Spring has already sprung and what a lovely Spring it is as the weather is warm and sunny. It’s Easter weekend and all the families are out celebrating Easter Festivities with their young children. As for me a quick and relaxing trip down to the states.
For this Easter, I decided to make something I had tried recently. An Apple Sharp Cheddar Scone. I first bought it at Thomas Haas Patiserrie and had liked ever since. I then indulged on these scones once again at Creme de la Creme, yummmm! Now its my turn to make it.
The key to making this scone is the sharp cheddar cheese used. Once you obtained some then its a go!!! Like most scone recipes, I combined the dry ingredients first and then the wet ingredients. Dry ingredients included flour, butter,sugar and baking powder. I first combined the flour and butter and made it into crumbs then added the sugar and baking powder. Next I added in the egg, milk, cheese and apple. The dough was then rested for 10 minutes and then rolled out.
500 g flour
95 g sugar
25 g baking powder
125 g butter
100 ml milk (of cream)
1 1/2 cup cheese
