Quick Fruit Scones which made me feel all nostalgic because it is the kind of thing we used to make in cookery lessons at primary school. The girls had no idea what scones were so I just told them to trust me !
First of all we had to convince Juliette to stop wearing the mixing bowl as a helmet, then set out all the ingredients and measured out all the right amounts of everything. It's a great recipe for spur-of-the-moment baking with the kids because it's all store cupboard basics - flour, sugar, butter, raisins, salt, milk, an egg. Juliette was amazed by how big the Whitworths raisins were ... and I was amazed at how quickly they kept disappearing into the girls' mouths whenever they thought I wasn't looking !
We had to set up a strict rota for stirring and adding ingredients to avoid squabbling !
But luckily Juliette was the only one who wanted to lick the spoon !
Multitasking - eating raw cake mix while "painting" the scones with egg !
Ta da, fresh out of the oven. I wish you could take a photo of a smell !
Waiting for them to cool down is always the hardest part !
