Theresa Cutter is one of my favourite chefs. Her recipes on Home and Garden, and on her websites are a godsend. They are easy, and most of all, very lean and clean.
I spotted her version of scones on her website and couldn't help but make them. It actually came up more like a huge biscuit and not your traditional scones texture. They are gluten and grain free which is what I like about them. Oh and they are melt and mix recipes. Best of all, pretty low in sugar and a very nice after dinner treat on my weeknights.
Baking these days are a combination of usual treats and experimenting with almond and coconut flour. Both ingredients that seem so alien to me. I'm pleasantly surprised though by how successful it can be!
Almond and Vanilla "Scones"
3 cups of almond flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup of coconut oil-melted
1 tsp of vanilla extract
Preheat Oven to 150C. Mix almond flour and baking powder together. Whisk all the other ingredients and pour into well of dry ingredients. Mix into a soft dough- add a little water if needed. You can choose to flour the surface, and roll it out. However, I just shaped them in my hands. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Cool. Enjoy!
food brings people together, regardless of culture and country of origin. imagine this space like a huge dining table-filled with home cooked food, with people sharing, loving and eating. eat and enjoy.
