Scone for 1

I had been thinking during trips in my car and day dreaming about love and blogs and food... well that's all love really. Anyway, I was thinking about featuring a post from blogs I love and things I do or use from other bloggers.

Then, this morning when I saw Chantelle's tweet and read her post I was suitably impressed.

Fat Mum Slim is a genius

This is her blog

Why hadn't I thought of this?

I love Chantelle's blog. Always have been a fan. Now she has become an idol.

You see, she was craving scones and knew if she baked a whole batch she wouldn't stop at one. So, she made just one. One scone. A scone for one.

One Perfect Scone ready to bake (Photo from Fat Mum Slim)


1/2 cup of self-raising flour
1/2 tablespoon icing sugar
2 tablespoons of thickened cream

♥ Preheat oven to 180 degree celcius
♥ Place all ingredients into a small bowl
♥ Mix until all combined
♥ Knead a little {I did it in the bowl roughly because I didn't want to dirty a bench surface}
♥ Form into a nice round shape {about 5cm wide}
♥ Place on some baking paper on a tray
♥ Brush with a little milk
♥ Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown
♥ Enjoy while the baby naps, or before school pick-up, or as an after dinner treat {or whenever basically!}

This is Chantelle - Go and visit her. She is lovely :)
Chantelle, my newest idol.



  1. Awww... thanks! What a nice treat to read this afternoon. xx

  2. I have to agree about the scone thing. I've been craving scones something shocking since it's turned cold BUT if I make a batch I will want to eat the whole lot. I know you'd find this hard to believe, but I make great scones, particularly pumpkin ones ... don't be fooled by my rocky road disaster. I did a heap of home bake for school lunches yesterday as I had about $10 worth of bananas to use up and I bet I will eat most of it. I cannot resist home baking. There's a packet of opened mint slices in the fridge ... haven't touched them, but the banana & raspberry mini muffins ... well, I've given them a good nudge today.
    And yes, Chantell aka Fat Mum Slim, is pretty awesome :-)

  3. A scone for one, super cute idea but I really need 3 or 4 treats a day to keep me going :)


I enjoy hearing from everyone. Thank you so much!
