And now, back on track...

An American version, but very good - and easy!

Cranberry-Orange Scones

3 cups all purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 Tbs grated orange peel (dried in the jar works fine too)
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) chilled unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
3/4 cup dried cranberries (Craisins is one brand)
1 cup chilled buttermilk

1 Preheat oven to 400°F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
2 Sift flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda into large bowl.
3 Mix in orange peel.
4 Add butter and rub in with fingertips until mixture resembles coarse meal.
5 Mix in dried cranberries.
6 Gradually add buttermilk, tossing with fork until moist clumps form.
7 Turn dough out onto lightly floured work surface. Knead briefly to bind dough, about 4 turns.
8 Form dough into 1-inch-thick round. Cut into 8 wedges.
9 Transfer wedges to prepared baking sheet, spacing 2 inches apart. Bake until tops of scones are golden brown, about 20-25 minutes.
10 Let stand on baking sheet 10 minutes.11Serve scones warm or at room temperature.

Yield: 8

Cooking Tips

Buttermilk substitute: 1 Tbsp lemon juice + milk up to 1 cup; let stand at leat 5 minutes at room temperature.
I used salted butter and reduced salt to 3/4 tsp..

LOL. Well I did actually see Nigella do a show on poached eggs and toast - I kid you not.

Never had beans on toast, might have to give that a try - sounds good actually. Would it be sacrilige to add some bacon?

bacon is good.

best to use heinz beans though, the maple stuff ain't to bad, but it's a tad sweet...and a fried egg on top is good too...your arteries will be happy

Ah glad you clarified that - I bet I would have gotten the wrong beans. Although I don't mind ours. Perhaps World Market...

Not quite convinced yet that beans are breakfast - but I'm working on it...
