Scone Premix (20x500g)
Makes 9 scones per premix pack.
- Place the entire 500-gram pre-mix into a mixing bowl.
- Add 250-gram butter (cold) Rub the Butter using your fingertips (do not let the butter become warm or you will end up with hard flat scones.), until the mixture has a coarse crumb texture.
- Add 3 eggs to ± 100 grams Buttermilk and beat until well mixed.
- Add to the Flour mixture.
- Using a wooden ladle (spoon) gently pour the liquid into the mixture until a soft dough is formed. Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and gently flatten to a thickness of 2 cm.
- Cut out rounds using a cookie – cutter.
- Place the scones on a greased baking tray.
- Place the scones in the refrigerator for 15 minutes. This will allow the scones to have a good rise when baked.
- Remove the scones from the refrigerator and glaze the top and the sides of the scones with a mixture of Milk and a pinch of salt. This will allow for the scones to have a glossy shine.
- Bake for 10 to 15 minutes at 180°C until puffed up and golden brown
- Grate the butter before blending it with the pre-mix.
- If you want a softer scone, pack the close to each other on the tray.
- As an alternative, add a cup of grated cheddar cheese to the mixture with a pinch of cayenne pepper.

Johan Stapelberg – Master Sourdough Baker
“I have been involved in the baking sector and many baking projects for 45 years and decided to apply my mind and came up with the idea to erect wood fired ovens, also better known as Masonry ovens at strategic points within the various communities where there is hunger and hardship.
But, to make this project sustainable and give it substance, I shared my idea of community ovens with Leon de Bruin and the idea was born to approach the Reformed Church in Pretoria which they took an immediate interest in. It must be stated from the outset that the vision and reach of this Communal Oven project is to be implemented in all churches and communities across South Africa and adjacent countries.”
