Mini Scones

I made these over the weekend, using my moms recipe. I have to admit they taste better when she makes them (of course!).

This recipe is quite a large one, I made half of it.

Full recipe before halving:

  • 4 full cups of cake flour
  • 6 tsp royal baking powder
  • ¾  t bicarb
  • ± ¾ cup sugar
  • ½ pound butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2t vanilla essence + 2 t banana essence

Bake on 180ºC until golden.

Serve with jam + cream or cheese or just plain butter.


On Saturday was my first weekend waking up in my new house. With the excitment still looming in the air I decided to wake up earlier than usual and make pancakes. Eggs and sausages that early would have been too much for my husband and I – who don’t even eat breakfast on work days.

So I opted for something lighter… but it actually felt heavy. Needless to say, we enjoyed them. I ended up making a little too much.

The basics went in:

lemon juice

I used apricot jam as a sweetener – couldnt decide between cinnamon or maple syrup.
