Just to add to the confusion, here in NZ we also have Girdle (griddle)
scone. Now I would think that the scones we have here are of English
origin. Anyway, as promised here are a couple of scone recipes, the
sort typically made by every NZ housewife.
3 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
50g (2 ounces) butter
1 to 1 1/2 cups milk
Sift dry ingredients. Rub in butter. Add milk and quickly mix t a
soft dough with a knife. Turn out on a floured board. Pat into shape
about 3/4 inch thick. Cut into scquares (or use a biscuit cutter and
cut into circles about 2 1/2 inches across. Place on a cold tray and
put in a hot (450F, 230C) oven for 10-15 minutes till golden brown.
Split and butter and add jam,jam and whipped cream, or jelly or honey,
golden syrup, or Vegemite (yay) or just have with the butter alone.
