Farm Nanna’s Easy Plain Scones Recipe

Farm Nanna's Easy Plain Scones Recipe - Simple & easy scone recipe with lactose free alternative.

One of the greatest memories I have of my grandmother, or Farm Nanna as we used to call her, was her amazing cooking. Whenever we went to the farm to visit her and Farm Poppy she always put on a magnificent feast of corned beef, mashed potato and pumpkin, a mountain of vegetables and even dessert which always included custard and a treat – and this was just for lunch! There are many things I wish she had been able to teach me, before she left this world, like her flower art, her knitting, crafts, and other-world skills that seem to be disappearing in today’s society but the one thing she did leave us with were a few of her amazing recipes.

This scones recipe is probably one of the easiest I have seen, and they taste AMAZING. I am actually letting you in on an award winning recipe as myself and my sisters regularly won the cooking section as kids with these yummy scones at the local Marburg Show (see the post about the cutest agricultural show ever here). I know, it’s a big deal! But seriously you don’t need to just trust me, give this recipe a go. It takes no time and you won’t be disappointed with these fluffy and light tasty treats.

The photos in this post were taken when having a picnic at my local country show, so please enjoy the rustic vibe of the setting (as well as the mouth-watering scones).

The images supplied are actually using this recipe but lactose free with the use of Zymil Lactose Free Thickened Cream. This cream really doesn’t thicken when whipped, like normal thickened cream, but is a great alternative to the lactose intolerant amongst us.

    Strawberry jam, cream and scones are my guilty pleasure. Although I don’t drink tea, these scones are an irish afternoon tea staple. I’ve got to try these to bring a little taste of home to Georgia 🙂

      I am totally with you Amy, however I do love a cuppa tea to go along with them. I definitely feel you need to bring some Irish afternoon tea to Georgia for sure. 🙂
