JUNE 7, 2009
Sunday, the 7th, was my in-laws anniversary. We made plans to meet them for breakfast. Although we were taking them out for breakfast, I couldn’t walk into to their home empty handed.
I had had some buttermilk that needed to be used up. Since I have been neglecting my Nancy Silverton Challenge, this was the perfect opportunity to work on completing the task I previously committed to (baking my way through the entire book).
I choose the Fruit and Nut scones, A) because it was the morning and what better way to start off ones morning than with a scone and B) I needed to use up the buttermilk that was on the verge of becoming something super nasty.
make the dough and then shape in a flan ring or spring form pan
cut into 8th’s and then separate and bake
They were easy and delicious. I am going to make these again and swap out some of the fruit for other ingredients. Be on the lookout for a modified version of these.
