I got dragged down to the woods this morning by Bodhi to go on an adventure. Wellies on and we were on a mission to find the ‘cabin’ otherwise known as the ‘creepy cabin’ at the side of the creek.
We paddled a short way down the rather stinky creek and there it was….the creepy cabin, complete with a brown and crispy Christmas wreath.

Boots are way too big, but waterproof!
‘Chicken Mushroom’ – edible, but not eaten, well not by us anyway
But, before all of the adventuring, I made some scones!
3/4 cup heavy cream 1 egg 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 2 cups all purpose/plain flour 1/4 cup sugar 2 teaspoons baking powder 6 tablespoons butter (cold and in small pieces) 1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen – don’t defrost frozen)
Preheat oven to 400F. Whisk together cream, egg and vanilla. In a large bowl mix flour, baking powder and sugar. ‘Rub in’ the butter to the dry ingredients. Add the blueberries.
With a fork, mix the cream mixture into the dry until just combined – be careful not to squish the blueberries.
Knead the dough together and make a 6 inch circle. Cut into 6 wedges and transfer to a parchment lined baking sheet.
Brush the tops with cream and sprinkle with sugar.
Bake for 16-18 minutes, rotating the sheet halfway through cooking.
Cool and eat, if you can wait, otherwise cool a little bit, then eat!
