I found a new love….
This is from Black, the coffee joint at Triple one Somerset.
I guess its the way it compliments a cup of tea in the lazy afternoon,
the way its texture enhances the hot tea, the secret sweetness that comes from the dried fruits in it…
Throw in a good read…
I enjoy life this way, how about you?
Recipe from BBC:
Scones are the easiest English teatime treat. There’s scope to customise these sweet ones with dried fruit or cinnamon.
- Heat the oven to 220C/425F/Gas 7. Lightly grease a baking sheet.
- Mix together the flour and salt and rub in the butter.
- Stir in the sugar and then the milk to get a soft dough.
- Turn on to a floured work surface and knead very lightly. Pat out to a round 2cm/¾in thick. Use a 5cm/2in cutter to stamp out rounds and place on a baking sheet. Lightly knead together the rest of the dough and stamp out more scones to use it all up.
- Brush the tops of the scones with the beaten egg. Bake for 12-15 minutes until well risen and golden.
- Cool on a wire rack and serve with butter and good jam and maybe some clotted cream.
