What does the Slayer have to do with a food blog?.
Well, she provided me with a quote:
Buffy: I can't believe you got into Oxford!
Willow: It's pretty exciting.
Oz: That's some deep academia there.
Buffy: That's where they make Gileses!
Willow: I know! I can learn, and have scones!
Ok...it's stretching. I know, I know...
Most recent breakfast food for Matt: Marbled Scones.
Deliriously easy to make. Flour and butter and buttermilk/sour cream (I never have enough of one) and salt and baking powder and vanilla (maybe something else; I don't have the recipe in front of me). Mix just until a soft dough forms. Knead briefly, pat into a round. Pour melted chocolate on top, fold over, and knead until marbled. Form a round, cut into eight pieces, bake.
Matt really liked them. He said the scone itself wasn't particularly sweet, so the chocolate really had a chance to shine.
I love it when a recipe comes together like this...fast, and delivers. Another for the 'keep' pile.
