Blog Revamping

Hello... I'm in the midst of revamping my blog to make my life a little easier. So do not be alarmed as work is still under construction.

Festive Scones

Since I ended the year with a sweet note, I guess it's apt to start with one too.

I've baked some scones for breakfast on Christmas eve using Flower's fluffy scones recipe. I separated the dough into two portions. One portion I added Sunsweet Berry Blend which contained wild Blueberries, Bing Cherries, Raspberries, Cranberries and Red Tart Cherries. Since they sounded pretty festive, I named these Christmas Scones.

The other portion I've added the zest of one orange and some toasted almond nibs which totally transformed the plain scones into a nutty citrus delight! So Almond and Orange Scones it is!

Almond and Orange Scones

Served both with Devonshire clotted cream (which you can definitely find at Village Grocer, Bangsar Village and at selected Cold Storage outlets) and strawberry conserve, utterly Heavenly!

BTW, I find shaping the dough into a rectangle and cut them into triangle saves a lot of hassle plus less handling of the dough as compared with cutting them into rounds.

Hi,

I have been your reader for a year plus now. And I must say your blog is very interesting with all the easy recipes and makan places. Guess what? I too just had scones few days ago! You can check it out in my blog. http://asterruby.blogspot.com I'm a newbie and my blog seems a little bit disorganised. Sorry about that. Happy New Year!

Im so glad to know that they have clotted cream in msia. I'll definitely go coldstorage to buy a bulk! hehe
