Bonfire Night and Scones

Tea and scones in Ely Cathedral

Here are a few snaps of the last couple of days in the UK. On the way to Cambridge we stopped in Ely a cute little medieval town with a cathedral dating back to 679AD!! Of course we had tea with scones clotted cream and jam in the cathedral and Jasmine noisly said her prayers at the front of the church.

They had sausage stands in Cambridge. Jasmine and I ate a Lincolnshire sausage hot dog.
Bonfire night in Cambridge we were treated to a wonderful display that lasted about 20 minutes.

We had a wonderful evening and Jasmine was not afraid at all she had her eyes wide open taking in the fireworks, now looking forward to the next 4th July.

Of course we can't end without a recipe, so here is how Grandma makes scones.

  • 8oz SR Flour
  • 1.5 oz margerine or butter
  • 1.5 oz castor sugar
  • Pinch salt
  • 1/4 pint milk
Rub fat into the flour and mix to a soft dough with the milk. Add a little more milk if feels dry. Turn onto floured board and roll out to about 3/4" in thickness.

It is usual not to handle scone mixture too much but with this particular recipe it enhances the mixture to knead a little before rolling out.

Place on a greased baking tin and place in hot oven at 220 degrees centegrade or425 F for 10 to 12 minutes.

Makes 5 - 6 scones.

Love from the UK
