In this week’s Sasko and Prestige best recipe series, Lerato Lusilee, a stay-at-home-mom who loves baking shares her recipe for cinnamon scones.

Says Lerato: “I chose to share this simple receipt because of the memories it brings – winter holidays, and sitting with my siblings next to a coal stove, My mom loved baking and we used to enjoy cinnamon scones, cinnamon biscuits, cinnamon pumpkins, cinnamon everything! That explains my addiction to cinnamon.

The best tips I ever got from my mom when it comes to making scones are:

– Keep everything cold – I even freeze my butter.

– Don’t overwork the dough

– Always use a sharp cutter or knife to cut the scones.



1 cup Inkomasi(sour cream)

1 teaspoon salt

4 cups sasko cake flour

1 cup butter, cut into cubes

1 cup white sugar

1 egg

3 teaspoons baking powder

1 cup raisins

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon mixed spice


Preheat the oven to 180C.

Mix all dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl.(Raisins included)

Mix in the butter until it resembles breadcrumbs.

Mix the egg and sour cream in a jug then pour into dry ingredients – the mixture should be soft but not sticky.

Roll out the mixture, and cut out scones using a sharp scone cutter.

Bake for  20-25 minutes.
