Scones for snack 28 February 2010

Sunday afternoon.
EnHui and I baked scones for snack. Hui loves mixing the batter whereas En enjoys shaping the scones.
Butter scone recipe *teachable moment = math
2 cups of unbleached plain organic flour.
1/2 cup of brown sugar
2.5 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
3/4 butter
1 egg
1/4 cup of milk

Mix it till all ingredients blends well.
Set oven to 200c before shaping the scones.
Bake for 25mins. Good for a family of 4 - of two young children.
Serves well with a cup of earl grey tea! :)

Hui made a cup of milo to go with it. It went on smoothly till she climbed down from the stool..splat went the milo onto the floor!

Shannon, you are doing a great job.
Sarah loves to bake. Not sure whether I remember to burn you a copy of the DK books. It has baking for kids books, yoga etc..

Am doing DK Yoga kids book with Sarah almost every night. Also doing DK Baby massage with her.
We are using the book as the guide. It helps her to visualized, read and learn. Take us about 15-30 mins before bedtime.

Anyhow, let me know if you have it or not. I can burn you a copy
