experimenting with scones
my first batch was a disaster. not quite, but it tasted nothing like the scones in Winter Warmers.
it's usually our housemaid who gets the biggest sharing of whatever i bake.
For my first batch of scones that did not raise properly ( should have let it raise longer since it was raining) so mum told the maid
' this is English scones!! its suppose to taste like that! ( with the flour still uncooked in the middle, a taste that resembles cappatti)
my second batch, i used the recipe Phey Yee recommended=) Strawberry Sunrise Scones substituting milk with yoghurt and orange zest.
(mum to maid : " this time its French scone!!')
bah. its always nice to have someone who has no idea what a scone should taste like.
i think it would have tasted nicer if we didnt subsititute half the white sugar with brown sugar. mum say its just nice for her since its not sweet. the strawberries werent sweet at all=( i think it become soggy after being baked together with the scones, maybe should try freezing the strawberries next time.
nevermind, mum likes it and i think it looks nice, going to try again!
