    Blossom's Scones

    500 grams Self Raising Flour
    110 grams margarine (not butter)
    50 grams caster sugar
    300 mls milk

    Method

    Preheat oven to 240 dgrees.
    Put flour and sugar into a bowl
    Rub margarine into the flour/sugar mix with your fingers (it doesn't need to look like fine breadcrumbs, but rub it in reasonably well.)
    Dig a well in the centre and pour in all the milk.
    Using a spatula or knife blade, gently draw the flour towards the centre of the bowl, into the milk.
    Avoid stirring vigorously, you need it to come together only so there are no visible puddles of milk in the bowl. Go very gently and slowly.
    Tip out scone mix onto a well floured bench top. Using your hands, press it together into a ball and give it a very gentle knead - maybe ten or so kneads until it comes together and looks well combined. Remember, you're not making bread - no vigorous kneading is required!
    Cut into 12 scones and place them close together - almost touching, on a greased and floured baking sheet.
    Brush with milk.
    Bake at 240 degrees for approximately 13-15 minutes, until golden on top.
    To test, pick up a scone and knock on the bottom - it should sound hollow.

    Serve with jam and cream

    Hi ladies!

    Apologies for leaving you all in the lurch. Got sent away on another business trip and only just got back. Will read back over your posts when I get around to having breakfast - hopefully soon, ha ha.

    Back soon,

    Blossom

    Thanks @ blossom74! I think I didn't mix/knead well and made too many so they were thin and crunchy not light and fluffy! Will attempt again this arvo! Hope you're going ok and not working too hard!

    I'm just pretending this cycle never happened!

    I'm very sorry to read this hon. It never gets any easier and I completely understand the way we 'detach' ourselves ahead of the bad news. I did the same with my last cycle and regretted doing it at all, but that being said if I'd not given it the last shot I'd always be left wondering "What if?"

    Sending big hugs your way, and I'm so bl00dy happy that your DH is seeing sense and considering overseas donor options. To get him on your side, fighting for you rather than against, is half the battle.

    You're welcome love! Oh, and when it comes time to cutting the scones, I don't roll the dough with a rolling pin, I just pat it out gently by hand to a good inch thick.

    Big hugs to you lovely I am going to cross everything for you and hope for the best. You just never know sometimes. I've heard of women with low HCG levels, only to have them take off all of a sudden and 8 months later have a healthy little baby. Me, I had HCG of 45,000 at 8 weeks and lost my bub. You just have to hold out hope. HCG isn't always what it's cracked up to be

    We are all here for you no matter what the outcome

    @Lastchance75 I'm normally pretty pessimistic when the levels are low but you aren't too far off at all really. I think you are still in for a bloody good chance.
    @Billie2 I used luveris a couple of times and it really helped my cycles, I always used some kind of equivalent to it after my first cycle I think. It's LH isn't it? *casts mind back over 14 stim cycles*

    I really want some scones now. It's been a bit quiet on here ay? I'm still following.
    @MissDa I'm really sorry about your last cycle that was really harsh.
