Baking Gingerbread flavoured yogurt scones
Spicy corned beef and polenta was pleasant, the spiciness worked well with the mild polenta. The polenta was soft on the inside, charred and slightly crispy on the outside. It could be a nice snack on its own.
I made gingerbread scones using pepparkaksfil, a gingerbread flavoured cultured milk available in
. I modified the cinnamon yogurt scone recipe. The scones had a mild gingerbread flavour and it was very soft and fluffy. Yogurt adds a nice texture and flavour to scones. Sweden
I have never seen gingerbread flavoured yogurt anywhere else apart from Sweden. If you are curious to try gingerbread scone but cannot get hold of gingerbread flavoured yogurt, you could:
1. Move to
2. Add gingerbread spices to regular yogurt (ginger, cinnamon etc,)
3. Replace some of the flour with pulverized gingerbread cookies
4. Use plain yogurt, other types of cultured milk or regular milk.
I have not tried using pulverized gingerbread cookies. I presume it will work quite well since all of the ingredients in the cookie are required for the gingerbread scone anyway. Plus this is a good way to use up any surplus gingerbread cookies.
