The Country Women's Association broke the world record for the largest
scone in Sydney on September 9.
CWA bakes up record
Members make world's largest scone
A DEDICATED team of CWA
members has smashed the world
record for the largest scone.
The women, who included Canberra
CWA members, were thrilled when
their scone tipped the scales at 178kg
in Sydney on September 9. The
previous record of 121kg was held by
a town in New Zealand.
Canberra branch president Barbara
Skein helped make the enormous treat
and said it was a wonderful moment
when the record was broken, but the
likelihood of doing something similar
again was slim.
"We're never going to do it again,"
she said. "If anyone wants to try and
beat it, let them."
The idea to break the world record
came about as a way of promoting
CWA Awareness Day last week. "If
we had an attempt at the Guinness
World Record for the world's largest
scone it would make people stand up
and take notice," Ms Skein said.
There was about four weeks of
preparation before the scone was
cooked, including testing various reci-
pes and cooking methods.
A trial run was conducted at Kelso
High School in Bathurst and a special-
ly designed 58kg cake tin and camp
oven was tested.
The scone didn't cook properly in
the middle and was burnt around the
edges, so it was back to the drawing
board to figure out what needed to
change. After some configuration and
alteration of the oven, the ladies rolled
up their sleeves and began preparing
the ingredients for the final attempt.
About 111kg of flour was used,
along with sugar, milk and butter, and
it sat cooking for 13 hours.
In order to break the world record, it
had to be cooked in the middle and had
to be taken out of the tin properly.
When that was achieved and it was
weighed, Ms Skein said everyone
jumped around with excitement as they
knew they had it.
She said the scone had a similar taste
to damper, and it had a nice texture but
was soft on the inside. It was taken to
Cowra to be placed on display at a
local show, but Ms Skein wasn't sure
where it was going after that.
