I am very serious when I say that “this recipe really works!”

I shared it on my ‘Food before 5’ page a little while back & ended up having women from all over the world baking them & sending me photos.   It is a recipe that has been passed down generations in my husband’s family and now I am sharing it with you.  Get started now & these soft & fluffy scones will be ready within 25 mins!

Enjoy!

Amanda started on this journey when her 3rd child was born, and feeding a family of 5 became even more of a challenge with three children under 3 1/2 years of age!

    I would love to know if you think this recipe would work with Gluten Free flour and coconut cream? Need to adjust due to intolerances.

      Hi Kelly, I know this recipe works with GF flour but you just need to make the scones a little thicker as they don’t rise as much. I haven’t tried it with coconut cream though.

      Any other questions, please let me know,
