Sunday Scones @ Sunday, October 06, 2013
Sunday 29th Sept
A study day with le beau, not the same as a study date. We pretty much spent the morning doing the hardest project I've ever done while he did some lesson planning. Come Tuesday 6am and I'm still working on it - it's due at 4.30pm - and I hope the power doesn't go out before then! It's very windy and stormy, lights went out x3 last night.
We made scones! No longer are they a thing reserved just for high tea. I've been meaning to make these for a while, more than a month actually, but procrastination stepped in. As the others were out to brunch we put most in the freezer. I put them in the oven then went for a 15min nap - 8 hours later... they were done. Baked at 175c for 15 minutes.
Someone ate all the strawberry jam! That is like eating all the icing/frosting for the cake! Oh well she didn't know. So we had blueberry jam instead, and served it with Chantilly Cream I made god knows when (its been living in the freezer) doesn't taste the same not fresh sadly.
We loved these and will be making them again and again on a variation. Quick and easy to make, with ingredients we all have already at home. They taste exactly the same when baked after being defrosted.
450g plain flour, sifted
100g caster sugar (we used vanilla sugar)
100g butter, room temp
1 egg (don't put this in with the milk)
Notes - Freezing It
Don't paint if you're going to freeze it.
Served with cream & jam.
Do you have a favourite scone recipe or way to serve them?
