Ingredients
  • 510g Plain Flour
  • 5 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 60g Butter
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar
  • 2 Teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1 Teaspoon Nutmeg
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • ¾ Cup Milk
  • Cinnamon Sugar
  • 80g Butter - Melted
  • 200g Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Cinnamon
  • Filling
  • 200ml Cream
  • 80g Icing Sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 4 Teaspoon Water (Optional)
  • 1 Teaspoon Gelatin (Optional)
  • Strawberry Jam
Instructions
  1. To start, flick oven on to 180°C degrees bake and line an oven tray with baking paper.
  2. Using a large bowl, add all of the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.
  3. Add the butter and rub in to dry ingredients until it resembles a fine crumb.
  4. Finally, pour in milk and vanilla, and mix through with a knife until dough comes together (Add a little more milk or flour to get the right consistency).
  5. Turn dough out onto a floured bench and knead for about a minute before rolling dough out to approximately 1cm thickness.
  6. Using a circular cookie cutter or upside down drinking glass, cut out circles of dough and arrange them on a prepared baking tray.
  7. Bake for 15 minutes or until risen and cooked through.
  8. While baking, start prepping the cinnamon sugar.
  9. Melt butter in a bowl a set-aside. Also mix together the sugar and cinnamon in another bowl too.
  10. When the scones come out of the oven, immediately coat them in melted butter and cover with cinnamon sugar one at a time. Set aside to cool completely.
  11. Once cooled, it’s time to fill with whipped cream. I like to use gelatin to stabilise the whipped cream, which then holds nicely inside the scones.
  12. So to start, add the water to a ramekin, then sprinkle over gelatin. Allow to sit for roughly 5 minutes.
  13. Either using a free-standing mixer or a hand-held beater beat the cream, icing sugar and vanilla for a minute to combine.
  14. When the gelatin is set, place in the microwave for 10 seconds to melt back into a liquid before pouring into the cream mixture while beating on a high speed. Continue to beat until whipped.
  15. To assemble your Sconuts, slice in half, pipe with whipped cream and add a dollop of strawberry jam. Perfect to enjoy with a hot cup of tea!
