I tasted the best scones in Cameron Highlands in T-Café, a small coffee shop opposite the Tanah Rata bus station. It was served with cream and homemade strawberry jam.

After that, I was looking for recipe to make some. Do you know that scones were the first thing I learned how to bake? I took home science in school and it was the first recipe in the book. It is really sad that home science is no longer a subject in school. I learned how to bake, cook and sew from it.

I found a couple of good recipe online. I haven’t been baking for a long while. The first batch of scones, I forgot to put sugar after I made the dough. The second batch was better but the third batch was perfect.

The second & third batch recipe was from the same recipe. They need buttermilk. If you cannot find buttermilk, all you have to do is to put 1 tablespoon into the milk and leave it for 5-10 mins. You will see curd forming in the milk. It makes the scones smell really good.

I believed the technique of doing scones must be correct to get delicious scones. I watched a couple of video from YouTube to learn the technique.

Here is the recipe that I used to make the second & third batch: http://www.joyofbaking.com/SconesCoffeehouse.html. On the fourth batch, I put egg as my friend suggested. It taste good too.

You try it!
