Scones with jam and cream

Makes 12

  • 350g Super Maize Meal Magnifisan
  • 5ml (1 tsp) baking powder
  • 5ml (1 tsp) salt
  • 60g butter chilled and cubed
  • 45ml (3 tbsp) castor sugar
  • 150ml amasi
  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C.
  2. In a large bowl, sift the maize, baking powder and salt. Rub the butter into the maize until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  3. Add the sugar and mix to combine. Make a well in the centre of the maize ingredients and add the amasi. With the back of a knife mix until the mixture just comes together to form a dough.
  4. Turn the dough onto a lightly maized work surface and pat the dough out to about 2cm in thickness. Using a cookie cutter, dip into a little maize meal and cut out rounds.
  5. Gently lift onto a prepared baking tray and bake for 10 – 12 minutes. Serve with jam and cream while still hot.
