GRANNY’S SCONE RECIPE

Fresh and hot from the oven, these scones from Chantelle & Marizanne of Camdeboo Cottages and Karoopark Guesthouse in Graaff Reinet are made with a recipe passed down from their grandmother – it doesn’t get more authentically Karoo than recipes shared through generations. Happy baking!

560g (4 x 250ml) flour

2ml salt

250ml buttermilk or maas

2 eggs

40ml baking powder

80g butter or margarine (Chantelle says she always uses butter)

125ml water

  1. Pre-heat oven to 240 °C
  2. Mix all dry ingredients together
  3. Rub in butter or margarine, handling as gently and lightly as possible
  4. In a bowl, beat eggs, buttermilk and water together
  5. Add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients, just enough to make a medium-firm dough
  6. Pat out the mixture and cut scones 3cm thick
  7. Place on a greased baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes

Slather with butter, jam, cream or cheese or any combination thereof! Enjoy!
