Country Women’s Association of Victoria Scones with 7 Minute Jam

The Country Women’s Association of Victoria are renowned for their Scones with Jam recipe. Recreate their classic recipe including a 7-minute raspberry jam, to share with family, friends and neighbours.

Ingredients

Scones:

  • 4 cups self-raising flour
  • 300ml cream
  • 300ml milk
  • A good pinch of salt

Raspberry Jam:

  • 1kg fresh or frozen raspberries
  • 750gm CSR White Sugar
  • Juice of 1 lemon

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C fan-forced. Grease and flour a tray.
  2. Sift self-raising flour and pinch of salt.
  3. Combine cream and milk. Add to flour and mix to form a soft dough (not too dry).
  4. Place on a lightly floured board and pat out to a thickness of approx. 2.5cm. Cut with a floured scone cutter. Don’t twist the cutter when cutting as you will get an uneven scone.
  5. Bake for 15-20 mins or until golden.
  6. In a medium sized pot, add raspberries and bring to the boil.
  7. While boiling, gradually add the white sugar, continuously stirring to dissolve. White sugar can be warmed a little in the oven first to help it dissolve quicker.
  8. Add lemon juice. Boil for 7 mins and bottle.
