kate5kiwis: skatey katie's DATEY SCONES


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

skatey katie's DATEY SCONES

these are so fabulous. i have never succeeded in making good scones until my friend julie gave me this recipe last week: and for those of us who are watching what we eat (as it goes into our mouths...) these scones have NO BUTTER !!!!!
i'm posting the recipe here cos my recipe file is a big trashy heap and i fear it may get lost...

preheat oven to 200 celsius
place in mixing bowl:
3 cups flour
3 tsp baking powder
put one egg into a cup, fill to brim with milk. add.
put second egg into cup, fill to brim with milk. add.
stir briefly to mix.
add grated cheese, about 1 cup.
add a packet of dates (2 cups) (or whatever)
stir gently, briefly.
sprinkle flour on bench, tip mixture out and ease it into a square shape.
sprinkle more flour on top, cut gently into squares. place on baking tray.
pop into the oven, bake for 15 - 20 mins until lightly golden brown.
perfect, as is...
or spread with butter, raspberry jam, cream....

I love making scones - especially with eggs from my own chickens, milk from Daisy, dates that I have grown, and flour that I have freshly milled.

at the lil cafe where i work, one of our cooks has been making "sympathy scones" - each week something just a bit off from the norm... (we tease him that folks only buy them to make him feel good - but really i have yet to hear one complaint) the last few weeks he's been making honey lavender - and i am downright addicted... before now i didn't care for scones atall... thanks for the recipe!

woo hoo mountain mama
i'm so glad you've started chatting here again, i really missed you!!!!!!!

*kate does a little dance, so happy she hasn't scared the mama off, or bored her to tears*

those honey and lavender scones sound so amazing (they're assaulting my senses from here): any chance you could twist your chef's arm up behind his back and persuade him to divulge the recipe???
