1 Preheat oven to 180°C. Sift flour in a bowl. Add soda water, evaporated milk and honey, and stir gently until just combined into a soft dough.
2 Turn dough onto a board. Don’t overwork it, or scones will be heavy. Gently pat dough into an even thickness. Cut in squares, or use a cutter to make rounds.
3 Bake for 10-15 minutes, until risen and golden on top. Serve warm with jam.

- Ingredient : Evaporated milk, evaporated soy milk
- For date and lemon scones, omit the honey, and add 3/4 cup chopped dates and zest of 1 lemon. Glaze the top of the scones with a mix of leftover evaporated milk and honey.
- For tasty savoury scones, use 3/4 cup evaporated milk and 250ml lite beer. Add 2 tablespoons grated parmesan and 1/4 cup grated edam cheese.
If you have a pizza cutter, use this to divide the dough for your scones. It works perfectly and makes for nice, light, high scones.
