You need to try these No Butter Sugar-Free Australian Scones


A scone is a baked good, usually made of either wheat or oatmeal with baking powder as a leavening agent, and baked on sheet pans. A scone is often lightly sweetened and occasionally glazed with egg wash. The scone is a basic component of the cream tea.

My family recipe for scones has been passed down from my great-grandmother. It was done you were taught as you grew, but one day, I found quantities!! In South Africa, scones are like cake – sweet and with egg. In Australia, they are more like bread. I use this recipe for fruit scones (I add a tablespoon of sugar and about a cup of fruit) and for pizza scones (roll out flat, add toppings, roll up, slice, and bake).
