Scone Making at Ambleside
This Sunday afternoon we thought it would be nice if some of the residents helped make the scones for our afternoon tea. When we brought out the ingredients Margaret, Daisy and Mary instantly came over to take part in the preparation. They immediately went about rubbing the butter into the flour, and then mixing with milk to make a dough before rolling out. It was as if their minds just clicked back to when they used to make scones for their families years ago. The scones turned out wonderful, and all the residents really enjoyed them.
We made wholemeal, cheese,sultana and plain scones which we served for afternoon tea.
