    ..and look like a baker's scone?:confused:

    I have been making scones for years, (using my gran's bero recipe book) but they always come out quite hard and don't rise very much. I have tried cheap flour, top of the range flour, margarine, butter, sugar/caster sugar but still no success.

    My dad says his mum's secret was to be as light fingered with the mix as possible, but I still fail

    Any tips/advice?

    And also, is it possible to bung all the ingredients into the sd253 BMaker to mix up the dough?
