Sunday Brunch

This past Sunday I decided that ridiculous amounts of food for breakfast need not be exclusive to guests or special ocassions, and so I got-a-cookin' for M & I after being inspired by a muesli scone recipe in a recent recipe magazine, (not sure which one).

Muesli Scone

2 cups self raising flour
1/3 cup caster sugar (I use a lot less)
50g cold butter, finely chopped
(plus extra to serve)
3/4 cup toasted fruit muesli (I used untoasted and it was fine)
1 cup milk

Preheat oven to 200c/180c fan forced
Grease baking tray
Place flour and 2 tbps sugar in a medium bowl
Rub in butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs
Stir through 1/3 cup muesli
Add milk and flour
Use a round bladed knife and mix until soft dough forms
Using hands, bring dough together to form a ball
Turn dough onto prepared tray and press out into a 20cm disc
Top with remaining sugar and muesli (this is where I only used 2 or so more tbps of sugar, I also added cinnamon as my muesli was apple)
Bake for 18-20 minutes until golden and hollow sounding when tapped.

Muesli I used

Very yummy with jam

The rest of brunch

Baked Egg, Ham & Mushroom Tarts
(with roasted tomato)

French Toast with Maple Syrup

Nothing like maple syrup glistening in the sun....

Of course, I included a fruit salad

Iced Green Tea with mint

Lemon Ice Tea

It was the most perfect weather for brunch outside

I really love cooking. Really. I can't express how relaxing I found it - it's almost silly.

Stay well,
