Friday, 6th April 2012Easter Friday and I have no hot-cross buns! So I baked scones instead. Wow, it's ages since I baked anything and I'm not sure I have ever done scones.
These were according to my Mother's recipe, which is basically just a list of ingredients. 10 oz flour, 2 oz butter, 1oz lard, sugar, 1 egg, milk, water. I did a half quantity, added sultanas and used cream instead of milk (because that is what I had). The tops look glossy because I had a half an egg left over to glaze then with.
Delicious! Really light and fluffy. Just like Mum makes!
