we're planning a bit of a 'tea party' while watching footage of the royals tonight. the menu currently looks like this:
(there are, of course, a few
foodie bits which aren't very british,
but we have to keep the boys happy)
historically, every scone i've evah made has turned out like a brick. but in honour of all things blighty, i thought i'd give them a(nother) go:
enter the fb friends' light-and-fluffy scones recipe:
PREHEAT OVEN TO 200 C FAN BAKE.
SIFT INTO BOWL:
4 c self-raising flour
STIR LIGHTLY UNTIL JUST COMBINED. TIP ONTO FLOURED BENCH, SIFT A LITTLE EXTRA FLOUR OVER. GENTLY SPREAD INTO SQUARISH SHAPE. CUT CAREFULLY AND PLACE ON LINED OVEN TRAY CLOSE TOGETHER SO THEY HELP EACH OTHER RISE (apparently true). BAKE 12 MINS UNTIL GOLDEN. COOL ON BENCH. SPLIT AND SERVE WITH RASPBERRY JAM AND SOFTLY WHIPPED CREAM.
these have just been pronounced
oh, those *sparkly* things are $2 shop light-up tiaras...
which will be compulsory wear X
