About this recipe: This is as close as I could get to matching the recipe for the delicious scones they serve at Avoca!
I'm no baker, and this was the first time I'd baked scones. I halved the measurements of the recipe for my trial run. Since it was going to be a bit tough to manage half an egg, I threw in a full small pullet egg, and compensated by throwing in a couple of tbsp of flour, and less than a tsp of sugar. I ended up needing less than the 100 ml milk that the recipe called for (halved from original), so be sure to not add it all at once. I made mine with fresh blueberries (just threw them in there in the final stages of kneading the dough). I also sprinkled coarse sugar on top just before sticking it into the oven. It took longer than 20 mins to brown them... I just played it by ear and added 2 mins at a time till they browned. Turned out great! - 14 Oct 2010
This is the best ever scone recipe I make them for our community centre coffee morning every month and everyone loves them. Sometimes I add sultanasor or washed glace cherries - 14 Aug 2011
I made these for my girlfriend and was very nervous in case they'd turn out like bricks but they were top class! Really rich tasting too. - 19 Feb 2009
