Day 2 : Scone challenge

Today’s Scone recipe I got from a friend.  I am quite happy with the results!



  • 2 cups plain flour, sifted
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 cup milk


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 220 degree C. Combine flour, baking powder and a salt in a large bowl. Using a fork, whisk egg, oil and milk in a jug. Add egg mixture to dry ingredients. Mix until just combined (the less you work the dough, the better), adding a little more milk if required.
  2. Turn dough onto a floured board and pat out until 2 cm thick. Fold the dough in half and cut out scones. Place on baking tray, allowing a little room for spreading. Bake scones for 10 minutes or until risen and light brown. Serve scones hot with butter and jam.
