B’s EGGLESS SCONES

Yes – so I’ve made eggless scones many times.  This is very easy and quick.  My previous recipe does not seem to work as well for me as I’ve made tiny adjustments here and there.

I’ve also experimented a lot with Nutella as a topping as that’s just a winner. 😉  Baking eggless scones is really easy, so if you haven’t tried it out – you really really should.   Most recipes online for scones are eggless if you omit brushing the top with egg and replace it with milk.

This picture should entice you… Hmmmm…  It’s ready to eat 😉

I’ve taken pictures before the toppings too! Ok so I take a lot of food photos.

Scones before the free fat topping.  (I love doing that: free fat.  The reverse of FAT FREE.  How can a dessert be FAT FREE?  It’s FREE FAT FOR ALL! Can’t allow me to get FAT ALONE!)

B’s Easy Eggless Scones

Bakes: About 4-5 large scones

Ingredients:

  • 225g Self Raising Flour
  • 60g Unsalted Cold butter, cut into cubes
  • 25g Caster Sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 120 ml milk , a bit extra for brushing

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 220C.
  2. Mix together the flour, salt and rub the butter. Make sure the butter is cold. This ensures softer scones.
  3. Add in the sugar.  Mix in the milk and mix lightly to form a dough. Do not knead. (NO NEED TO KNEAD!! LOL)
  4. Move to a floured surface and cut the shapes required.
  5. Brush with milk.
  6. Bake for about 13 minutes, till golden on the top.
  7. Serve with clotted cream, jam or Nutella.  🙂

Finally my revised version of eggless scones.  Have been meaning to do this- as I don’t use my previous recipe much anymore!  We had this with hot custard the other day and it was divine.  🙂

B’s Day Trip to Brighton

Hello everyone!  i’n going to be blogging a bit more than my usual to compensate for my absence.  So even if I was not missed – let’s just pretend I was 🙂 HAHA!

Last weekend I went to Brighton for the second time and it was lovely. When I first went there I was a bit taken aback by the lack of sand  on the beach.  I’m more used to Australian Beaches (Manly Beach, Bondi Beach, Gold Coast etc) where your foot just sinks in the soft sand.  However, never seeing a pebbly beach before I was intrigued.

This made me return there 🙂

I absolutely love beaches – just sitting and watching the swash and backwash of waves gives me a sense of peace.  The concept of water merging with water and forming an indistinguishable embodiment of water is intriguing.  It draws a parralel to humanity – we are all the same, yet we aren’t.  We merge into one light at the end (that’s what I believe).  I wasn’t planning to get philosophical there 😉  But yet I absolutely love sitting in beaches.  This one was a bit different as it did HURT.

TIPS FOR BRIGHTON BEACH:

  1. Take a comfy picnic mat – as stones can be rather pokey.
  2. Take a pack of playing cards to play (just because we did that) haha!
  3. Eat yummy vegetarian food in Pompoko (Japanese restaurant!)  A great find 🙂
  4. Watch the sun set and take silhouette pictures – just because they come out so artistic.
  5. If taking a car, park after 5pm as it’s a flat rate of 5 pounds.

Here are some pictures of our trip:

The yummy vegetarian food in Brighton deserves a separate caption

(Vegetarian Prawns:  Basically crispy tofu with veggies in the middle)

Tofu Sesame Don 🙂

The last time I went to Brighton we couldn’t find anything vegetarian besides pizza, so this was really a refreshing option for vegetarians.

Brighton is worth a day trip for visitors in London 🙂
