Scones always please, and this recipe from the Camps Australia Wide Community Cookbook  contributed by Susan Edwards. She has made seven batches of these in her caravan oven for her Tuggerah Lakes Caravan Club members. She served up damper with golden syrup and cream; scones, jam and cream plus date scones served with butter. They must live up to their name! In the book, Susan suggests more additions for savoury options, tell us why she loves to free camp and gives her favourite ‘must do’ experience in Australia – The Horizontal Falls (which we feature in this newsletter!).
