Tips for Making Perfect Thermomix Scones

  1. Scones like the cold.
    • Use cold butter straight from the fridge
    • Winter is a great time to cook scones because the house is cold.
    • Use ice-cold buttermilk in the scone mixture
  2. Scones don’t like warm hands.
    • Use a Thermomix or food processor to combine the butter and flour.
    • Hands are warm and will melt the butter causing it to be absorbed by the flour making the scones heavy. The cold butter will coat the flour.
    • Don’t knead the mixture ever! Once the liquid is added process until just barely combined.
  3. Scones like to be close to other scones on the baking tray. This helps them to rise evenly. Place the scones on the baking tray so that they touch.

Basically, the best scones are a result of throwing all the ingredients in the Thermomix and processing as described in the recipe. The less fussing the better. Turn the dough onto the floured bench and cut it into squares or use a round cookie cutter.

Make sure you flour the cookie cutter or knife between each scone so the mixture doesn’t stick.

Baking Your Scones

It’s best to bake the scones as soon as the mixture has been prepared. For this reason it’s best to get organised before you commence the recipe.

  • Make sure you pre-heat the oven prior to commencing the recipe.
  • Remove baking tray from the oven. (Do not put scones on a hot tray.)
  • Line a 27 x 40 cm baking tray with paper or a silicone mat.

Have you seen my other scone recipes?

For an extra special scone why not try my Blueberry & White Chocolate Scone with lemon glaze.  I modeled that recipe on the Bakers Delight version but I do think my recipe is better.

Or these delicious fluffy scone that have been winning CWA Scone Baking competitions for more than 60 years.

Serving Suggestions

Scones are always best served straight from the oven. I love to offer a few different topping options;

Lemon Curd with Cream

Strawberry Jam & Homemade Butter

Passionfruit Curd

Spiced Plum Jam with Chantilly Cream

What if I don’t have Buttermilk?

There are a few option for making these scones if you don’t have buttermilk.

  • Substitute the buttermilk for yoghurt
  • Add 50% milk and 50% sour cream
  • Use my other Fluffy scone recipe

  • 450 gm SR flour
  • 60 gm butter cut into cubes
  • 1 Tbs caster sugar
  • 320 gm buttermilk
  • 1 pinch salt


  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius and line a baking tray with paper or a silicone mat

  • Scrape down the bowl.
  • Add the buttermilk to the TM bowl. Kneed 30 sec/Dough setting.
  • Place the dough onto a floured bench and push gently into a square shape about an inch thick.
  • Cut the dough into 16 even squares with a knife. Or use a cookie cutter to cut circles.
  • Place the scones on the baking tray and brush with extra buttermilk.
  • Cook for 10- 15 minutes or until golden.


Make sure the scones are touching on the tray as they cook.  This will help them keep their shape and rise uniformly. 
Try to handle the scone mixture as little as possible. Warm hands will expand the starch in the flour leading to tough scones.

    Can you double the recipe in the thermomix or is it better to do as 2 batches? Thanks

    1. Julie Carlyle says:

      Hi Susie,
      You will need to make the scones in two separate batches. Lucky it doesn’t take long. 🙂

    Just made for my children for morning tea to celebrate last day of home schooling.
    Being from the UK I was brought up on scones! Would never have thought that these were better than my mums!!
    I made wish trim milk and they were still awesome. Had with butter, raspberry jam and freshly whipped cream.
    Big hit with the children
