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 given to me by my neighbour, Jodie.


3 cups Self-Raising Flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 pinch salt
300ml cream + 300ml for whipping
300ml water
Jam, butter and extra cream for serving

  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.
