Hello and welcome to another week on the blog.  We have had a few requests for Glenis's beautiful Scone receipe with jam and cream.....

Glenis's Scones..

Place in a bowl  -  2 Heaped cups of Self Raising Flour and 1/4 cup sugar.

Place in a 500ml tupperware shaker - 300ml cream, 2 eggs and the fill to the top with milk - then shake.

Tip into bowl with dry ingredients and mix with a knife.  The mixture should be sticky but hold shape and drop off the spoon - not like a cake mixture.  Spray baste muffin tins with oil and drop spoonfulls into the muffin trays.    Makes 12 scones..... Set oven at approx 185 degree for about 15mins...
