Jam & Cream Topped Scones

Here in Australia we make a more sweetened type of scone, often adding dried fruits such as sultanas or topping a plain scone with jam and cream. my favourite is strawberry or raspberry jam & whipped cream....yum! especially served warm from the oven. a nice cup of tea nicely rounds of a delicious afternoon tea!

  Scone recipe

3 cups (450g) self-raising flour
1 tsp caster sugar
Pinch salt
50g butter, chopped
1 1/4 cups (310ml) milk
Milk, extra, to glaze
strawberry or raspberry jam, to serve
Double cream, to serve

Hi Sunshine Girl,
It's a pleasure to meet you. Your scones look wonderful and I always put dried fruit in mine too; raisins, dried cranberries, even left over fruit from my fruit cakes. Yours look yummy with jam and cream!
You are more than welcome to link up to my tea party if you like. Would love to have you! Hope you're having a lovely day.

Blessings,
Sandi

I put dried fruit in scones, but I do not remember adding cream on top. Yours look very tempting, and I bet they are wonderful with tea or coffee. Thanks so much for sharing your scones at my party. I'm your newest follower! Hope to see you again next week!
