English Scones II by claremanson English Scones II by claremanson
Well you can't get much more English than this!

My kids have been bugging me for food since they got up this morning. I was going to make little tarts but then i saw:iconvampyratekitty: had some scones in her gallery today so that was that!

The scones are made with rice milk instead of cows milk as my youngest is a little intolerant to it. For the filling i added strawberry conserve and lactose free strawberry yogurt.

As it is contains gluten i can't try them myself (i'm trying to use up all my normal flour to make room for gluten free flour) but the kids ate them in a flash! I also gave one to my other half without telling him it was rice milk, he could not tell the difference :)

I love the way how the straw yogurt run's out of the scone!

I just made scones one time in my whole life - they were cranberry scones and really delicious - now u motivated me to try baking scones a second time :XD: thanks for that

It's a video made by a British guy about the top five prejudices about the English. Only it's a total parody and very sarcastic. It's super funny. Top Five Misconceptions About the British, or something.

scones are lovely, kind of cakey but heavier and more buttery, you have to have them fresh and warm and with a filling :)
I'm glad you like the cup, the kids got one each that came with their minnie mouse easter eggs :)

yum! Not much difference between American southern biscuits and English scones. But I've never tried yogurt on one. I like my biscuits covered in good ole white gravy mixed with sausage! yum yum! Naturally after eating that my heart clogs up for a good day or two! So I'm don't get to eat 'em that much. But these look real good.

Gravy is basically a mixture of milk and flour slowly cooked over a low heat and add salt and pepper (I think) to taste. You can also add sausage to it. Make your biscuits (or scones would work, but I think scones are a bit sweeter than biscuits), split 'em in half, butter 'em, and pour the gravy over them. Yum, yum! But not great for the heart. I imagine you could use a substitute for the milk as well.

i just can't imagine gravy with something sweet, maybe your version of gravy is different than ours, our gravy is made from the juices of meat cooking, water and seasoning reduced to get nice and thick.

ebturner Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
We make gravy that way too and I would NOT put that kind of gravy on biscuits! Gross! Nah, this is a white gravy. It can be thick or thin but it tastes marvelous on biscuits. Then you get yourself some grits, some eggs and some bacon, some people will also have ham (I don't care for ham for breakfast), some orange juice (got to have something healthy with that mixture!), and milk and you got yourself a great southern breakfast. I can remember being at my aunt's house in Louisiana with the whole house smelling of breakfast when I woke up. What memories!

Oh well...you should try it sometime. You might surprise yourself!

oh i see so it is kind of the American version of our English fry up then? i had to google grits :blush: as i have never heard of that before, sounds interesting

Pretty similar to the English fry up (which I had to google as well!). That sounds good btw. May have to ask my wife to make that sometime. Grits are good and you can put just about anything in it. Most people who aren't from the South do NOT like them. You can add ham, bacon, sausage, honey, butter, sugar, or hot sauce, etc to it. My mom thinks I defile them when I add sugar to them though. She eats them straight with nothing in them really. She's pretty much a true southerner! haha. Hot grits are good for a cold morning.

:giggle: i understand only southerners liking them. There are lots of regional foods in my country that only that region seem to eat and like, most of the regional dishes the other regions don't even know exist, i could only name a few myself.
My other half says i ruin food all the time, i am addicted to tomato ketchup, i have it with everything, even sandwiches sometimes, each to their own :giggle:

I wonder what the gluten free baking will taste like, as I've never had gluten free anything myself.

:giggle: Carl didn't taste the difference in milk which is good.

Sasha's cake will be made with regular flour, so i don't get to have any :(
The shop bought gluten free biscuits are a bit weird and taste like they are missing something but that's all i have really tried gluten free at the moment. I guess we will have to wait and see what it's all like once all my regular flour is used up. i even have to buy gluten free baking powder!

Aw, not even a really tiny piece? =( But I guess even that would be too much if you start thinking about it.

Wow. I didn't realize that about the baking powder as well! I'd be interested to try out a piece of gluten free cake when you get to making some. =)

That does suck too... but soon you'll have gluten free flour to make gluten free scones ^.^

Tiny question: how are scones supposed to turn out btw, are they supposed to be quite soft but compact, or more bread like with a firm crust and fluffy insides? I just followed the recipe but never had ones to compare with myself >.<

claremanson Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
shop bought ones are always soft and compact but being shop bought not too nice.
All the homemade ones i have made have had a crust to them and call for milk being brushed on top but there are a few ways to make scones so i'm not sure if it is supposed to be one way or the other

Vampyratekitty Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Aaah, perhaps that's it, I forgot the milk on top... though they didn't work out the way they were supposed to anyway; I didn't get a dough, more like a firm batter, so I'll look out for another recipe that I can actually roll out and cut, in stead of putting it into mini cupcake tins XD
