Almond Mixed Fruit Scones



I made some cream scones again. I have a little of the heavy cream left and I wanted to use it before it expired. I remember this cream scones recipe is very easy and yummy, no beater needed, just a fork/spoon to mix the dry ingredients and lastly pour in the heavy cream (or use a food processor). Form a dough, cut and bake, very easy.



I added raisins and candied pineapples in my almond scones this time. Oh mine, this scones are just so delicious, so good when it was still warm and also very good when it's cold or days later (if it can last that long). I offered my hubby a piece when it was still warm, he refused to eat it. I was like this is a very tasty stuff, still he shakes his head, oh well more for me and the kids then. Guess what, he came home today and decided to try one, less than 3 minutes later he came out from the studies and took the whole container (only 2 left), I had to yell at him, you got to save one for me ya, don't finish all! LOL! It is that good, can even convert my hubby!

Remind me of English tea time of scones and tea. I love scones that are warm. So what to do when you want it warm? Microwave ah?

Little Corner of Mine said...

You're welcome beachlover! Yes, go make yourself some scones, if it turns out great, it's delicious! Soft and fluffy ya!

Thanks Dwiana. This scones is sure yummy, hope you find time to make some.

You're welcome E. Hope you like it too!

Hi Veronica,
The recipe for scones is posted already. Just click on the hyperlink of cream scones.

As for the nasi lemak, just like cooking rice in the rice cooker, instead of water, you put coconut milk, add a pinch of salt and black pepper and two knots of pandan leaves. Very easy!

Thanks bigfish. Yes, great with coffee, but since I added almond essence, it's delicious eating it alone too.

WokandSpoon said...

Veronica said...

Thank you very much for the Nasi Lemak receipe. Wow! It is really easy. I will be trying it and let you know how it goes.

Thanks!
Veronica

You're welcome Veronica, yes it's very easy to prepare nasi lemak at home. :)

Thanks Cranberry. I wish to have some for my cuppa of coffee now too!
