A few days back while i was browsing i saw in many blogspot's a dish called Kiflice and when i clicked on the link it took me to Fresh from the oven. On seeing the recipes there i knew i would join the group. Immediately wrote to them(Rather pestered them to let me join!!!LOL!!!), They were very kind enough to let me join and sent me the invite. Wow!!!!!this indeed is another wonderful Baking group!!!!!
This month's host is Anet from Anet's bread. She chose to challenge the members with baking scones.She provided two recipes but since i did not have Sour dough starter, i chose to do one with buttermilk.
The original recipe is HERE
Cranberries and Currants 1/4 cup
Rolled oats (process half into oat flour) 1/2 cup
Whole wheat flour 1 cup
Baking powder 1 1/4 tsp
Baking soda 1/4 tsp
Salt 1/4 tsp
Sugar 2 Tbsp
Grated zest of 1 orange
Cold butter 1/4 cup
Buttermilk 1/2 cup
Preheat the oven to 205C
Soak the cranberries and currants in warm water for 10 minutes
In a bowl add the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, baking soda and the orange zest and mix it thoroughly,
Now add the cold butter and mix to form coarse crumb like texture
Now add the drained cranberries and oats and mix well
Now add the required amount of buttermilk(1/4 cup- 1/2 cup) and mix lightly. DO NOT KNEAD INTO A SMOOTH DOUGH
Pat into a circle of nearly 3/4 " thickness on a well floured board.
Cut into wedges with a pizza cutter
Transfer to a ungreased cookie sheet
Brush with milk, sprinkle some coarse sugar on it and bake for 20- 25 minutes till golden brown
A wonderful tea time snack. Not too sweet and quite healthy since whole wheat flour and oats flour is used. Pretty easy to bake. For freezing instructions do look at Anet's blog
Thank you Anet and Thank you Fresh from the oven:-)
Until the next post Happy baking!!!!!!!!!!!
