To Serve

  1. Serve scones with mixed berries jam and crème fraiche / whipped cream.


Cooking time will vary depending on the size of the scones. Scones can be baked and frozen then reheated for later consumption. The Sterilise Crockery Function can also be used to sterilize preserving jars. To test if jam has set correctly, place a tablespoon of jam onto a frozen saucer. It should set within 1 – 2 minutes. To make your own buttermilk, simply combine 1 tbsp white vinegar / lemon juice for every 1 cup whole milk. Gently stir and let the mixture sit for about 5 minutes. This will allow the milk to slightly curdle, giving it a buttermilk-like texture and taste.
