My mum gave me a recipe for scones:
3 cups Self Raising Flour
1 cup cream
1 cup ginger beer (or lemonade)
You basically just mix it all together, roll/pat it out (not too thin she said) and cut, then cook. That sounds like MY kind of recipe! 3 ingredients, what a dream.
She used to make them with lemonade, but now uses ginger beer and says they are even better.
My problem is that at the moment, they are NOT that healthy. I am not a cook by ANY means, and I don't know how I can 'tweek' them to make them healthier.
Can I use wholemeal/wholegrain flour? Could I use low-fat cream? Could I use diet ginger beer or lemonade?
I don't have any idea what foods can be substituted for what, but I would like to try something like this to take to a staff morning tea. I just want them to be a MUCH healthier version, but still very simple.
Thank you for any suggestions you can offer.
