Scone for one: Just three ingredients!


I’m a big fan of the scone. If you read this blog, you probably know it already. A few years ago I made this recipe for a one-person scone. The photos were a bit… well… crap, so I did a little reshoot. Anything for a scone. Anything.

There are moments when life calls for a one-person scone. Because sometimes you’re not having guests and you can’t make a whole batch, but you just one to steal a moment for yourself, watch your favourite TV show/read a magazine/sit in silence, and eat a scone.

This is for those moments.


1/2 cup of self-raising flour
1/2 tablespoon icing sugar
2 tablespoons of thickened cream


♥ Preheat oven to 180 degree celcius
♥ Place all ingredients into a small bowl
♥ Mix until all combined
♥ Knead a little {I did it in the bowl roughly because I didn’t want to dirty a bench surface}
♥ Form into a nice round shape {about 5cm wide}
♥ Place on some baking paper on a tray
♥ Brush with a little milk
♥ Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown
♥ Enjoy with a little jam and cream whenever your heart desires

Are you a fan of scones?

  1. One? How could that possibly suffice?!!! 😀

    I am going to try it though, sometimes a quick, simple treat really just hits the spot, right?

  2. Chantelle this is fabulous and dangerous in equal parts! I’ve been known to make a batch only to have half the batch spoil because we didn’t eat them quick enough. Just one? Perfect for school days when I don’t have to share!

  3. That is so funny- I just thought to myself that ‘it’s a scone kind of morning’ and was going to make this exact scone! I found this recipe a couple of months ago on your blog and I kinda wish I didn’t.. I am ADDICTED!! Thanks for the recipe- best scone I’ve ever tasted! x

  4. Hi Chantelle! I’m popping over from Ms Mystery Case. 🙂 Can’t wait to explore your blog a bit! And I’m excited about this scone recipe. My husband’s grandmother was English and we have her recipe for shortbread that is to die for. Can’t wait to try this!

    Have a great day!

  5. My Man coined a new phrase last week… “scone-oiseur.” He believes he is a scone expert. I’ve always been a bit of a scone traditionalist, but last week I tried date and chocolate scones- gamechanger! I shall have to give this recipe a whirl for my Resident Scone-oiseur xx
