Damper Scones

A Devonshire tea, with tea, scones, jam and cream,  is a must when spending time with family and friends. This is my no fail damper style scone recipe.
This recipe never fails me, and everyone always enjoys these scones. They freeze beautifully, and then can either be reheated in the microwave or oven. If you have these scones in your freezer, morning tea can be organised within 30 minutes.


3 cups Self-Raising Flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 pinch salt
300ml cream + 300ml for whipped cream to serve
300ml water
Jam and butter

  1. Pre-heat oven to 220*C.
  2. In a large bowl sift the flour and salt.
  3. Add the sugar.
  4. Pour in the cream.
  5. Add 1/2 the water and stir with a butter knife.
  6. Add the remaining water if required. Mix until like a bread dough mixture.
  7. Spray and flour a baking tray.
  8. Pour mixture onto tray.
  9. Score top with a sharp knife.
  10. Brush with milk.
  11. Cook in hot oven at 200*C for 17 to 20 mins.
  12. Allow to cool.

Warm wishes,
