Made with buttermilk, these delectable scones are delicious served with crème fraîche and blackberry jam. You can also cook these on a cast-iron griddle over gas.


  • 450 g self-raising flour
  • ¼ t salt
  • 100 g cold butter, cubed
  • 85 g caster sugar
  • 1¼ cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup cultured crème fraîche
  • Blackberry jam, for serving

Cooking Instructions

Place the flour, salt, butter and sugar in a mixing bowl and rub together using your fingertips until the mixture resembles large breadcrumbs.

Add the buttermilk and use a wooden spoon to just bring the mixture together to form a dough. Place on a floured surface and shape into a ball, then gently roll out into a thickness of 3–4 cm. 3

Use a biscuit cutter to cut out rounds of dough, then place on a braai grid over low coals and cook undisturbed for 20 minutes, or until the scones have a slightly charred crust.

Gently turn and cook the other side for a further 20 minutes, or until cooked through and golden.

Serve with the crème fraîche and spoonfuls of blackberry jam.
