Bake it Forward

Let’s turn every cup of tea and every bite of a scone into a gesture of kindness! To get you baking, we love this scone with jam and cream recipe.


  • 2 cups of self-raising flour.
  • ¼ cup of sugar.
  • ½ teaspoon salt.
  • 1/3 cup cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes.
  • 1 cup of milk.
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract (optional).
  • Cream, whipped to form slight peaks, serve plain or sweeten with a touch or sugar or vanilla.
  • Your choice of delicious Jam, strawberry, raspberry or apricot!


  • Preheat oven to 220c. Line a tray with baking paper.
  • Mix the flour, sugar and salt. Add the butter pieces and combine with the dry ingredients – do this using your fingertips – the result should give you a crumb mixture.
  • Create a well in the mixture and pour in the milk and optional vanilla extract.
  • Gently mix the ingredients together with a spatula, starting from the centre.
  • Place the mixture onto a lightly floured board and knead gently, don’t overdo it.
  • Spread the dough to about 2.5cms thick and using a round cutter or knife shape the scones.
  • Place the scones on a baking paper lined tray.
  • Bake the scones until golden, approximately 12-15 minutes.

Serve your warm delicious scones with your favourite jam and a dollop of cream!
