Afternoon Tea by claremanson Afternoon Tea by claremanson
Sometimes you just can't beat the simple things in life. There's nothing quite like some quick homemade rustic goodness served fresh from the oven, all warm and comforting just waiting for a nice helping of butter to slightly melt and ooze with the added sweetness of some jam to satisfy a slight hunger in the afternoon or any other time of the day for that matter.

I used the recipe from a cookbook I have but I know I can find better so will be using this one next time from the BBC if anyone is interested in having a go [link] if you are gluten or lactose intolerant just swap the ingredients for the flour or milk you normally use.

It has been a long time since seeing scones presented this way, a very common thing in old tradtional bakeries when i was a child now replaced by the cut out version.

rustic is simple, basically done, home cooked no fuss food.

Drool! That looks so tasty! I love me a bit of rustic cake :D Although I have never seen scones in cake form before :iconobamanotbadplz:

hehe i just realized i never actually said they are scones, people are thinking it is bread! oops that will teach me for rushing!
Anyway I havent seen them baked that way for a long time, it used to be very common in old tradtional bakeries around here when i was younger, it certainly saves a lot of time with cutters just flattening the dough out and scoring it deeply with a knife to make the slices that easily can be pulled apart when baked :)
