Thermomix Buttermilk Scones

The Queen is currently in Australia so Thermomix in Australia posted a scone recipe in their Customer Newsletter.

Spot of tea, anyone? To celebrate the reigning monarch’s visit, bake some scones! There is nothing better than freshly baked scones served with jam and whipped cream, accompanied by a pot of your favourite tea.

Buttermilk Scones

440g self-raising flour, plus extra for dusting
2 tbsp caster sugar
Pinch salt
60g butter, chopped
380g buttermilk
Jam and whipped cream to serve


1. Pre-heat oven to 220°C. Grease and flour an 8cm x 19cm (base) cake pan.

2. Place flour, sugar, salt and butter into mixing bowl and mix for 5 sec/speed 8, or until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

3. Add buttermilk and mix for 5 sec/speed 5 or until dough almost comes together.

4. Mix for 20 sec/closed lid position/Interval speed to form a soft and slightly sticky dough.

5. Place mixture on a lightly floured surface and press out to a 3cm thick round.

6. Dip a 5cm round cutter into flour to prevent dough sticking.

7. Cu t scones out and gently press leftover dough pieces together and repeat to make a total of 12-14 scones.

8. Place scones, touching, in prepared pan. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until light golden brown and hollow sounding when tapped on top.

9. Serve with jam and whipped cream.

Strawberry Jam

500g strawberries, washed and hulled
Zest and flesh of 1 lemon
250-300g sugar

1. Place all ingredients into mixing bowl and cook for 35 min/100°C/speed 1 or until desired consistency is achieved.

2. Pour into sterilised jars and seal immediately.

General tips
1. If a thicker consistency is desired, use jam setter or natural pectin obtainable
from health food shops.

2. Sprinkle some sugar over the strawberries and leave them in the refrigerator
overnight. Drain off the liquid the next day and proceed with the recipe above.

    Hi! I was wondering if you can use frozen strawberries for the jam.
    I’m definitely trying the scones!

    Thanks! It’s almost winter here in Canada so finding fresh berries is a challenge!

    Hi Simone,
    I was making Thermomix Butter today and wanted to use the buttermilk that was left over. Googled Buttermilk and found you and your lovely right royal recipe. Fresh scones, home made butter and a slice of good cheese. What a lovely afternoon tea, fit for a Queen. Or a happy Sydney house wife.
    Thank you

    I just made your Buttermilk scones, I decided to use 3/4 S.R wholemeal and make 1/2 into cheese/chives.
    The plain scones were definitely the better ones, seemed like the cheese/chives were a bit doughy, think it may have been the cheese which made them like that, but will def be making the plain ones again with the S.R flour. I also used home made therm jam – it was awesome :-)
