Yogurt Scones

Having a child at home really gave me an opportunity to explore and try a lot of bake goodies. I was looking  for something that I can put yogurt, until i finally stumble on the recipe tips from ikea. I tried the recipe but I find the texture so soft, more like of a pancake than scones, so I made a little bit of revision. I decided to put egg in the recipe and increase the amount of flour a bit. A success on my part for  my little boy enjoyed it.

Here's the recipe:

300 g flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
1 pc egg
50 g butter
200 ml plain yogurt
pinch of salt
cheese for toppings

Preheat the oven to 220 degree celsius. Combine all the dry ingredients, flour and baking powder until thoroughly mixed. Add the rest of the ingredients. Mixed everything aside from the cheese, reserve it for toppings. I used the electric mixer for mixing. Pour it in greased muffin form and topped it with cheese slices. You can top it with anything you like, it maybe bacon, ham or marmalade. You can also add a little sugar if you like. Bake it for 15 minutes. That's it. Really easy and tasty.

Oh!ranges of different things:)

Life is full of colors indeed. It's my first time to join this "meme". Colors can be so interesting. It made me realize that each color actually says something and it's only then I realize how much orange invaded my home. I like this happy color anyway. I can never think of orange in a gloomy way. Even the falling of the leaves that turned orange still a sprightly sight for me.

 Kumquat, it is not very often that we have this at home. I like it so much, it satisfies my longing for our traditional calamondin or lemonsito in the Philippines.

 Oh! I so love Persimmon

Winter can be so cold and gloomy. Having warm colors at home can at least defy the effects of nature. This meme made me think how we often forget  simple gifts in life. Can you imagine the world without colors? Definitely, colors are something we should thank God for. May you have a colorful day!
