Our expert says:
Scones are indeed yummy, and the basic recipe which uses 2 cups of flour, a pinch of salt, 2-4 tablespoons of butter or margarine, 1 cup of milk (use low-fat or fat-free milk), plus 4 teaspoons of baking powder, will not produce a high energy food. How fattening scones are, depends on 2 things: a) How many you eat per day and b) what you add to the scones??? If you serve the scones with butter, lashings of jam and cream, and eat 6 a day, they will contribute to weight gain. If you ration yourself to one scone a day with a scraping of butter and jam on 'treat' days, then this should not hamper your weightloss.
