Guinness Scones Part 2
After receiving encouragement from various sources, I decided to give Guinness scones another go. This time I used far less bicarbonate of soda, but added a bit of baking powder (still not really sure what the difference is between those two). It worked, in that it produced edible scones which tasted of Guinness, but they weren’t really anything special. I think the flavour would have been great for a bread but wasn’t enjoyable enough to stand alone as a scone, which after all should be a little bit of a treat. Still, I think I saved a little bit of face with my second attempt.
In the name of research, I tried a couple of miniature scones that were being served at a work day out last week. I think they had chives in but tasted of nothing but the flour they were heavily dusted in. Made me feel a bit smug. Over and out.
