Sorry we have been a bit quiet the last week. Christmas with a child is a whole new world for us and we have been so busy with all Mr. B’s events and play dates, shopping for pressies, decorating our home and just day to day activities. I still have some homemade pressies to make before the end of the week and of course a few Christmas parties to cook for but it’s all so much fun!
For now though how about an easy breakfast, today we had some delicious spelt scones and what I call homemade jam but it’s really just chunky puréed fruit that we spread on our scones.
The scone recipe is from a great book called I Quit Sugar by Sarah Wilson. She calls them Finnish scones and they are delicious.
1 1/2 c whole meal spelt flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tbs Olive oil
180 ml water
Line a tray with baking paper. Mix the flour and baking powder in a bowl. Pour in the water and oil and stir with a woodie spoon until smooth. I usually cut out scone shapes but this time I accidentally dropped the baking tray as it was heading into the oven so I just salvaged what I could and made one big scone that I sliced into 4 (not all the way through) before placing in the oven. We baked it for roughly 15 minutes. For the “jam” I blitzed a handful of cherries (de-stoned), 4 good sized strawberries and 1/2 a banana in my. Bellini. It was delicious, messy and nice and healthy, with most of the jam ending up on Mr. B’s forehead (not sure how that happened though).
Let me know if you try this and what other “jam” combinations you try.
