My version of cut rounds right out of the oven. And yes those are cookies in the background.
Don't hate me because I'm carby.
I found a couple websites that featured real Devon style scones and from what I could tell they are pretty much like a sweet biscuit. Then I really struck gold when I found this exact recipe from the chef that was on the show. The only problem is...
... I'm a victim of "new math" and I can't convert metrics to standard measurements. But I do know what a scone is and I've made biscuits plenty of times (but I'm guessing Ginny at Gingerbreads House would put us all to shame on that one!).
So while I can't tell you the measurements, I used all the ingredients listed...
I think they came out pretty good. I'm having them for breakfast with our home made blackberry and honey jam.
Happy Friday everyone!
Ooooh I wanted to try those too! I checked out the recipe thinking I could translate the metric to imperial but it's in weight measures, not volumetric which is beyond my mathlete abilities.
Will you be making Devon clotted cream to go with them? Thanks for the link!
They look delicious!
I was excited to see them on Edwardian Farm, as it seems they are the same thing my grandmother makes. We call them "tea biscuits", and she has always cut them out using an overturned glass. I should really get her recipe!
Those look yum!! Good job on "faking" your way through it lol
Just FYI - you can google "online metric conversion" and either use the online calculator (easier to me) or print a chart.
Ooh I love a Devonshire scone! But it isn't complete without proper clotted cream and strawberry jam... Hmmm!!!
The scones look pretty easy and delicious...send me your email and I'll send you some conversion charts..
Those are some beautiful carbs my friend ;) I just mastered regular biscuits a couple weeks ago.
OK, this is too funny - the word verify thingy says 'suckle on' That is so weird. LOLOL.
Lovely, great resourcefulness (sp?) they make me hungry!
We finally started watching the Edwardian videos...I was so excited when I saw that it was the same cast of characters that were in the Victorian farm series...how neat.:)
Yes I do remember when Ruth made them. Everyone was just amazed at how amazingly delicious they were and I was like "Dude, those are SO buttermilk biscuits!" :D
Er, so I accidentally just posted under my Google account name but I meant to post under Summersweet Farm.... just so's you know it's me. :)
hi Callie! I am thinking of giving the clotted cream a try. I'll letcha know how it goes.
Jennifer, yes! Please get and post your grandmothers tea biscuits. I love heritage recipes.
Thanks Lori, I still got all discombobulated.. so winging it was good for me.
