Scones Recipe // Whip Them Up In 30 Minutes...


If you're a little bit of a baker then it's given that these four ingredients will be in your kitchen already. Before yesterday I had Never made scones! Guess I've been a little scared. I've heard those stories where they have turned out more like rock cakes, or are just so dry that no amount of cream helps you swallow them down. 
So I asked the guru of my baking world (mum!) for a recipe to make some scones because I was about an hour away from walking out my door empty handed to a morning tea with friends, I just hate showing up with nothing and two hungry little piglets in tow. 
Anyway, so not only did it all only take me 30 minutes (that's mixing and cooking time) but they turned out super soft. Teamed them up with the traditional strawberry jam and some whipped cream...OMG so good!! 

INGREDIENTS  

3 Cups self-raising flour
plain flour (for dusting)
100g butter
1 cup milk
Jam and whipped cream, to serve

METHOD 

Preheat oven 200 degrees fan-forced.
Using an electric mixer, place the self-raising flour and butter into the mixer and mix until combined to a crumble texture. 
Next add the milk slowly in small amounts. If you find your mixture is to sticky just add a pinch more flour. 
Now you need to knead the dough. Dust your bench top with some plain flour and knead out the dough, just be careful not to over do it (stop when the dough holds itself together in a ball and is smooth). 
Once your dough is ready, line a baking tray with non-sticky baking paper. Then roll into balls (about 2cm thick) and place on tray. Now gently push all the balls together (like picture above). Sprinkle the tops with a little plain flour.
Place in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until lightly brown and well risen. 
Leave to cool on tray for 5 minutes then turn out onto wire rake. Or serve them up warm with fresh whipped cream and strawberry jam.

  2. I'm drooling looking at those pics Bec. I love a good Devonshire tea complete with scones, jam and cream! My Mum's recipe uses a can of lemonade and they are always light and fluffy. Who would have thought of putting lemonade in?!

Fun With Pom Poms // Lets Make A Cactus...

Seriously! How much fun are pom-poms? It doesn't matter if you're five or eighty two it's something you can make and once you've mastered the basic pom-pom you'll be able to knock this bad boy up in no time.

You're going to need a few things...
One medium sized green pom-pomOne small sized pink pom-pomOne medium sized brown pom-pomScissors Glue (I highly recommend using a hot glue gun, much easier and less messy).Cardboard egg container (to use one cup section as the cacti's little pot). Some Paint (I used gold spray paint).


Firstly cut and trim one egg cup section from the carton. Paint your egg cup container 'Pot' and leave it to dry. It should be dry by the time you have finished cutting your cactus into shape.

Make your three different pom-poms in the colours and sizes needed. (Make sure you leave the tied pom-pom strings through the centre of the pom-poms long, you'll need these to tie your pink and green pom-poms together).
