So for you today I have the easiest scone recipe I have ever found that you can enjoy in literally 15-20 minutes!

To begin with lets get into what ingredients you need! I have successfully used the whole and half the recipe so bear this in mind when your making them, its easy to make just as many as you need!

  • 2 cups of flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder

The great thing about scones is the amount of ingredients needed is so little! It means you should always have the ingredients in your pantry to make this delicious treat whenever you may need them!

Scones are great for so many different situations! They are practical and well loved as they can be so plain by themselves everyone has a favorite topping to add to them! Whether it’s butter or jam and cream!

Scones work for:

-When visitors pop in

– When you feel like a sweet easy lunch

– Great for meetings or planning sessions

– Great for over a cup of coffee or tea

– Perfect for just about any situation involving a treat!

Scones truly work for just about anything! So without a doubt let’s talk about how to make them!

  1. Preheat your oven to 230*c!
  2. Sift your flour and baking powder and salt together into a bowl! (I currently don’t have a sieve so I just mix it aggressively with a fork!)
  3. Next you want to cut in your butter! You can do this with your hands or with a fork! With your hands you can pinch the butter or Marg into the flour mixture, or you can use a fork to work the butter into flour mixture. The goal is for the mixture to resemble fine bread crumbs.
  4. Create a well in the center add the milk and quickly mix it in to form a soft dough. The key with light fluffy scones is to not over mix!
  5. Flour a board and your hands and put the dough onto the board. Knead super briefly then press out into a log, 2cm approx. thickness.
  6. Cut into any shape you so desire and place onto a baking tray with baking powder!
  7. Bake for 10 minutes then serve them warm! They are delicious warm and super fresh!

Talking about delicious food has me thinking about pregnancy cravings! Pregnancy cravings are one of the oddest parts of pregnancy! It is like sometimes you want these totally weird cravings for odd combinations and other times its totally normal things but you need it NOW! So I did some digging to find the weirdest pregnancy cravings!

10 Weirdest Pregnancy Cravings List!

  • Water Melon Dipped in Pickle Juice!
  • Lime juice straight out of the bottle
  • Sausages and jam
  • Soap
  • Kids cereal
  • Things they hated before- Tomatoes, Mangos
  • Room temperature McDonalds chips
  • Coke… but only from the glass bottle!
  • Chicken you eat with your hands…
  • Cigarette butts…. like just the end bit to chew on… now that is one I am glad I didn’t have!

Pregnancy cravings happen because of a change in hormones making big changes to your appetite and changes to your taste this can make things so different for you especially from how they used to be!

My first pregnancy craving was orange juice… it is apparently quite a common one! Plus I could not stand orange juice before my pregnancy then suddenly everyday at lunch of I was off to McDonalds to get a large Keri orange juice!

Pregnancy cravings are super weird but can also be great! Especially if your having food aversions, actually wanting to eat something and enjoying it is a really great feeling!

Now that I think about it scones would have been a great option for me when I felt so unwell, I could have had them so plain or sweet if I felt like it!

Remember, make the most of baking! It is something so simple that we can all take for granted! But making a yummy meal is never something you should just do and get on with! Little wins like this are fantastic any day! These scones are satisficing and delicious!
