Easy scones

    35 min

    Don't be put off by the mayonnaise - it gives the scones a lighter texture. These are so easy to make and a great beginner recipe. I put them into paper muffin cups as it's easier than rolling out and cutting them.

    I made these scones with wholemeal flour and half fat mayo and they turned out brilliantly. I didn't use muffin cases, I used grease proof paper and dollopped big mounds, 6 mounds to be exact. I used half of the milk stated in the recipe. I sprinkled a little sugar on top before baking. I also added 100g raisins. I loved these with jam. I will definately make these again.  -  10 May 2010


    Made it healthier. I made these with Wholemeal flour, used extra light mayo and "half half" sugar (1.5 tbsp), I also added blueberries because there were some in the fridge. The wholemeal flour meant they needed an little longer and took 35 mins.  -  25 Jul 2009


    Altered ingredient amounts. I used light mayonaise and it was fine, plus I put sultanas in.  -  16 Jun 2009
