An afternoon tea treat..
So today having invited our neighbours round for a cup of tea in the garden – I looked through my cupboards in despair, as I found nothing to offer them apart from a half eaten packet of jelly sweets! (this was especially a problem as when ever I go to theirs I am always offered anything from croissants, freshly baked scones through to lemon cake!) It became a ‘Ready Steady Cook Moment!’
So heres my what I made in a total of 30mins including preparation time, ready to be brought out of the oven as they walked through the door!
90g Plain flour
90g Wholemeal flour
1tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Bicarbonate of soda
100g White chocolate chopped into medium chunks (I used toblerone)
3/4 cup of buttermilk
Pre heat the oven to 200 fan and line a large baking tray. Place the flour, sugar, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda to a large mixing bowl then rub in the butter to form breadcrumbs.
Add the white chocolate followed by the buttermilk, then mix with a fork to form a sticky dough. Place nine blobs of mixture on to the baking tray evenly spaced apart. Bake in the oven for 15 -20 mins until just golden. Serve warm, fresh from the oven or cold. Enjoy!
