Audax Artifex was our January 2012 Daring Bakers’ host. Aud worked tirelessly to master light and fluffy scones (a/k/a biscuits) to help us create delicious and perfect batches in our own kitchens!

For my fist ever Daring Bakers challenge I had to make scones. This is some thing that i have done many times before but it's so good so I didn't mind at all! Moreover, it was a new kind of recipe and not at all as the ones I usually make. I use more of a Brittish style of recipe when I do mine, which has sour milk in it.

I thought that it would be a nice thing to do them for breakfast since its Friday after all :) And as scones are made quite quickly I didnät have to get up too early to make them. My boyfriend really liked the effort since we usually can't eat breakfast togeher.

These tasted great even though my dough was a little to wet. The rised very well and hade a very nice texture. I also noticed that the where lighter than the ones with sour milk in them. But i did miss that sour taste you get from the sour milk. And I will probably keep making the brittish scones but it's is good to have tried a new recipe and it's nothing wrong with this one I just prefer the taste of the brittish ones.

I didn't add anything to my scones but I think it would be great to have some herbs in them or rassins as Audax suggested. Maby even blueberries would make them even more delicious, but I'll have to wait for summer to arrive before I can try that.
