Dutch Oven Scones

Scones are an ideal recipe to start with when learning to bake in a Dutch oven. The recipe is fairly simple so you can focus on learning temperature control.

Scones are common for morning or afternoon tea served with jam and butter. This version is the style often associated with the queen, English high teas, and Australian smokos.

The ease of making them means they transition to the camping environment easily. The use of a Dutch oven creates a brown base and them being cooked all the way through although sometimes a paler top compared to a normal oven. 

Ingredients

50g butter

2 cups self raising flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

200ml milk

Equipment

12 inch Dutch oven

Recipe Directions

  1. Preheat the Dutch oven to 190 degrees C (375 degrees F).

  2. Rub the butter with your fingertips into the flour and salt to form a breadcrumb type texture.

  3. Add enough milk into the flour to form a light dough.

  4. Turn the dough out onto a floured board and gently knead just until dough comes together. Cut out round scones.

  5. Sprinkle flour on the bottom of the preheated Dutch oven to prevent sticking. Arrange the scones evenly over the base of the Dutch oven. Brush the tops with additional milk.

  6. To heat your Dutch oven to 190 degrees C (375 degrees F):
