Ultramel scones blend the traditional comfort of freshly baked scones with the rich, creamy sweetness of Ultramel, a popular South African custard. This delightful twist not only adds a unique flavor but also ensures the scones are wonderfully moist. Here’s a recipe to create these delicious treats at home.


For the Scones:

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 5 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) cold unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1 cup Ultramel custard (or any vanilla-flavored custard if Ultramel is unavailable)
  • 1/4 cup milk, plus extra for brushing
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Glaze (Optional):

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Ultramel custard
