About us

We are a hard working, family of eight. Swimming in the sea when we aren't busy on our small holding. Daddy dragon has to work away a lot, so this blog is to let him keep up with our adventures at home.

We awoke this morning to find someone (she puts her hand up guiltily) had not closed the dishwasher properly, hence the bowls were still dirty.

Now, I know I could have hand washed them, but the wonderful thing about scones is they take nearly the same amount of time to make. 

So we had hot scones with butter and raspberry jam.

(and tried not to think too hard about clotted cream and strawberries)

Anyways, should you require an indulgent breakfast for six in under ten minutes try scones.

40 g of butter

225g of self raising flour

1 tsp of sugar

pinch of salt

125 ml of milk

1. Pre - heat oven to 220C.

2. Add sugar and salt to flour.

3. Rub in butter.

4. Add milk slowly to more a sticky but kneadable dough.

5. Plonk out on to a little floured surface and use a cup to cut into scones.

6. Put in the oven for 8 minutes.

7. Serve warm with butter and jam, or if you are so lucky with clotted cream and strawberries.
