Cream Scones

The first time I came across scones was during my Home Economics lesson. The entire class except for one girl, got a good scolding because we did not lift the flour high enough to allow air be incorporated, resulting in batches of flattened biscuits. In the end, we had to do it all over again (we didnt enjoy cooking then).

Many years later, I had my real taste of scones at Tea Room (now no longer exist) a coffee shop in the previous Westin Hotel. It was nothing unusual and definitely did not leave a deep impression. What changes my mind was after I had some really good ones at Perth, served with generous portion of clotted cream and homemade strawberry jam, it was sensational.

Fast forward, I had some real good scones during my recent visit to Bukit Frasers (scones was the last thing to expect) and that prompted me to make some at home. I sieved through all the scones recipe at home but in the end decided to try out this particular one simply because the author had put in so much thoughts and hardwork into her research!

How did it turn out? Perfect if eaten fresh from oven, its a pity I did not have any clotted cream nor jam at home. But it has been a good boost to my confidence, at least, if I met my Home Economics teacher, Mrs Kan again, I can proudly tell her, yes, I can make scones! Lol.

I'll like to try this recipe one day but here's sharing a superb recipe which never fails me.

Your post reminded me that I've not been making scones for the longest time! Will get my act together since I've made some lemon curd ;)
