Ginger beer scones

Posted in Recipes by guardiangirl on January 27, 2010

Thanks to the miracle of technology i write this with a hot-from-the-oven ginger scone balanced upon my knee.

Although tonight’s ingredients looked somehow sad on the supermarket conveyor belt (small packet of flour, glacé ginger, two mini cans of Schweppes suggestive of imaginary friend), the texture of this hot scone on my knee is something to be seen. It’s a hybrid of a scone, fresh bread and a crumpet. It’s a wee bit sweet for my cheese-tooth (inadvisable word combination noted) but still, it’s a proper treat on a cold Wednesday evening like this one. And you know what? I reckons it might be quite nice with a slab of mature cheddar, I does. I’m having mine plain in an uncharacteristic show of temperance but don’t worry, I’ll probably eat the whole batch. Other things to note about the scones: cheap, easy-to-find ingredients, quick to make, slightly chalky after-texture possibly due to baking powder/shivering hand combo.

I’m off to visit the oven again – sod tomorrow’s midriff shot.

  • Nice.
  • I don’t mean to sound arrogant but looking at the above photos I can barely believe I actually made that. It looks almost like the original, no?
