Tala recently challenged Isla to bake scones and she jumped for joy. She loves scones and she loves baking. We filmed her baking and talking about the ingredients, Isla chose a fruit scone recipe. She does make me laugh with her funny actions with the spatula and silly voices. I think she was in her element. She might have found her calling: Baking with Isla. Check out my IGTV for Isla’s baking video.
Recipe – Fruit scone
I love scones, they are such an easy bake and they taste delicious. You can also mix up the recipe and use what you have in the cupboards, which is great when you have a pandemic going on! Such an easy recipe, Isla has been baking since she was a toddler (you can see some of her bakes on my YouTube).
- 225 g self raising flour
- 1 pinch salt
- 55 g butter
- 25 g caster sugar
- 150 ml milk
- 1 beaten egg
- Mix the flour and salt together
- Add the sugar and sultanas, mix well
- Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and add the milk
- Mix this up until you form a dough
- Roll out dough and cut using the scone cutters
- Place evenly on a baking sheet and spread the beaten egg over the top
- Bake for 12 minutes (or until browning)
- Slice, add butter, jam and cream if you fancy!
Tala sent Isla some fab cooking items to get her going with the scone recipe, they have everything you need in the kitchen. I especially love the dry measure cone, as this makes it easier and there is no need for weighing scales. It was a mini maths exercise too, a part of our homeschooling activities.
