So, when I said that I’d post the recipe in the post earlier today, I meant, “I’l post my epic fail of what was supposed to be an awesome scone but really turned into burned crumbles of the idea of a scone.” Oops.
I mean, REALLY?
Sans the complete flatness and burned edges these actually tasted quite good. The boyfriend-roommate and I actually polished them all off. I warned him, “do not share with anyone else!” I was too embarrassed to let anyone try/see them. OMG.
This time around I tried almond flour; I have to admit that the kitchen was kind of warm so the mixture of that and coconut oil that wasn’t cold enough, are both contributing factors. I mean it’s about presentation too! I can’t make an ugly scones, ew.
These are definite “make-again” because the taste was chocolate and hazelnut, you really can’t go wrong – unless you burn them and turn them into pancakes. Not. Bitter. At. All.
Great start: Chop Hazelnuts
Enter: dark chocolate
Voila! (hand over face, peeking through middle and index finger, still can’t get over this)
I just had to share, it’s sometimes from our mistakes that we learn the best… here’s to learning! I need a glass of the pineapple wine…
