For these little ‘gems’ you need the special irons that have been part of Australia’s cooking scene for generations. Country cooks treasure them: many are passed from mother to daughter. You can use small patty tins instead, heating them in the oven first.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
30g butter
2 tablespoons sugar
1 egg
pinch salt
125ml milk
150g self-raising flour

Method

  1. Heat gem scone irons in a preheated hot oven (200°C). Cream butter with sugar. Add egg, salt and milk and combine with creamed mixture. Sift flour and fold lightly into mixture until blended.
  2. Grease hot irons well, then spoon mixture in to three-quarters fill each cup. Bake in hot oven for 10–15 minutes. Serve warm with butter.
