The season is upon us and we have been the recipient of too many bunnies in this house.
Immy and I had an afternoon to entertain ourselves and she always chooses to cook something when she is given the chance to choose a game.
At Christmas time she was given a kids cook book and she loves the scone recipe, I have changed it slightly, depending on what I have in the fridge and this time Mr Rabbit met his end by having his ears bitten off and then some of his body being smashed up and placed into the scone mixture, and that is how we ended up with Easter Bunny Scones.
I like this recipe because it is so basic, also, the scones are cooked on baking paper in the frying pan so the kids watch them cook.
Immy loves the dough and plays with that while it cooks, she draws pictures in flour on the board and enjoys the entire process.
Start with a bunny, bite off the ears and smash up some chocolate. Eat a few pieces.
Put 2 cups of SR flour, 1 cup of milk and 1 cup of cream into the bowl and stir.
Add a cup of sultanas and the smashed up bunny - how ever much you want.
Tip out onto a floured board and let little hands squish and roll and fold and squeeze.
Flour sprinkling required along the way.
Use whatever shape cutter you want to cut out the scones.
In the frying pan, on some baking paper, medium heat, place the scones.
Cook for 5 minutes, turn and cook for another five.
At the same time, let the little people play.
Do not lick the chocolate straight away, you shall burn your tongue.
Plate them up and add in school lunch boxes for a couple of days.
