I was very, very proud of myself this week because...
I made scones.
For some reason, I have always been scared of scones. They seemed on a par with sponge cakes and pavlovas. In the realm of the experts at the CWA who had perfected the art over many many years.
I actually laughed at myself when I realised how easy they were. This recipe was given to me by my new friend Susannah (who has, by the way, just started her own very cool blog - head on over for a visit!). As usual I had some willing helpers and in no time at all (seriously!!) we had a batch of scones on the table and in even less time than that - all were gone - delicious!!
EASY PEASY SCONES
3 cups SR flour
1 cup lemonade (or even soda water)
1 cup cream
I'm not exactly sure on the correct way to make scones, but I just mixed the ingredients together, rolled them into balls (using some extra flour on the bench & on hands) and popped them onto a small lightly greased (& slightly floured) tray. Then into a 200 degree celcius oven for around 10 mins (depending on size of scones).
I notice that my friend Sonia from Lioness Lady also uses the exact same recipe. I'm onto a winner and I encourage you to give it a go! Next I'm going to experiment with adding extra ingredients like ham and cheese or raisins & the like, as they may just work in lunchboxes! If you haven't yet, please check out this post and share your lunchbox tips! I need all the variety I can get!
