Macerated strawberry, mascarpone & ginger syrup scones

Wednesday, 1 November 2023 / Topics:

Ingredients: (Serves 4)

1 cup self-raising flour, plus extra for dusting

pinch of salt

⅓ cup pure cream

⅓ cup lemonade

250g strawberries, halved

¼ cup sparkling Moscato

200g mascarpone

1 teaspoon vanilla bean extract

1 tablespoon honey, plus 2 tablespoons extra

¼ cup water

juice of 1 lemon

thumb-sized piece of ginger, thinly sliced



  • Preheat oven to 200°C (fan-forced). Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  • Sift flour and salt into a medium bowl. Pour in cream and lemonade, then begin to mix into a soft, sticky dough. Turn onto a generously floured work surface. Knead very lightly until just smooth, then press into a 3cm thick disc. Use a 6cm cutter to cut dough into four rounds. Place on the lined baking tray with sides touching. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • Meanwhile, place strawberries in a small bowl. Pour over Moscato and set aside for 5 minutes to macerate.
  • Stir mascarpone, vanilla and one tablespoon honey in a medium bowl until smooth.
  • In a small saucepan, combine water, lemon juice, ginger and remaining two tablespoons honey. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat and cook for 2-3 minutes or until a light syrup forms. Discard ginger prior to serving.
  • Fill scones with mascarpone and macerated strawberries, then drizzle with ginger syrup.
