Now Mrs Beeton I am told was very good at baking. So when I saw a pristine copy of her book in Oxfam the other day I grabbed it. Eagerly flicking through it I looked for something I could bake and decided upon scones as I had some strawberries and cream, yum.
Look what happened. They are not scones they are thick biscuits!!! Help! What did I do wrong?
This is the recipe (click on piccie to make it bigger), followed it to the T as they say, oh apart from them being 1/4" thick instead of 1/2" thick. Would this make them so terrible? I had high expectations of these, anyone else baked from her recipe before? I did try to eat one of them but they were disgusting ;o) Oh well good for the waistline eh. xx
