Easy Cinnamon Scrolls

My mums go to recipe when people are popping over for morning tea is a batch of scones. She has a knack for making them perfectly fluffy and round, but not too round – just perfect.  She learnt from the best (my Grandma and Great Grandma) and I from her so you’d think mine would be just as good.


I don’t know what I do but every time I make them they are with either too hard, don’t rise well or they are just crumbly and bleh.

So that’s it I’m hanging up my Scone Hat and never making a batch again! I’ll just enjoy them all the more when I pop over to Mum’s for morning tea.  I’m now concentrating my energy on something I can get right – cinnamon scrolls!
