|Truffled poached eggs rounded out our scone and orange-ricotta pancake brunch. So delicious.|
My friends and I decided to put together a brunch since I was in the mood to eat pancakes. I love ricotta pancakes and they're so fool proof yet better than anything you can get at a restaurant, no matter how famous it may be. And since this would be the perfect opportunity to have any baking projects consumed, I decided to practice making scones.
Good thing they tasted great! I've found that quite a few people don't really like scones because they can be on the dry side, but these blobs were really moist and flavorful and you could really taste the strawberry. They aren't the most shapely scone, but they were the first to be gobbled up by the brunch table.
Last but not least comes my clotted cream making experiment. I forgot to take this to the brunch so I ate them with the leftover scones later that day. Sorry friends!
It definitely wasn't as sweet and flavorful as real clotted cream made from fresh unpasturized cream, but it was still quite tasty on the reheated scones. It doesn't make a lot though, so it actually might be worth it to pay the price tag on the expensive glass jarred stuff. But it's a fun little experiment, and if you can't find any where you live, this is a great alternative for your next afternoon tea party!
