When the scone gets into your mouth...

I've made this scone a few times already since after I saw the recipe together with its pic in a friend's blog (thanks drNO). The first time I saw Chef Wan baking it on TV a few years back, I was just too lazy to jot down the recipe. But after I found out that ingredients are the things within my grasp in the kitchen, I baked it right away. So, here's the recipe to share with...


* 3 cups all-purpose flour
* 1/2 cup white sugar
* 5 teaspoons baking powder
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1/2 cup butter
* 1 egg, beaten
* milk


-Preheat oven to 200 degrees C. Lightly grease a baking sheet.
-In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in butter, until resembles breadcrumbs (the easiest way, is doing this step in a food processor).
-Mix the egg and milk in a small bowl, and stir into flour mixture until moistened.
-Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead briefly. Roll dough out into a 1/2 inch thick round. Cut into 8 wedges, and place on the prepared baking sheet.
-Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown.

*You can add in choc chips, raisins, nuts or anything that you like.

So, the second time I baked it, I addded in choc chips upon request from of course the kids and the other half of the dough, I added in peanut butter to fulfil hubby's request. As for me, I prefer the plain one.

Along helped me out but she was so creative enough to come up with a gingerbread-man shape instead...he he.

Whatever it is, this has been our family's favourite ever since, after the pancake. We love the taste...hhmmm..

Looks good Ziela. If I were to do this, I would be the only one yang kasi abis sumer! I did cream custard caramel the other day and believe it or not 5 bekas I abiskan. My kids ni tak brp suke benda yang I suker. Azam, toksah ckp la.

Thanks for sharing. Will try it one day.

drNO: Haven't tried that one with butter n jam but will try soon he he. My hubby likes the plain one spread with peanut butter.

Wiz: Looks good but I'm sure it will look beter if u bake it...tangan pro kan. As for me, klu my kids n esp hubby tak makan I tak rajin nak buat. Kira u ni mmg rajin, buat dessert makan sorang pun jadi.
