Sejarah Scone dalam Hidupku...

Kelakar sebenarnye sejarah scone ni..

Camni ceritanye...ceh cakap omputih la plak..kih kih..before i got married..i have read scone recipes dozen of times...but looking at its shape n texture... i was always hesitant to even try to bake it..dlam hati selalu ckp.."isshhh sedap ke scone nih..."

i cant remember when...but my 1st try on scones..really proved my theory that scones was just a plain thick biscuit which were hard and take a long time to finish..plus asyik lekat2 kat gigi je...(leceh betull)

ok...then i put scones far away out of my life...untillll one day, mama (my MIL) bought scones..i was at my in-laws house that time..ok, memula tgk scone tuh..alamak..sconee laaa..aihhh...camner nih..mama dah offer suro makan..camne nihhh....sekali tgk mama makan camner..lerrrrr camniii rupanye makan scone...

KAH KAH KAH KAH KAH KAH....  Ya Allah ape ke mendenye laaaa suriani ooooiiii...rupanye kau tak tau makan scone camner... hahahahahahahahah
patutla dulu mkn scone lambat nk abis...rupanye scone kene potong separuh, toast kan n sapu ngan butter/jam...to counter the plain taste of the scone itself...lerrr dulu aku pegi bantai makan camtu jeeehhh... tulaaa org suro belaja dulu camner nk makan x nakk...amende laa suriani...

and after that incident...i have love scone since and made dozen of scones here in perth..and for that intriguing experience..i would like to share with you my scone recipe..

Oat Scone

1 1/2   cup plain flour
3/4     cup oat flakes
1 tbsp  baking powder
1/4     cup sugar (either normal sugar we eat/refined sugar)
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup cold butter (but into cubes) - meaning just come out of fridge
1/4 cup thickend cream(or just ordinary cream will do)
2       eggs (beaten)
1/2 cup raisins (i didnt put any)

1. Combine flour, oat flakes,baking powder, salt and sugar in a food processor. Blend for a minute. add butter and blend again until it resembles a coarse breadcrumbs (serbuk roti kasar). Leave the mixture in the processor.

2. In another bowl, combine eggs and cream.Lightly whisk the mixture and put it inside the processor.Beat until it forms a dough.

3. Knead the dough with the raisins. Drizzle some flour coz its a bit sticky. Flatten the dough to be around 2.5 cm thick..make circle shapes out of the dough.

4. Put a grease-proof paper on your baking pan and bake the scones for 15 minutes at 180 deg until it turns golden. Serve with butter and jam (dont repeat the same mistake i did..hehe)

There are 2 more scone recipe which i have tried and taste delicious..i'll post it here when i bake some for the family..

Aku akan cuba resipi hang ni Sue. Aku pun jarang2 sgt mkn scones. Bila aku makan aku pun tak ingat. Aku pun kurang suka sbnnya sbb aku tak berapa suka jem... tp kalu letak nutella pasti aku sangat suka.
