Fluffy Scone : Free And Easy Bake-Along #27, Theme : Scones

^-* think this is the only sweet bakes I did for June holidays! too occupied with kids when they are on school holidays and also blamed the scorching weather >.< no mood to stay in the kitchen for long, rather spend more time lazying and playing with my kids...

While preparing this scones, I also need to fast hand fast leg mix up the batter, roll them up, cut them up and quickly pop them in the oven, worrying that these delicate scones will melt in my hands hahaha...

Wonderful fluffy scones which my boy cannot stop asking for more!! Taste heavenly with dollop of butter spread & my homemade strawberry jam!!

Anggie...i think is the yoghurt that gives the fluffiness! dun over knead, fold also helps to prevent the scone from becomes tough ^-*
