Fine and Dandi

I love to bake, I really really do. These days I don't do an awful lot of it I must confess. Which is sad. I'm not exactly sure why. Baking for my family and friends is one of my favourite things. I get the feeling I am still waiting for life to 'return to normal'. When we aren't waiting for Sophie to have her surgery anymore, we can get on with it.

Inspired to Iron?!

Even though my baking has been non-existent of late, I was recently the very lucky winner of a gorgeous prize pack of goodies from Dandi. Dandi is a Sydney based design studio who design and create the most beautiful textile patterns, and turn those into equally adorable (and ridiculously useful) homewares.

In my winnings I received an ironing board cover, an apron and a heart shaped potholder. Immediately upon taking the apron and potholder out of the bag I was inspired to get into the kitchen and bake something. (The same can't be said for when I pulled ironing board cover out! Although ironing is much more appealing now)
Shake it & bake it!

There is no doubt that hot scones with jam and fresh whipped cream is my one weakness (of many). So in the interests of getting baking,
I am going to share my favourite, and extremely easy, scone recipe;

2 Cups S/R Flour
1/2 Cup Thickened Cream
3/4 Cup Milk (take the chill off in microwave) ** Tip, if you'd like hot date scones, cut up a few dried dates and throw them in with the milk.

Pre-heat oven to 210 Degrees Celsius

Mix all ingredients together gently with a butter knife until combined. Place dough on a floured bench and gently press flat to about 3cm thick. Cut out, and bake on a floured tray for approximately 10mins, or until slightly golden on the edges.
Fresh out of the oven

Pop them out on a cake cooler and cover with a tea towel to keep them warm, add your favourite condiment and enjoy with a lovely hot cuppa.


What baked goods do you like to make? Or eat for that matter?
