Traveling Scones

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. 

Traveling Scones.

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

80g butter

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.
