Hi all! Im calling on all the foodies here on BYP for their knowledge again. I have a great scone recipe, but I would like to know how to make those nice soft scones. They have a softer texture to normal scones. If anybody knows what Im talking about and has a recipe, I would be so happy!! A soft pumpkin scone recipe would be even better!
:thanks:
Wendy

Lemonade Scones....
A big favourite around here :thumbs:

Ingredients
2 cups self-raising flour, sifted
1/4 cup caster sugar
1/2 cup thick cream
1/2 cup lemonade
2 tbs milk

Method
Preheat the oven to 220°C. Lightly grease a baking tray.

Place the flour, sugar and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Add the cream and lemonade and mix to form a soft dough. Turn out onto a lightly floured workbench and knead lightly until combined. Press the dough with your hands to a thickness of about 2cm. Use a 6cm round cutter to cut out 8 scones, place on baking tray and brush the tops with some milk. Bake for 10-15 minutes until lightly browned. Serve warm with your favourite jam.

I make the lemonade scones as well but mine doesn't have the milk or the sugar in it.

3 cups of SR flour
1 cup cream
1 can lemonade
I also add a dash of vanilla extract.

add more Flour if it's too runny or sticky. Mix it all together until it just comes together..the secret to really light scones is DO NOT knead the dough..just bring it together and press into your board and cut in required way.
They are very light and yummy

Yours sound better Darssy !

My recipe is a little too sweet for my liking but the kids and everyone else love them so I continue to make them...

Might do yours next time and see if they notice any difference :biggrin: less sugar would be much better.

For making savoury scones I wonder if it would work if you subsituted soda water for lemonade?

I just had a thought too..I think I end up using 4 cups of flour.
I have made them savoury with the lemonade..
Here is the website I got the recipe from. It was devine..especially with the cream cheese and smoked salmon. It felt like we were in eating in an elite coffee shop. hehehe

You can substitute any softdrink with bubbles = basically if you want ginger scones, use ginger ale (and maybe add some glace ginger bits as well!!

This is a recipe for soft pumpkin scones that someone at my work gave me years ago. They said it was from Flo Bjelke-Petersen - who knows? Anyway, the scones aren't bad and they're easy.

2 cups SR flour
1.5 tblspn butter
0.5 cup sugar
1 egg
1 cup cooked, mashed pumpkin

Cream butter and sugar. Add egg, then pumpkin, then flour.
Spoon onto greased oven tray.
Bake 180C about 15 mins.

I like to add a little cinnamon, nutmeg or ginger as well, depending how I feel.

The trick is to work quickly.
Have your oven to temperature and your baking sheet ready before you add the wet ingrediants to the dry.

Once you've added the wet ingrediants work quickly, don't overmix or overwork the dough.
Get it on the board, cut to shape and onto the baking tray pronto.

My Grandmother makes the best cheese scones and this was always her advice to me.

Thanks Meredith, I think thats definately good advice.Im sure I overwork it sometimes. Thankyou :)


I made some yummy cinnamon scrolls the other day as an experiment.
I made a scone dough and rolled it out to about 20cm x 40cm and spread with a mix of butter, sugar and cinnamon creamed together. Then rolled it up fairly tighly from the long end, cut 3cm pieces and layed them on a lightly floured baking tray. Cooked in medium oven until golden on top. (about 12-15mins) The cinnamon mix was oozing out but once they were cooked and cool the ooz was like caramel. YUM! Once cool I drizzled the top with plain icing sugar and hot water mix. Kids thought they were awesome.

If you want them soft on the outside, cover with a teatowel once they're out of the oven. It keeps them from developing the crust.

My mum taught me always to line a colander with a clean tea towel and wrap them in that to keep them soft- and has the bonus of keeping them warm while you get the tea ready!
I have always made the traditional flour/butter/milk scones- I don't even put any sugar in mine but I was thinking to try the lemonade ones after this months delicious mag had some with white chocolate added.
