This weekend I went away for one of my dearest friend’s wedding.
We stayed in the beautiful country retreat Milton-Park and enjoyed time being together before her big day.
As I arrived on Thursday afternoon the sun was setting over the stunning grounds.
It was one of those moments of complete awe at the beauty of creation.
I felt so blessed to be there and to share this time with such a beautiful and incredible friend.
The wedding on Saturday was simply gorgeous and a whole lot of fun.
I promise to share some more photos soon.
When we arrived home I made some scones with the jam I had picked up during the weekend.
I called them travelling scones because they are a perfect snack to pack in your bag and eat for breakfast on the train,
…although they are also good straight out of the oven, with a little bit of butter and a hot cup of tea.
1 ½ cups of self-raising flour
1 cup of wholemeal flour
¼ cup of oats
1 teaspoon of bi-carb soda
3 tablespoons of brown sugar
¾ cup of milk
6 tablespoons of your favorite jam
Combine flours, oats, bi-carb soda and sugar in a bowl.
Rub butter into these dry ingredients.
Add milk and stir until just combined.
Pat dough together (adding a little more flour if too sticky) then cut into six pieces.
Roll each piece into small rectangle.
Spread 1 tablespoon of jam on each rectangle then fold over in thirds.
Place 6 scones on a tray and brush with milk.
Bake for fifteen to twenty minutes or until golden.
