In Which I Attempt To Become A Domestic Goddess And Fail Miserably



So...in a desperate attempt to become a domestic goddess I decided to make scones for the first time in my life. 

I found a BBC recipe that looked really easy. Not wanting to take my laptop to the kitchen, I scribbled out the recipe on a piece of paper. In retrospect, I should have used my best Chawleigh Primary School handwriting rather than writing it so fast that it looked like it had been done by a four-year-old wearing boxing gloves. 



All went swimmingly and half way through cooking they looked lovely. They had started to rise and were turning a lovely golden brown. Then it dawned on me - I had forgotten to put any sugar in them. There followed a desperate scramble to get them out of the oven and try to press some sugar in them with a fork. I sprinkled some sugar over the top and put them back in the oven.

They are now looking like a train wreck on my kitchen counter.

I refuse to waste them. I shall sandwich them with butter and jam and put them in The Man's lunchbox. If he complains about them, I shall blame Tesco. 

You don't get older without getting wiser.

  1. They look like you put sultanas or currants in them, so maybe the lack of sugar wouldn't have been noticed, but the butter and jam will definitely sweeten things up. I think you did very well on your first scone run.

  2. This sounds like something I would do. Back in my twenties I ran low on vegetable oil to mix up brownies from a box. So I used olive oil. ~shakes head~ I hope they turn out better than expected!

  3. As the cockney gangster said to the man who was making his tea, "No sugar, I'm sweet enough already."
