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 30 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

Spiced Plum Jam with Chantilly Cream

Strawberry Jam & Homemade Butter

Passionfruit Curd

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

  5. Place the dough onto a floured bench and push gently into a square shape about an inch thick.

  6. Cut the dough into 16 even squares with a knife. Or use a cookie cutter to cut circles.

Recipe Notes

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.

    I noticed no mention of the half teaspoon of lemon juice in the method of making the scones. When do I add it in? Thanks.

    1. Sorry Junie, I have amended the recipe. The lemon juice is added with the milk. Thank you for pointing out that missing detail.

    Hi Julie, just baked your yummy scone recipe – we loved them with golden syrup and lemon butter. Prepared in Thermomix – where would I be with out it. Happy new year and happy cooking. ????

    Best scones ever!
    Thanks ever so much for sharing your recipe.
    It has become a family favourite.
    Thank you,

  4. Claudia says:

    No yeast???

    1. Hi Claudia, that is correct, the recipe doesn’t use yeast. Scones are traditionally made with baking powder not yeast. I hope you give the recipe a try ???

  5. Lana says:

    Can I add sultanas or will it throw the recipe out?

    1. Absolutely! Sultan and are great in the recipe?

  6. Angie says:

    These scones look yum. I notice in Tip 2 you say to add water in the directions. Is this meant to be milk?

    1. Oops, good spotting 🙂 Yes it’s milk. I will fix that now 🙂

  7. Joyellen says:

    When the dough is mixed, u plop it onto bench. Won’t u have to roll it out to a inch thick so u can cut it. I’ve neva made scones before that’s why I’m asking

    1. Hi Joyellen, I just use my hands to gently form a rectangle shape. Try and handle the dough as little as possible for the lightest scones 🙂

  8. Gabriele says:

    Hi from Canada. I am not good with scones and I have now baked some nice hockey pucks. I am also not used to the abbreviation SR, I thought it was a funky flour, so I moved forward with all purpose flour. It is only in hindsight I realized it meant self rising flour. You might want to write it out for us less experienced bakers. Will try again with the proper ingredient.

    1. Thanks so much for your message Gabriele. I will most definitely use the full name of the flour in future. It never occurred to me that SR would cause a problem but now that you pointed it out I realise that it is a sill abbreviation that probably means nothing to half the world. Will correct it now 🙂

  9. Sarah says:

    Hi there, how can I store these and how long will they last? Thinking of making these tomorrow to have on Sunday for an afternoon tea?

    1. Hi Sarah,
      I’m so sorry, I just saw your message. Yes, these are fine cooked the day before serving. To store just place them in an airtight container, then reheat them to serve.

  10. Michelle says:

    Have you had success freezing and then serving the scones?
    I need to cook a lot for a function on the weekend.

    1. Scones usually freeze very well. I haven’t frozen these but I’m sure they would be fine. To reheat wrap in foil and warm gently in the oven.

    Just made these and they turned out fabulous! Thank you for the recipe.

    1. Awesome! I’m so pleased you enjoyed the recipe 🙂

  13. Jocelyn Ong says:

    Thank you for your lovely recipe. May I know how I can incorporate wholemeal flour or oats into this recipe? How much of SR flour should I cut and replace? Thank you!

    1. Hi Jocelyn
      Thank you for your question, adding wholemeal flour or oats will change the recipe quite a lot. Both of those ingredients draw a significant amount of moisture out of the scone mixture and would have a tendency to make the scones tougher and drier. I will try a create a specific wholemeal scone recipe for you to try.
      Thank you for taking the time to comment.
      Happy cooking

    Just like Church goes, this recipe has become routine in my house and now my kids think am the best Chef…Thank you.

    1. I am so pleased Sutso xx
      Thank you for coming back and sharing.

  15. Lyndssey says:

    Can I use wholemeal flour and add in baking powder since the wholemeal flour is not self raising

    1. Hi Lyndssey
      Yes, you can use wholemeal flour but you will need a little bit of extra liquid and baking powder. Use 2 tsp of baking powder per 1 cup of plain flour.
      Happy cooking

    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

  17. Susie says:

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

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