Scones for Afternoon Tea


500ml cake flour (280g)

15 ml baking powder

2ml salt

75ml caster sugar (60g)

65g margarine or butter

1 egg

125ml milk


Lipton Green tea

  • Sift dry ingredients together. Add sugar
  • Rub margarine into dry ingredients until mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Mix egg and milk together and add to dry ingredients, forming soft, but not sticky, dough.
  • Turn out onto a floured surface and pat out lightly, to a thickness of 20mm. Cut into rounds or squares. Place on a greased baking tray and bake in a preheated oven at 200 degrees Celsius (400 degrees Fahrenheit)for 12-15 min.
  • Serve scones with honey, syrup, grated cheese, butter, cream and jam.


So finally I remembered to take my camera and snap a couple of picks while I did some baking. I am passionate about food,so I will be putting up some food posts from now on. They came out really nice and soft, which is great. I was able to use my moms beautiful tea cups which are amazing,love the vintage feel too them. I am quite pick about the tea I drink, Lipton Green tea seems to be the only tea that soothes and relaxes me,so I highly recommend it!

What kinds of tea do you use?
