The bane of my existence. I don't often do the baking thing, mostly for the sake of the size of my backside, as I am unable to resist any sort of home baked good. The kids
do like get VERY excited it when I bake (poor souls), but the reason for this domestic fling is that it is a pre-requisite to provide a decent smoko for any workers.
Today being such a day that workers will need to be catered for, I made some scones for smoko. Ideally scones are best made the same morning they are to be served, but seeing as I cannot be in two places at once (ie I will be out in the paddock during the morning!) I've whipped these up yesterday afternoon.
This recipe has been around for awhile, but I thought I would share my version of it.
|4 cups SR Flour|
|300ml lemonade *|
|Mix altogether in a bowl until combined, then knead gently on floured surface. Roll out to around 3cm in thickness and then cut with scone cutters. Place touching on a greased (and floured if feeling excited) tray and bake for around 15 minutes at 250 Celsius|
* my recipe says a whole can, but I always end up having to add more flour, so I cut back on the lemonade this time.
I had a small bit of dough left over, so made a sort of jam turnover thing for the kids to have at school.
