Thank you for your kind words and support on my latest short video. For those that don’t use the community tab on YouTube (where I post short, written updates) I thought it would be good just to let anyone who is kind enough to pop on and watch my videos why it will be another 2 weeks before I post another video.
My next weigh-in at the doctor’s surgery is June 9th which is weigh-in day at home too so that seems a good time to try and spend time editing a longer video and uploading it.
I hope you are having a wonderful Coronation Day and enjoying some feasting! I had two large scones for my lunch which I made from a WW2 recipe and the rations I had and thoroughly enjoyed these. They were delicious!
Coronation Day Fruit Scones
16 oz of self-raising flour (or plain flour and 2 heaped teaspoons of baking powder)
2-4 oz butter or margarine (I used 3 oz of vegan butter)
2 oz sugar
1/4 pint of milk (I used oat milk)
2-3 oz of sultanas or dried mixed fruit
pinch of salt
Sieve the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar (or add the sugar after sieving)
Add small lumps of the butter/margarine and rub in with fingers until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs
Add the milk and mix until a stiff dough is achieved
Roll out to 1 inch thick and use cutters (I used 3.5 inch cutters which made 8 scones)
