Holy banana pancakes, great bites of deliciousness.

My hopes is that the explanation above is an indication to you of how good these scones are.

Cinnamon Raisin Scones

I've never made scones in my life, but I know I like to eat them. Hellloo Starbucks! I'm also a terrible baker, but I am determined to get better so... "if at first you don't succeed, try, try again"! These babies were a victory and such an easy on-the-go bite for breakfast with your coffee. I like to heat mine up in the microwave for about 10 seconds so it's warm and heavenly.

Cinnamon Raisin Scones

RECIPE:
makes 8 large scones or 12 if you cut to smaller size
 
INGREDIENTS:
2 cups whole wheat flour ( I used brown rice flour and they had more texture to them, I'd prefer whole wheat flour)
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3 tbsp butter, room temp
1/4 cup milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp cinnamon
2 eggs
1/2 cup raisins

FOR GLAZE:
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 tsp milk
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
 
DIRECTIONS
1. Preheat oven to 400F
2. Mix flour, brown sugar, baking powder and salt together. Add the butter into mixture to create crumbs.
3. Add in milk, vanilla, cinnamon and beaten eggs and mix until completely blended.
4. Flour a surface and spread your dough. Fold in raisins and then roll out dough to a 9-inch circle about 3/4" thick.
5. Slice dough evenly into 8-12 pieces depending upon your size preference. Bake for 15 minutes and cool completely on a cooling rack.
6. While scones are baking whisk powdered sugar, milk and vanilla in a bowl until smooth to create glaze.
7. Drizzle over your cooled scones. (I placed a baking sheet under my cooling rack to catch the mess from the drizzle.)

***If you want a little bit sweeter/less skinny version you can add 1/4 cup sugar to this recipe. You could also swap out the raisins for chocolate chips or nuts.

Since these were such a success I will most definitely be making a pumpkin version for Fall, don't you doubt it. Now pour a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy!

  8. Hi, My wife and I have been married for 15 years. For over five years I have been dealing with jealousy issues because of flirting and her having emotional type affairs with other men. I felt like my masculinity was in question and if I said the way she was acting bothered me, it seemed to make matters worse or I was accused of being controling. During this period I did state I wanted a divorce if the behavior was not going to end: texting men a night, leaving for the weekend without letting me know where she was going or not responding to messages. We do have a son and basically it's been him and I for the last year on the weekends. She disconnected completely from being a good wife and mother. In April she said she wanted a separation and I said no we need to get into marriage counseling. We did try that, but she was not very responsive and didn't give any effort. Afterward she was adamant about separation and divorce. I continued to say no and that we needed to save our family. She presented a separation agreement and I had to hire a lawyer. Because of the above behavior my lawyer suggested a private investigator. The investigator discovered my wife was having an affair with a close friend of the family who also is married with children. We know the extended families. I feel like I should tell this man's wife about what happened. This adultery has devastated me emotionally, I feel betrayed and I'm physically drained. I know my wife is passionate in terms of her sexuality, and I can't get the thought of them out of my head. It makes me question my own manhood, and I feel very inferior or that he must be a better lover or what ever. The problem is my wife pursued him. She would go to him and she lured him into this adultery. I felt this was coming for some time and could not stop it. She was not only lying to me but also to our son about what she was doing and where she was going. My family is important, my son loves her and as crazy as it sounds so do I. Can you respond with a course of action on how to proceed? I was still have a very huge place in my heart for her. so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my wife came to me and apologized for the wrongs she did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I, my son and my wife are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Ahmed. as it is a place to resolve marriage/relationship issues, do you want to be sure if your spouse is being faithful to you or Do you want your Ex to come back to you Contact.: E-mail: Ahmedutimate@gmail.com or call/Whats-app: +2348160153829 save your crumbling home and change of grades its 100% safe.
