Scone Mad

Hello there, it's your petit chef, podgy here, to make the bears' some scrummy scones.

First, I sifted 8oz self raising flour into a large mixing bowl

Then chopped 2oz butter into small cubes

Like so

I rubbed the butter into the flour, until it resembled fine breadcrumbs.

Mind you don't get any flour on your nose, I always manage to avoid such embarrassing things happening to me!

The bears like fruit in their scones, so, along with 2oz caster sugar, I added two good paws full of mixed fruit. I then added 1/4 pint of milk and mixed until I achieved a dough like texture (my scone mix that is, not me, although I guess with all this baking I may start to have a dough like texture!)

I floured my work surface, then patted my dough into a round, and cut out some giant scones.

I like watching my scones bake, and anyway, food has been known to disappear straight from the oven if not watched!

I baked my scones for 12 minutes, and they came out golden brown and ready for cream and jam. Mmm mmm.

With love from the bears.


  1. Mmm, mmm, mmm. Yes please and thank you, bears.

  2. Me too. I love scones.
    I made banana bread last night and the family have scoffed the lot- I got one slice!
    I hope the bears share equally!

  3. Hmm... I'm guessing Pooh and Podgy get more than their fair share! Can I come for tea, please?

  4. Oh scones, yum! I bet the teddy bears picnic is brilliant with cooking like that.
