Show Scones

Well i’ve been baking like crazy lately. I wanted something quick for the kids after school and i found this recipe in an old super food ideas magazine may 2007.

It makes about 40 scones and can be halved.

8 cups self-raising flour

1 teaspoon salt

500ml pouring cream

750 – 800 ml milk

jam and cream to serve.

preheat oven to 250c.Sift flour and salt into large bowl. Stir in liquids and form into a soft dough. At this stage i use the mixer and give it heaps of kneading, no they won’t go tough. tip it onto counter and knead to combine any loose bits. cut dough in half and roll out to 2.5 cm think and press out scones with cookie cutter. Do the same with the other piece. Roll left over together and use until all dough is gone. Wifey suggests arranging them close together so they are touching as they rise together on a greased baking tray or baking paper bake for 10- 15 mins. They are delicious, ¬†awesome hot and are fine to have the next day.

So gets some mates over and rip these beauties out. You won’t stop at one.

Mmmmm Bagels

Over the last few weeks i’ve tried to master bagels.I found a simple and easy recipe to follow. John’s site is great he also responds to your posts. So I have a batch proofing now. My first attempt was a little heavy so i have adjusted the water and ¬†more kneading time to develop the gluten. Hope they turn out yummy! I think its the texture that i really love and a few years ago i became addicted to them. Blueberry bagels…mmmmm.

well i’ll try to master the basic ones then start playing with the flavors. Keep an eye out for my other latest triumphs. Awesome pizza base and Homemade hard shell chocolate (ice magic), truly super sizzlin.
