I made a loverly breakfast the other morning. I looked up a recipe for le scones the night before, and my good friends they actually came out quite good! Yes, I was finally able to bake something that actually cooked through.
I thought they were going to be little things, so I was thinking I would have a bunch of sides to each with it. Veggies etc. I ddidnt know. Then I looked in the over and saw it poofed up.
O.O wow...poofy, no?
Seeing how big it actually was (recipe serves 12) I just had some cherries and warm coco - nesquik + Silk style. mmm
its a healthy recipe too. (Can't forget that "healthy" bit when searching for goodies). So instead of cream and 5 sticks of butter that apparently some recipes call for.. weird...the healthy recipes only call for one tablespoon. Why so much butter people?
this was a simple recipe that I made a few changes.
one cup white flour
one cup whole wheet flour (my change, based on another recipe I saw)
one cup nonfat Yogurt
1/4 cup honey (my change)
dash of salt
one tsp baking soda
one tsp baking power
2 tblspoon olive oil
one tbspn butter
-then add what you want as in, this recipe was for orange raisin scones. but I tossed in blueberries and cherries instead. oh yeah and I added a little vanilla and cinemon.
mix dry ingreidents in one bowl
in another bowl mix the wet ingreidents (+ zest). Melt butter and pour in. Once its all mixed up pour into dry mix, stir just until everythings combine. A lot of the recipes I read kept saying not to mix it too much just enough to mix it all up. (maybe to keep it light?)
put it all ontp baking sheet and spread it out into a 1/2 inch circle. Take a knife (I got the knife wet so It wouldnt stick to the dough) and cut it into 12 peices - basically I'm thinking this is to get the lines so you can see where to cut when their done. GIve it that scone shape. tee hee I wanted that! The scone shape. lol
I dont know if scones are supposed to taste like muffins but mine was more of a biscut. Some say they put butter or jam on it, so I think that I had teh right flavour going. lol Everyone liked them too. woop!
heres the link to the recipe I used in case I forgot to mention something.http://health.yahoo.com/topic/nutrition/breakfast/recipe/ciaprochef/orange-raisin_scones;_ylt=AvkGiqtY9QTcp3M6.8i5pljVtcUF
