Ah, beautiful Sunday afternoon. Lazy Sunday afternoon…. oh hang on! Lunchboxes tomorrow! EEK!!
Since I’ve been slammed with a delightful early Autumn ‘flu (note the sarcasm!)… I didn’t do my Saturday baking and thus, the freezer is empty. Slightly panicking here!
But alas, The Ministry of Lunchboxes list may just come to the rescue, because at a glance I can see lots of other options I can use without resorting to processed packaged items (of which I have none anyway!!) – popcorn, cheese cubes, dehydrated mango, little cups of tinned tuna or baked beans… yup, I think I’ll be ok 🙂
So, over on The Ministry of Lunchboxes Facebook page, we showed off a few lunchboxes this week:
Our recipe this week is ummm…. SCONES!
For being a super-easy and quick recipe – perfect if you’ve run out of bread!!!
3 cups flour
6 tsp baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1 – 1½ cups milk, approximately
Mix first three dry ingredients. Rub butter into dry ingredients to resemble breadcrumbs. Add milk, mix. Knead, adding more milk or flour if needed.
Either roll out onto bench, cut shapes and then place on baking tin, or roll out on baking tray and cut into slices without seperating 🙂
You should easily get 12 decent scones or even more smaller ones!
Bake until golden brown (about 10 minutes at 220d). Allow to cool before slicing open.
For sandwiches, add mayo, butter, lettuce, cheese, ham, chutney etc. For afternoon tea, add jam and whipped cream!
Good luck with your lunchboxes this week!!!
