Preparation time 15 mins Cooking time 1 hour Makes 9
3 cups self-raising flour 250ml thickened cream 250ml lemonade, at
Icing sugar mixture, to dust Jam and whipped cream, to serve
STEP 1 Grease the bowl of a 5.7L slow cooker appliance, and line with a large sheet of baking paper to cover the base and 3cm up the side.
STEP 2 Put flour in a large bowl. Combine cream and lemonade in a jug and pour into the centre of the flour. Use a butter knife to combine, using a cutting action to bring the dough together. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and shape into a 3cm-high oval. Use a 7cm round cookie cutter to cut out 9 scones.
STEP 3 Arrange scones in prepared appliance bowl. Cover the opening of the appliance bowl with a tea towel, ensuring the towel doesn’t touch the scone dough, then cover with lid. Fold up the tea towel edges so they cover the outside of the lid. Cook on the high setting for 1 hour.
STEP 4 Remove bowl from appliance, remove lid and tea towel, then remove scones. Dust scones with icing sugar mixture, then serve with jam and cream.
