I’ve made these a couple of times and because it’s such a basic, quick and easy recipe it’s quickly becoming my go to “Sunday morning, I want warm breakfast with freshly baked stuff” breakfast item.

So let me share this little gem with you.

Ingredients
225g flour
2tsp baking powder
1tbsp sugar
a pinch of salt
75g butter
1 egg
75ml milk
2tbsp honey
1 apple, chopped in small pieces

What to do
Pre-heat the oven to 220°C.
Sift together the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Add in small pieces of the butter and mix it until the dough has a crumbly texture.
Add the chopped apples. In a bowl beat together the milk, egg and honey. Add this to the dry ingredients and stir until you have a smooth dough.
Roll it until it’s about 1,5cm high and cut into pieces. I used a small glass to make round shapes, but you can do pretty much whatever you want.
Bake for 8-10 minutes and enjoy them warm!

Tunes: The Staves

In April 2010 I went to London for a weekend. A friend and I had tickets to see Joshua Radin for one night. He is absolutely lovely and a pleasure to listen to. However, what really blew me away was the pure and utter talent of his support acts.

The Staves are three sisters who sing in pure harmony. They are so, so lovely. I never tire of listening to their songs. After the show I bought their album, which only had 3 tracks on it. I went home to google and youtube them and came up empty handed. I only found a few live videos, nothing more. Now they’re more well known – and if anyone deserves it, it’s them.
