I don’t want to be the one telling you “I told you so…” – a new lockdown has just recently been announced for Germany… the social distancing rules getting more strict, some people started hoarding toilet paper again… let’s hope that flour and yeast are not disappearing this time or I will go crazy for sure ;P Well… just in case you need to stay home and want to bake again – I got a new recipe with bananas for you. Banana bread was very popular the first time, why not try something new? How about some Banana Bread Scones? Equally delicious and easy to prepare ;)
I love scones! They are easy to make and taste incredibly delicious. This is exactly why they end up in our oven so often – summer and winter alike. When it’s colder we prefer savory scones but in summer we definitely prefer scones with berries or fruits like these Strawberry Scones here. I mean – berries and fruits are available everywhere, so why not use them to bake delicious stuff, right?! ;)
In spring this year I bought a little raspberry bush for our terrace – hoping we could harvest so many raspberries so I could make maybe a cake or raspberry scones like these ones here… but well – this dream did not come true! Not at all. That’s why I had to get some from the farmers market for baking. So sad ;(
I am pretty sure you all heard of scones or even made them already, right? Scones are one of those typical British bakes you get with your tea. Normally served with clotted cream and jam. Delicious treat! For these scones with cheddar and bacon, I recommend something else: sour cream with herbs or just some salted butter. Maybe a beer. Jam would be weird… but who knows. I bet some folks would like that too ;))
Quick and easy?! Yes, I can do that too. Sometimes. Not often though ;)
I am not baking 3 layered chocolate cakes all the time. I also appreciate easy recipes that can be done quickly. For example these Apple Pie Scones. The dough is prepared in no time, bit chillin’, bit baking ‘ and then a bit eatin’. Or maybe a lot of eating. I can hardly stop when I eat the first one of the batch to check if it’s baked properly ;))
Hi, my name is Marc. I'm a graphic designer.
I love my job, but in between I love to bake and try new things in the kitchen. A lot of my friends and colleagues encourage me to bake - for a very simple reason: they get the leftovers - and it seems they like it most of the time ;)
