Default Scone recipe for working mums

Staff of a local organisation had their annual "scone off"
competition recently. The winning entry was a "savoury scone" with a
bit of chili etc -- not what *I* would call a real scone, but I wasn't
there to disqualify it. :-)

The recipe that appealed to me was so simple it was absurd. The admin
officer who "created" it justified it on the basis "Working mums need
to do things easily and quickly." It didn't win, but I might even try
it out if I ever get a working oven again.

So, what's this secret recipe? As told to me _en passant_ in the
corridors of power, so to speak:

Ingredients:
3 cups self raising flower
1 can Campbells pumpkin soup.

Method:
Mix ingredients. Divide into convenient bits and space out on tray.
Bake until done.

Result:
A harvest of pumpkin scones!

(If Flo was dead she would be turning in her grave! Come to think of
it, if she hears about this she'll probably hand in her chips!)

Cheers, Phred.

I think what's meant is "self-rising flour" -- it contains a leavening agent
(baking powder, I think, but may also have baking soda) and salt. Bisquik
of course also has that, but also has fat (I think in the form of
shortening, but may be oil).

But what's Campbell's pumpkin soup? I've never seen it. Is it sweet or
savory?

Self rising flour is on the shelf next to the all purpose but you can
make your own

How To Make Self-Rising Flour

1. Using a dry measure, measure the desired amount of flour into a
separate container.

2. For each cup of all-purpose flour, add 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking
powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt.

3. Mix to combine.

I'm not sure that they sell it in the U.S. -- if you search the
Campbell's web site, they don't mention it at all. All the cites
I've seen in this thread are for Oz...

Proof that crappy cooking isn't exclusively American.

(If Flo was dead she would be turning in her grave! Come to think of
it, if she hears about this she'll probably hand in her chips!)


What? You know someone named Flo who actually has standards when it
comes to cooking?

Cheers, Phred.

If you haven't heard of Flo in relation to pumpkin scones you're
hopelessly out of your depth in this thread. Where do we send
flowers?

Oh, absolutely! Seems like a strange thing to have on the store
shelves -- I wonder if they really sell that much..?
