Nothing beats the good time of 2 old time buddies meet together to chat, to bake and spend a pleasant late afternoon catching up each other’s updates with some freshly baked scones and a cup of english tea. Life is short and the clock is spinning too fast, a 35 years of friendship passes by just like a blink of eyes.
Mandy, the first friend of mine in the primary school, now my oldest BFF, who is also an utterly talented baker. Today, she is sharing her perfect almond & cranberry scones recipe that she calls it “My Ultimate Scones”, adapted from the recipe book – Delia Smith: How to Cook. I used to love how my mum’s buttermilk scones tastes until I tried Mandy’s…. opps **someone please block my mum’s eyes if she happens to read this**…. well, my mum is still a great baker, especially her breads and cookies. I am lucky to have a chance to learn some baking skill from both of them, hopefully, I will fully utilize my electrical oven when I move into my new home.
I love flaky scones rather than chewy and with lots of buttery smell and taste… Mandy bakes the right scones of my taste bud. After finished her first round of scones, the taste still lingering on my mind and in my tongue… oh my gosh… I miss them so much!!! I told her and she said it is a quick and easy recipe, let her now when I am around her area, she will bake another batch for me to bring some fresh scones home… BFF is always the best!!! Ahemmm… Mandy, a portion is not enough, my family likes the scones too, more people less share… lol
I am hoping Mandy can share more of her mouth-watering baking recipes and photos here…. I need your help, please comment to motivate her to contribute more…. please, please, I ready need your helping hand!!!!
