Today was a busy day. The kitchen was hustling. I used the Tassajara Bread Book and made what they claimed to be cream scones. They turned out well, but seemed a lot more like english muffins to me. The recipe uses cream of tartar and has you cook them on the stove in a cast iron. They puff up nicely when they’re over the heat.
Here’s the progression:
These ‘bake’ in a cast iron on the burner
They don’t look amazing, I know. They got a bit of a scorch. But they taste great. I have them in the fridge and we toast them just like english muffins.
We wouldn’t have eaten them all, so I froze some to cook later. I lay them out flat on a baking pan and freeze them like that so they don’t stick together. Then when they are frozen I put them in a zip top labeled, dated bag in the freezer.
There you have it.
