(Plain scones on left, ginger beer scones on right)
Sadly, it’s back to school tomorrow, so I’m off to double check supplies. I’ll leave you with the blog-checking lines and scone photos.
Audax Artifex was our January 2012 Daring Bakers’ host. Aud worked tirelessly to master light and fluffy scones (a/k/a biscuits) to help us create delicious and perfect batches in our own kitchens!
I made the challenge recipe which yielded delightfully buttery scones (go to Audax’s blog for incredibly detailed instructions on pursuing the perfect scone). Since scones are so quick and easy, I threw in a batch of ginger beer scones as well, based on Belinda Jeffery’s lemonade scones (find an adapted version of the recipe at Lemonpi). I used ginger beer and crystallised ginger, and skipped the wholemeal flour.
this tune. Why? Because I could) ;)
Give me a scone with lots of jam please
That’s just the bees knees
A bite or two, oh will that do?
We’ll need more for a snack
Bring some more to the front
And we’ll promise to share.
Forgot to mention - the plain scones were layered, and the ginger beer scones kneaded, which gave the "innards" a different look.
See you soon! Malaysian Monday will be slightly late I think :)
