Helen’s Home cooking Video and Recipe for Magic Scones

This has to be one of the most intriguing recipes ever. My Mum sent it to me this week so I decided to film the first time I used it. I can’t accredit the actual person who did the recipe as I don’t know their name but I can say it was in the Cockpen and Carrington Church Newsletter.

    • I’d imagine you’d need to use baking powder if using plain flour, probably at least two tsps worth to combat the double cream
