Breakfast scones

These scones are delicious for a weekend breakfast (or any day, really). I've stolen the recipe from Ingvild. They are delicious with brown cheese or homemade jam. Homemade apple jam is so easy to make, just peel a couple of apples, take out the core, cut it into pieces and put it in a pan on the stove. Add a couple of spoonfuls of sugar (as much as you like) and a tiny amount of water. Let it cook until the apples are really soft, then gently mash the apples with a fork. Done! You can also add a bit of cinnamon, if you're that way inclined. Here's the recipe for the scones:

2dl flour
2dl wholemeal flour, or seeded grain flour
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
0.5 tsp salt
a handful of seeds or chopped nuts
2 tbsp butter
2-3 dl buttermilk or normal milk

Mix all the dry ingredients, knead in the butter and add the buttermilk. If the dough is too sticky add a bit more flour.

Use a spoon to put the dough into 6 'muffin holes' in a muffin baking tray, or simply make them as you would 'normal' scones. This recipe makes 6-8 scones.

Bake in the oven ar 200 degrees for 10-15 minutes.

Enjoy with a cup of tea or your morning espresso!
