A very quick and easy recipe for today’s recipe and another quick read. This is the second book in Seanan McGuire’s Wayward Children series. You can read my recipe and review for the first book, Every Heart a Doorway, here.
Synopsis: Twin sisters Jack and Jill were seventeen when they found their way home and were packed off to Eleanor West’s Home for Wayward Children.
This is the story of what happened first…
Jacqueline was her mother’s perfect daughter—polite and quiet, always dressed as a princess. If her mother was sometimes a little strict, it’s because crafting the perfect daughter takes discipline.
Jillian was her father’s perfect daughter—adventurous, thrill-seeking, and a bit of a tom-boy. He really would have preferred a son, but you work with what you’ve got.
They were five when they learned that grown-ups can’t be trusted.
They were twelve when they walked down the impossible staircase and discovered that the pretence of love can never be enough to prepare you a life filled with magic in a land filled with mad scientists and death and choices.
Can’t wait for the next book.
Can’t beat an auld scone and cup of cha. I’ve made a few different dairy free scones but these ones are probably the nicest followed closely by coconut oil ones I made not so long ago. They’re really quick and easy to make as well.
What you need…..
- 200g Coconut Milk
- 2 cups Flour
- 2 tsp Baking Power
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 2 tbsp Sugar
- 1/2 cup chopped Dates
Preheat your oven to 200c. Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar into a bowl. Add the chopped dates and mix. Stir in the coconut milk careful not to mix it up too much or you’ll toughen the dough. Roll it out on a floured surface to about an inch thick and cut into 8 scones using a cutter, mug or cut them into triangles with a knife. Bake in the oven for about 20mins.
