Argh! I know! its been waay too long!!
Im sorry. I really dont have much of an excuse except life is just. so.busy!
But with school holidays now only a week away for us here, I thought Id get some of the cool things we've been doing lately up so you will have some great things to do!
A few weeks ago, someone somewhere posted something ( I know, Im really helpful with that bit) about Lemonade Scones. Ppft, really?? How would that work?? But with Amahli begging me to cook something, I googled and found a recipe and thought Id give it a go :)
Oh. My. These simple little bites of not alot are absolutely AMAZING.
And heres how you make em ;)
1 cup of Lemonade ( dont think it matters what type)
1 cup of cream
3 cups Self Raising Flour
milk to brush top
Now, the recipe for me said heat the oven to 220 degrees, but for my fan forced oven it was WAY too hot. Mine is now set to about 170c ( about the same for a cake or slice) and thats perfect.
put flour in a bowl, add cream and lemonade. Stir till only just combined ( dont over stir)
Tip out that sweet smelling lump of gloop onto a floured board and combine. ( this helped with my playdough withdrawals today.... so therapeutic!)
Once all combined, you can roll it out till its semi flat. mine looks fairly "rustic" but I dont care.
You can then cut out circles with a cutter ( although my cutter is in the playdough so I just cut mine into rectangles) or shape how you like.
Pop into the oven for about 10-15 minutes and prepare to be amazed.......
Or better still... find a neighbouring park and take a picnic!!
