Next bread on my private line-up for the Modern Baker Challenge invented by Phyl – Real Welsh Scones. We are baking our way through the quick bread section of “The Modern Baker” by Nick Malgieri. Some bake the recipes in the order specified in the book, I don’t. I bake what fits into my schedule and what pleases my and my family’s tastebuds. And sometimes I just check the recipes to see which one I can make with the ingredients I have at hand.
This is another very easy recipe. Except for the fact that it calls for a food processor. I don’t have one and don’t plan on buying one, so I just kneaded the ingredients by hand. I had to add a lot more flour to reach a consistency that looked similar to the one in the book. But then it was easy-peasy. I patted the dough into a disk, marked it into 8 wedges with a knife and baked them for about 15 minutes until golden brown. Then I cut the disk completely along the markings into wedges.
These were awesome still warm from the oven, with a little butter and homemade mixed-berries jam for breakfast. I will definitely make them again!
