I'm so glad you liked them and made them your own! Kudos for the sour cream and milk, I wouldn't have thought. The substitution that's common here is 1 tbsp of vinegar plus 1 cup of milk. But I always prefer real buttermilk. However, next time I'm in a pinch, I'm going to try the sour cream and milk :) I definitely understand the measurement issues! I'm a nurse and my husband is military so we use it a lot, however every cookbook and recipe I own, except one, is our insane system :) I'm also glad you mentioned the temp. Placement in the oven is crucial for these. Center rack is where they need to be, but it definitely will depend on the oven.
Hi Becca! a lot of people tell me "I hate baking, it's such a waste of time" lololol and I understand... it does take some patience for waiting and baking and we get anxious for checking the results lolol But I like it, and I do something else while waiting, but I set up my alarm clock, or I forget about it too :) I arrived here 2 weeks ago and I didn't realize we can't find buttermilk here. I'll try next time and let you know if I find, but I knew about the vinegar and milk too as a substitute. In Poland was quite easy to find, but I know in BRazil people don't know much about it when I ask, so I don't know what they use. But until I lef Brazil, I had never heard of buttermilk.As for the measurements, I never really thought about the "pushing down" lol but it makes sense. My scale broke and I'm hoping to get one soon, if the recipe just calls for cups, I just use my measuring cup and I never count the gaps between ingredients. It seems to work, however, I know it's never really precise. But tell me, when you have a recipe in cups and use a scale, how do you convert? do you use them a measure cup for weighing and write down the numbers? I can't wait to get a scale because I go crazy with the cups too.Now speaking of your scones, garlic and chives (husband and I) are our favorite ingredients. I must try it! they look delicious!
Yeah I've become pretty good at converting from American recipes to weights - I measure each ingredient in cups (luckily one of my housemate's measuring jugs has cups marked on the side!) and then weigh that amount in my scales. It's a bit annoying but it works! :)
I loveeeee Roses chocolates!Your scones look very delicious!
These look so good! Cant wait to make them! Yummmmmy.
Would you like a set of American measuring cups and spoons? I saw you say your housemates thing has cups on it, but a liquid cup and a dry cup are often different, just an fyi.
Ah ok, I should probably get myself some proper ones then! :)
The scones look scrumptious! Bookmarked
I am American and rarely buy buttermilk b/c I never get around to using the whole carton before it spoils. Just add 1 Tbsp of lemon juice per 1 cup milk and let sit for 10 minutes. Works perfectly, and saves money!
These scones look divine! Lovely pictures too. Also following you on Pinterest now :)
These look delicious... I love a good scone! :-)
Your scones look so tempting! I'm ready to whip up a batch for lunch today. I love to add chopped veggies to my savory scones, things like red peppers, poblano chiles, black olives, etc. Oh yes, savory scones are the best!
As an American I feel the same way everytime some recipe calls for 50 grams...hello? lol...why can't it all be easier...
I want to make these but I don't have a method to measure grams. Maybe I should get a gram scale...
Yeah with normal cooking I'd say you could google how much things weigh, but with baking you need to be pretty accurate so it's probably worth investing in a set of scales! They're not expensive at all :)
I may make these for thanksgiving!
