Mayonnaise is what gives these scones a light fluffy texture. They only require four ingredients; flour, sugar, milk and mayonnaise. Serve with butter and jam.
What happened? I followed the directions EXACTLY. Mine would not come out of their paper liners. I should have just greased the muffin tin I guess. I'm new at this cooking thing and that's why I tried this simple recipe. We did manage to eat the tops which were fluffy and delicious. However, half of them were wasted. Did I do something wrong again? - 29 Sep 2008
Was pleasantly surprised by this recipe. I replaced milk with buttermilk and just greased the muffin cups instead of lining them. I took them to a last minute dinner party and got rave reviews over them. Great warm with butter. I will make these again. - 29 Sep 2008
