What Are You Cooking?

Well,

 

All you are really trying to do with scones is have something that is quick to make, rather pleasant with strawberry jam and cream but really does need to be eaten fresh , they most certainly do not keep.

 

I'll eat them, not at all sure I can be bothered to make them.

 

Cinnamon rolls, though... Now you're talking  🙂

Scones predate baking powder, and were originally baked on a stove, not in an oven.  I guess the definition is fairly flexible.

 

Whipped or clotted cream, and jam, is too much effort, tho'.  So I want something that tastes nice on its own, as well as with savoury or sweet condiments.

Afternoon Cottage Garden Teas are all  the rage around here at the moment - have been for a while, warm scones, fresh home-made strawberry jam and clotted cream does make for a relaxing afternoon.

 

Another alternative might be Cheese Scones ?

 

Cheers

I'm not really a massive fan of scones, but I did love them each time I visited Exeter, Devon.

Tea and fresh scones in the countryside, pretty damn tasty.

That's rather close to my old home town, or rather where I grew up.

 

Indeed, it is some thing very English but the locals here do a good job of emulating it.

 

Cheers
