The time has come to sort out the cookbook shelf. Ah!!! What to keep & what not. I kept an eye out for scone recipes & in the Willow Cookery Book 11th Edition from 1969 found a very simple recipe using just
Self raising flour. Butter. Milk. Salt.
I can’t find the book online anywhere. I also have a well used Schauer Improved Cookery Book from 1931 which has buttermilk scones, I wonder if it’s like the mysterious Masterchef recipe. There’s also an equally well used CWA Coronation Cookbook 5th Edition from 1947 & this also has icing sugar in their scones like the current CWA cookbook. I’ve found an amazing variety of recipes but can you guess what’s a gundowinga scone! To be continued…..
