Ginger Scone




Wife loves scones, any kind of scones. This ginger scone is her contribution to my LTU blog event. The use of ginger ale and candied ginger give the scone a gingery kick! The flaky layers make the scones so tender and light. Spread with butter and jam, we could not stop eating them for our Sunday Tea.

Just 4 ingredients, this recipe is so fast and easy. You should try it!

Ingredients

2 cups self raising flour
1 cup candied ginger (chopped)
1 can ginger ale
300ml heavy cream

Method

Preheat oven to 200C.

Sift self raising flour into a mixing bowl.

Add candied ginger, thick cream and ginger ale. Mix to form a dough.

On a floured work surface, knead the dough with lots of love for a minute or two. Gently pat the dough down until it stands about 2 - 3 cm thick.

Using a round cookie cutter or glass, cut out the scones. Simply roll up the remaining dough mixture and repeat the process until the dough is all used up.

Place the scones on a baking tray and brush the tops with milk.

Bake the scones for 10-15 minutes until golden brown. Enjoy!

  1. Goodness gracious me!!! I could literally sense those scones of yours calling out to me...eat me, bite into me. Gosh!!! They look sooooo good!

    I love rich butter scones with clotted cream & fruit jam - simply enjoy those traditional English cream teas. Bet with the ginger added, it would bring the taste up to a whole new level...

    1. Hi Jeannie! Great to hear from someone who had tried this! I like it this way (light, without butter)... more versatile in my opinion - For those butter lovers out there, you can still spread lots of butter on the scones. :D
