I found this recipe way too wet, and had to add quite a lot of extra flour to make it into a workable dough, and even then, it was really too sticky to roll easily and cut into scone shapes. - 11 Oct 2012


The recipe was very wet, added lots of extra flour and got it to the right consistency. Thanks for sharing x - 28 Jul 2015


Like Julie I found this recipe to wet and had to add extra flour to make it a workable dough.Saying that when done these were the best I have baked and didn't go dry even after a week. Also I doubled up on the quantities as I like big scones it made 14 scones 4" in diameter and added 2 tsp baking powder. A great recipe thank you - 12 Jan 2015
