Apricot Scones On The 11th Day Of Chinese New Year

CRAVINGS FOR SCONES...

I still have a small bottle of strawberry jam in the fridge and eating them with hot freshly baked scones has certainly "motivated" me to bake them in the early morning after a light breakfast.  

A very simple task actually, just get all the ingredients on the kitchen table and everything will be done within an hour.  This time I did the full portion as in the recipe by Anna Olson on youtube.  Instead of cranberries, I put in chopped apricots this time and added in more lemon zest.  

Full portion = 16 scones...
The odd shaped one at the bottom is the remainder of the dough... 
As usual, I topped it with pecan...
25 minutes of baking under temperature of 170 degrees... 
I don't know why the recipe written is brushing the top with egg white...
It is so pale in comparison with the egg yolk...
Next time I will use egg yolk instead... 
I ate two scones at one go... 
So nice to go with the cold strawberry jam...
Actually these can be quite filling...
I gave some to my neighbour...
And the rest of the remaining ones, I put inside the fridge...
Just have to airfry them for 2-3 minutes
And they taste like freshly baked ones again...

  1. Oh scones!!! For a while, I thought they were cookies/biscuits. Scones are usually cylindrical, thicker. I love scones, rich buttery scones...with clotted cream and fruit jam, so so so nice.

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
