Cheddar Scones


Some days, my kids will have home-baked treats for breakfast. It can be scones, muffins, or quick breads. Well, remember the Cream Scones With Chocolate recipe I posted earlier? The cream and flour ratio in that recipe worked so well it prompted me to tweak the recipe a little and bake this lovely Cheddar Scones. I added some chopped scallions, cheddar cheese, and bacon into the scones. They turned out great - cheesy, savory, moist inside, and crusty outside! Kids love it!


Cheddar Scones

Ingredients



2 Cups All-Purpose Flour

2 tsp Sugar

2 ½ tsp Baking Powder

½ tsp Sea Salt

120 g Cheddar Cheese, grated (I used Applewood & Sharp Cheddar)
6 Strips Bacon, cooked, and crumbled
2 Scallions, chopped
1 ¼ Cups (300 ml) Heavy or Whipping Cream



Glaze

2 Tbsp Heavy Cream or Whipping Cream



Method



With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 425˚F (220˚C). Line a cookie sheet with 2 layer of parchment paper.


In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and sea salt. Mix the dry ingredients well with a whisk. Stir in the cheese, bacon, and scallions. Then make a well in the center and pour in the cream into it. 



Use a rubber spatula to push the dry ingredients from the sides of the bowl into the well, cutting and turning the mixture just until the dry ingredients are almost entirely moistened and the dough looks rough and shaggy. Gather the dough into a lump and knead it gently against the sides of the bowl five or more times, pressing in the loose pieces, until the dough just holds together (it should not be smooth) and the sides of the bowl are fairly clean.



On a lightly floured surface, pat the dough into an 8-½ inch round about ¾ inches thick. Cut into 12 wedges. Arrange the wedges on the baking sheet, leaving space between each one. Brush the tops with cream and bake until golden brown, 16 to 18 minutes. Let cool on a rack, and serve warm or at room temperature.

Raw Energy Bars~Chocolate, Cashew, And Almond

I get energized everytime I make Raw Energy Bars at home. I have tried several recipes and flavors before; but, this Chocolate, Cashew, and Almond flavor is currently my favorite! It's made from scratch using raw ingredients, such as Medjool dates, cashew, almond, cocoa, and coconut. You will be amazed with the end result. Not only are these bars good for you, they also taste great! So, if you are into raw energy bars, then you may want to try this recipe. If possible, please send me your feedback as well. Have a great weekend.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
