I really love to bake. Doesn't matter if its sweet or savoury. Making pies, tarts, breads, scones or biscuits just to name a few, make's me smile.
There is also nothing better than putting a smile on someone else's face. If your looking for a baked good thank you for someone, these scones would be it. They are delicious plain or devonshire style with jam, cream, and a great cup of tea. So easy and quick to make, and a little bit impressive, studded with fresh strawberries, vanilla beans and little white chocolate bits.
A great morning tea to have on hand, scones freeze really well. Lets hope that most of these actually make it too the freezer. Not like the last time I baked and made a carrot loaf, with the soul purpose of freezing some slices!!
2 cups flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoons vanilla sugar
2/3 cup buttermilk
40grams butter melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
6 large strawberries chopped roughly
1-2 tablespoons white chocolate chips
preheat the oven to very hot 220C. Have a lightly floured bench also ready.
Put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix quickly by hand. Add more buttermilk if needed. Just bring the dough together, DO NOT OVER MIX.
Roughly roll out into a log and cut scone into 8 pieces. Place in a baking tray and brush with buttermilk.
Bake for 12-15 minutes.
Just bring the mixture together and turn it out onto the bench. Then bring it into a dough, and cut into 8 pieces.
Again another successful batch of scones, I can't believe my luck! I am always tentative making scones. I don't know what the magic is behind it but these were so light and fluffy, and smelled so good.
Of coarse my husband thinks that these would be good without the white chocolate too. What a weirdo! We really had to stop ourselves from eating more of these. The smell was intoxicating.
