This week's SMS, Orange Scented Scones, was chosen by Robin of Lady Craddock's Bakery. I didn't know that Robin lived in Orange - I actually live 2-ish cities down, Brea. Well, I guess that's where my parents live since I currently reside in Berkeley. I guess it's only right that she chose the orange scented scones. Orange, located in Orange County, was once in the center of orange production. Well at least Orange County was, not really anymore though - it's all industrialized.
As for me getting better, I have no idea if I'm better or not. The cough is still there, but emotionally and what not, I'm feeling LOTS better. I don't think that I have the swine flu, but I know that there has been lots of cases of the swine flu in the local area - mainly in the dorms.
Anyways back to the scones, they were yummy! it was CHOCOLATE and ORANGE so it was good. It was really yummy to eat it right of out the oven. I also topped them with cinnamon sugar because that makes everything yummy.
So in this recipe, we were supposed to use oat flour, but I decided to just use regular flour and some rolled oats. I added actual orange pieces in it and it was really good. It was a good idea to decrease the heavy cream as in suggested.
I also added coconut on one of them to see how different it'll be. It was good, but I think I enjoy the Chocolate Orange one better.
Recipe for the scones here! Make sure to check out the rest of the SMS bakers on the blogroll.
