  4. I have always come over puzzled over the lemonade requirement in a good scone. And I haven't a single doubt that the jam turnover thing will be complete success. It's about time for smoko right here, right now...

  5. Yum, you're making me hungry... even though I've just had dinner. Hmmmmm!
