English Scones

My first impression towards Scone is-- it's HARD like STONE when i was holding it. I would never try it if it's not recommended by my mom. She encouraged me to try the raisin scones from Milky Bakery. Gosh! I love it once i have a bite.

Scones-- a british quickbread/ cake/ biscuits. It can be eaten plain, or best serve with some jam. I put some blueberry filling to serve warm, and it's really delicious!! I just love the taste of each bites. It tastes so differently from cakes or muffins. I want to thank Ching for her sharing of this simple recipe. I can have homemade scones now, yeah!!
