    English Scones

    A great English Scone starts with a great recipe- I used Nigella Lawson’s, Lily Scone recipe. I love that her website translates British to US measure with the click of a button - Thank you! There are two reasons I choose this recipe - one is the leavening agent and the second is the cold butter method. 

    Assemble everything you need first, equipment and ingredients. 

    Turn on the oven and prepare baking pans. I find it very helpful to read the directions thoroughly before beginning to assemble the ingredients. 

    I used a scale to weigh my ingredients. As directed I cut the butter, then returned it to the refrigerator until it went into the bowl. I think cold butter creates less gluten and allows the flour to stay loose and airy, which helps with the rise during baking.

    The recipe calls for two leavening agents Baking Powder and Cream of Tartar. Did you know that Baking Powder is simply 1 part Baking Soda plus 2 parts Cream of Tartar? When you use a part Cream of Tartar you create a better flavor in your Scone.  

    A few technical tips I have learned across the years, first do not over mix or over handle the dough, mix it just until the flour is incorporated. Second, after turning the dough out, knead it by folding and turning to allow the lamination to remain intact and only a few turns. Third, when cutting, push straight down and lift straight up with a lightly floured cutter, this allows for that puffy rise in the oven.

    This cookie cutter set will be a go to set for my kitchen with it’s versatility in sizing, easy clean up, and ease of use.  They are well weighted and comfortable in my hand.  

    An Instagram video of this recipe will be posted on Saturday Jan 30, 2021 come have a look at the process. 

    With warm wishes for your home,

    Cinnamon Roll Energy Bites

    Today in our husMait Home kitchen we tried a recipe from an Instagram friend Hannah Bostdorff @Hannahharvestinghealth. 

    The Silicone Flour Scraper made a perfect mixing tool as there was no sticking and the shape is perfect in my hand and easily runs around the sides and and the base of the bowl. 

     
    The Stainless Steel Cookie Scoop made forming equal balls quick and easy! 
    Here is Hannah’s recipe for Cinnamon Energy Bites
    Ingredients
    • 1/3 cup almond flour
    • 1/4 cup coconut flour
    • 1/2 tbsp cinnamon
    • 2 Tbsp honey
    • 1/4 cup nut butter

    We adjusted the texture of the bite by adding 3-4 Tablespoons of unsweetened shredded coconut plus 1 Tablespoon water. The addition gave a lovely chew to the bite.

    Mix everything together and separate into 8 balls. Roll in extra coconut flour and refrigerate.
