I love eating scones but to buy them is so expensive. I usually get mine from Pattifrance at RM1.50 for a small piece. Thanks to a friend who shared this Simple and Easy Scones Recipe, I am able to bake the above. As good as Pattifrance’s.
Here is the Simple and Easy Scones recipe.
500g Self Raising Flour
50g sugar (I use brown sugar at 80g)
1/4 tsp salt
110g butter (cold butter cut in cubes)
Mix them up with your hands till they have crumbs like texture.
Make a well and pour in 300ml of milk in the middle and slowly work around the well to mix the flour in.
I like to eat my scones without the jam and with raisins/blackcurrant. So I added around 150g of raisins/blackcurrant to the mixture. Once well mixed, tip over to the counter, lightly press and work to a thick round disc and cut cut cut cut cut cut cut cut.
Egg wash for nicer colour. I did not use in the above picture and it looks kinda pale, right?
Bake at 200 degrees in oven around 10-12 minutes.

There’s a thread in one of my FB groups that is talking about school. As many of us who loves school, there are many who hates it. I am one of them that love school. In my primary school, I was always the top student so I get lots of attention from the teachers and friends. During my primary school, I learned what is manipulation and favoritism. I know who are my real friend. Friend who get close to me just because I am smart and left me when I dropped to less than No.1 in class. Teacher who gave chance to her favorite student even though I raise up my hand first.
In secondary school, I was very active in extra-curricula activities and sports too. I was famous for being a tomboy and I have many secret admirers even though I am in an all girl school! There must have been many lesbian around! hahaha. I made lots of friends, seniors and juniors. We even made class ring.
I enjoyed my time the most when I was in university. Freedom and independent. I made full use of the facilities offered in the university. Made lots of friend and got very close to God too. Dated the tutor too! Went for midnight show and much more. If I am given the chance to go back in time, I want to go back to my varsity life.
I am a fan of Kerepek Ubi Kayu Pedas. When I was young, one packet is being sold at 10 cents each. The kerepek is crunchy, sweet but not super sweet and hot, spicy, pedas! When I eat it, I’ll will dig for the piece that has the most chili stuck to it. Syiok! Those days, it was made by the locals here in Melaka. Now, the same type of Kerepek Ubi Pedas is branded as Kerepek Ubi Pedas Batu Pahat. I have no idea why is that so. I bought the above packet from my old time kampung friend who married a Batu Pahat girl and since then started selling all sorts of kerepek “imported” from Batu Pahat. He even named his shop Kerepek Batu Pahat. The next buy, I must ask him, why is Kerepek Batu Pahat so famous.
Oh ya! All my kids, even the youngest loves eating Kerepek Pedas Batu Pahat. The above packet is sold at RM8 each. My children can finish it within hours!
