Before Blogger does it to me again, ipodmomma in England has presented us with a scone (or tea loaf) recipe. I may be back later but it's been a quiet day and possibly I said it all earlier (twice).
ps... here's the scone recipe... from a bread machine cookbook, supposed to be a tea loaf, but makes great scones. you can use a muffin tin, or just plop them right on the cookie sheet...
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
4 TBS milk
2 cups flour
2 tps baking powder
1 cup dried fruit
mix butter and sugar in large bowl. add eggs, milk, flour and baking powder, beat for 1-2 minutes. will be thick and sticky. fold in fruit, and place in muffin tin or onto cookie sheet. bake at 170 C, 375 F for 22 minutes or till golden and tester comes out clean.
makes about 10 scones.
alternately, put entire batter into pam-sprayed loaf tin, and bake for 30-40 minutes, until loaf tests done.
I may be a celebrity (rather small size fish in very small puddle). I'll know more tomorrow.
