stopping by for a scone

Hi!

Can't chat, am actually working tonight (for Amazon book money!) so better get back to the numbers and thought I'd leave you with a snack. 

Morning tea (or afternoon).

Fresh scones with butter and jam. Does it get any better?

I think this recipe may be my Nan's. Or Grandma's. Unsure of origin. Have made these so many times this may be the first time I've written it down. 

Champion Scones!

INGREDIENTS

3 cups self raising flour (I use wholemeal or unbleached)

About a tbsp sugar

Approx 80g butter

1 cup milk

METHOD:

Mix the flour and the sugar then rub in the butter. Stir through the milk. Knead, and cut into scone-like shapes (scone cutters are good for this.)

Cook on about 210 for about 15-20 mins or until golden on top. 

That's it. 

I actually like it better than this recipe because I don't have to remember to buy lemonade. 

Unsure if scones work with gluten-free flour, for the gluten-free readers? Anybody?

Better get to it! (Motivated by this book on my Amazon list which isn't in any of the libraries around me!)

See you tomorrow.

Fi, you taught me this years ago, don’t know if you remember, but I’ve wowed some people with it! Thanks.

But nothing works with the bloody awful gluten-free flour in the UK. Not that I’m a baker. Have found a decent g/f pizza base packet mix- you add yeast, eggs, etc, so it actually feels like real cooking. And Dave eats it.

Would love wisdom/recommendations from anyone else over here?

love that book by the way… read it and posted about it recently…. My library has the older version rather than the recently released one..

Yep – I second that. GF flour persistently makes crap scones. I’ve given up. And I’ve just been sent that book (all WA Playgroups got sent a complimentary copy – and I’m the local groups rep. Haven’t read it yet though – will let you know)

Hi honey. Please work hard so you can buy that book so I can borrow it 🙂 And, does this mean you might like to come camping with us soon?? Are you ready for it (ie. with darling Ivy), say Easter next year??

For some reason my scones always fail. I gave up a few years ago after making too many batches of hard scones. I’ll give these a go. Thanks. x t.
