The ugliest scones the world has ever seen


With the help of my good lacky James, we made the pumpkin cranberry scones from Veganomicon, minus the pumpkin as I did not have any. Instead we used a cooked and pureed carrot and some apple sauce. We also made these into drop scones because the batter was wet and we are lazy, hence their hideous appearance.

We reduced the liquids a little to account for the added moisture of apple sauce, but obviously we could have reduced further. They also burnt a little on the edges (too close to the bottom element).
For an added twist (and because we lacked Pepitas to place on top) I ground some walnuts and brown sugar to sprinkle on top).Either way they taste great, and were delightful alongside coffee and allowed me to use my remaining soy cream.
Also here is just another shot of the coffee because it has been far to long since I last had some.

Ah, coffee my one true love.

A Return to testing

This is a test recipe from and upcoming zing called “Cooking with my Craw-Daddy”, this is a recipe for

Croquignole Banane. They are like a fried pastry or dough nut.

.Light sweetened goodness.

The recipe is really easy, these are a snap to make and their subtle banana flavour makes them outstanding. Really great treat, just be sure to watch your oil temperature for the start I had mine off a bit which resulted in slightly doughy centers. So be sure to keep a look out for the zine! And help support fellow ppkers!
