Basic scones


I am not complaining.. i am not complaining BUT grrrrr after using netbook for years.. i am back using a notebook.. yes yes its bigger and i will need to do some adjustment.. no longer lightweight netbook for when i travel and urghhhh look at all my watermarks.. its hideously ugly... blueeekkk I cant wait to see changes that will be done to my blog.. I am not complaining OK! ahaks

So ok hb got me a new notebook.. its in white (suci gitew haha) and its huge.. part of me.. come to mama notebook.. another part of me.. i hate going thru the same routine of getting to know a new lappy.. just like when someone gets a divorce and falls in love again.. err i know it cos i hv experienced it muahahahaaa


After our Beijing trip.. we hv been out and abt eventho its been raining non stop here.. we did take Sonia to the zoo yesterday and spent half of our day there.. got home and right after Sonia's nap we took her out again.. i hv been eating Indian bee hoon goreng for the past two days.. see i told ya i missed eating my fav local food hehe and hv been trying not to eat rice.. i lost like 3kg while in Beijing and if possible i dont want to gain it back.. read me.. IF POSSIBLE yah hehehe

This morning i had this ugly craving of having scones for brekkie and u know how it is between me and scones.. i just loveeeeeeeeee creamy scones.. the craving got worse after i kept on thinking of Miss Marple's Tearoom Devonshire scones.. sooo the first thing i did today was to prepare it.. i ran out of double cream as the bakery supply shop that i went to last night was closed due to public hols..whipped up a simple recipe that uses milk and voila.. i got what i craved for... cranberry scones!



Ingredients
plain flour, for dusting
3 cups self-raising flour
80g butter, cubed - i used scs unsalted butter and added 1tsp of salt
1 to 1 1/4 cups milk - i used 1 1/4 cups of milk
1/2 cup of dried cranberries
jam and whipped cream, to serve

Method
Preheat oven to 200°C. Lightly dust a flat baking tray with plain flour. Sift self-raising flour into a large bowl.
Using your fingertips, rub butter into flour until mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add cranberries. Make a well in the centre. Add 1 cup of milk. Mix with a flat-bladed knife until mixture forms a soft dough, adding more milk if required. Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently until smooth (don't knead dough too much or scones will be tough).
Pat dough into a 2cm-thick round. Using a 5cm (diameter) round cutter, cut out 12 rounds. Press dough together and cut out remaining 4 rounds. Place scones onto prepared baking tray, 1cm apart. Sprinkle tops with a little plain flour (i brushed milk and sprinkle a little sugar). Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden and well risen. Transfer to a wire rack. Serve warm with jam and cream.



So how abt baking urself scones to go along with ur cup of hot tea and pretending ur on Mt Dandenong hahaha.. thats me.. right now! ahaks - a woman can only dream huhu

By the way... good scones should go with good jam... when buying commercially made jam, what I like a lot and I usually get it from TESCO in Malaysia... are the SCHWARTAU branded jams.. goes well with scones and croissants as well as just on normal bread... (the best in my opinion is the wild berry jam)...
