Whilst in Aberdeen one cold and rainy day, I had this incredible hankering for something soft, sweet and doughy. My resources were depleted and only a few ingredients lay in my kitchen. I scanned my cookery books and found the only recipe that I could make without having to journey from the safety of my apartment. That’s when I found it, in a James Martin book. The most amazing Buttermilk Scones recipe. They were so quick to whip up that I could barely contain myself when they came out of the oven. Regardless of the multiple burns I suffered I was just beside myself with how delicious these little babies were. I only took one photo because… well honestly I was just far too excited with my little doughy treasures.
This is definitely something to put on the to-bake list for the New Year. Speaking of which, I hope every single one of you have an absolutely brilliant one. 2011 has been a great year for me. I’ve learnt so much about myself and have made many exciting plans for the New Year that I can’t wait to see through. Hope you all have your resolution lists at the ready, I intend to start fulfilling mine come January 1st.
Here’s to Two Thousand and Twelve- “May you live to learn well, and learn to live well. May you live as long as you want, and never want as long as you live.”
