Original recipe yields 12 scones



  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Sift the flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and sugar into a bowl. Rub in butter until it is in crumb-sized pieces. Make a well in the center and pour in the treacle and milk. Stir into a soft dough. Roll out on a floured surface and cut in to rounds with a biscuit cutter. Place on a baking sheet.
  3. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the bottoms are lightly browned.

Absolutely lovely. I enjoy most things with molasses in it, and this is no exception. I added maybe a 1/4 tsp of pumpkin pie spice, used only 3/4 cup of milk, (otherwise, I think, the dough may have been too soft too roll out) and rolled them out approximately 1/2-inch thick. Recipe made 18 scones, so I think the dough could be rolled out a little thicker, as it doesn't rise in the oven. He-Who-Had-Sleepy-Seeds-in-His-Eyes liked waking up to the aroma of these and greatly enjoyed them with his British tea blend! Thank you, Karen, for this submission. I will be making these again!



These scones were very good. The dough turned out EXACTLY as scone dough should be. I definately reccomend this recipe.



These taste very good and are simple to make. They are almost bread-like, the dough comes out quite soft and a bit elastic. I used granulated sugar because I hadn't any superfine and I didn't know what mixed spice was, so I used pumpkin pie spice. I also put raw sugar on the top before baking. They are good plain, with butter, and with apple butter. I will make these again. They will travel very well.
