Baking day

Baking day was today ! Now I'm no great cook, in fact I'm not really keen on cooking. However, sometimes I do like to bake and today was one of those times .
My husband wanted to make scones and I tried to tell him how to make them, but like most men he knew best!
Sad to say they were fit for the bin and I had my "told you so" moment!

I had a found a nice recipe which I thought I would use. This is it if you want to have a go yourself.

Fruit scone

7oz(200g)plain flour
2 tablespoon sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
pinch of salt
6 oz (175 ml ) buttermilk
55g mixed fruit

1.preheat the oven to 425f/220c/gas 7. Grease a baking sheet.
2. Shift the dry ingredients into a bowl. Rub in butter with finger tips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

3. Gradually pour in buttermilk, stirring with a folk to form a soft dough.

4.flour your table and press out dough with your hands. Don't roll as it Knocks the air out.
5.cut out and place on a baking sheet and bake until golden , 12-15 mins.

You can change to cheese scones by dropping the fruit and a wee bit more salt.

Hope you will have a baking day for yourself and give them a go.
