Scones set to steal the Show

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Street Watch -

JAYNE Kay is hop­ing she will have the win­ning edge for the fourth year in a row, when she en­ters her scones in the 2016 Perth Royal Show Cook­ery Com­pe­ti­tion.

The 12-year-old found her win­ning recipe when she started cook­ing with her grandma four years ago. She said their scone recipe was light and fluffy.

“I love cook­ing the scones and my grandma talks me through it while I make them,” she said. “The se­cret to the scones be­ing so light and fluffy is that we melt the but­ter in­stead of mix­ing it in.”

Jayne’s recipe has not only won the ju­nior cat­e­gory for the past three years, but also the open cat­e­gory.

“I will cook three batches of 12 scones, to choose the best six to present to judges,” she said. “The scones will go on a pa­per plate with other con­tes­tants, so the judges don’t know who they be­long too.”
