J is for Jam and pure Joy!


Scones with jam and cream are sheer joy! Following on with my cookery challenge I tried out and modified another new recipe this week, infact only yesterday, Monday. From the Hairy Bikers recipe book this was the recipe :-

Ingredients

340g SR flour
pinch salt
85g butter
55g castor sugar
125ml milk
4 tbsp natural yoghurt

Heat oven to 200 c Gas 7

Mix salt in flour
Rub in butter
Add sugar, stir
Add milk & yoghurt
Work until soft dough
Roll and cut into scone shapes
Brush tops with milk

Bake for 10 - 12 minutes

I used vanilla yoghurt and the taste was simply out of this world!
Add strawberry jam & cream!
So easy but the taste, sheer sheer JOY!

  1. Omigosh! Those look so yummy! I remember having "tea" with a lovely lady in Chipping Somethingorother (near Broadway) when my g'friend Cathy & I were in England in '97. She had a beautiful home and garden that went way back into the hills where sheep grazed. We sat on the patio and had a proper high tea with scones, Devon cream, jam, and cakes. Because we're not used to that here, we didn't even need any dinner. :D

  9. Got your comment Denise, never received message I'm afraid. I'm on annual leave until 6th April - if it's urgent send an email to my private email address and I'll see what I can do.

    Cheers

  15. Sounds wonderful! I must try making these though I'm not much good at baking. I can imagine the vanilla yoghourt really adding to the flavour. I love vanilla yoghourt, especially home-made. Mmm, my mouth is watering.

  16. I don't do scones. I love them, but every time I've tried to make them myself they end up looking like scookies (a mix between a scone and a cookie). So, now I just buy them in the tea shops.

  18. Oh, jam! Looks wonderful! I love scones and can make quite good ones, if I say so myself. I personally love them with blackcurrant jam and philly. Mmmm!

  20. Oh my goodness. I just said to Barry last night, "I just feel like something really nice to eat" and he said,"What sort of something nice?" I stopped to think, and then said "How about a scone, thick with cream and strawberry jam!" Now lo and behold there it is. Yummy, yummy!

  21. P.S. If you want to do it the lazy man's way, over here in the States, I buy Bisquix and add sugar and sometimes raisins. Almost as good as from scratch -- but definitely not as good as Denise's.

  23. Oh, you are doing my diet no good at all! I would choose raspberry jam, but I'll manage with strawberry if necessary. :)
