Scones for breakfast

It is sometimes hard to figure out what to have for breakfast. There are not much to choose from here in Germany, just bread, bread and bread... We are bored and decided to bake our owns. We like the British scones, fluffy and it goes well with marmalade, butter or just ate by its own. Most important of all, it is so easy to make. After googling around for a while, we decided to use this recipe:
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 5 tablespoons of butter
  • 3/4 cup of milk
  • 1/2 cup of raisins
knead all the ingredients together and form into small balls. We brushed the top with egg yolk to give it a glanz and baked at 200º C for around 20 mins. That' it, easy isn't it?

Scones is best ate with marmalade and a cup of fresh brewed coffee, of course tee is prefect as well.
