I was introduced to scones by Agatha Christie. When I was reading her novels, about the tea time treats they serve in England, I used to be so interested in them. I just imagined they were such delicious treats, but never imagined that I would be baking them in my kitchen. With internet, the world has become so small and we are trying many of the authentic dishes from around the world. Thanks to the awesome bloggers out there, we are easily getting the recipes without much effort. My blog has so many International recipes and I am really proud that I too am doing my little part in sharing my recipes.

The next Swedish bread I made last week is the saffron bun. I am sure many of you would be familiar with this saffron bun. Saffron is added while kneading the dough and it gives an amazing colour to the final buns. These buns are made for Swedish Christmas time St Lucia feast on December 13th. Made in the shape of S, they are also studded with raisins.
This month’s Bread Bakers host Mayuri of Mayuri’s Jikoni suggested a very nice theme. We need to use natural sweeteners in our bread. My very first thought was a quick bread when I saw the theme. But I was not very sure about flavour combinations. As I have done breads with banana and chocolate, I chose to do it with carrots and coconut. There are so many recipes for this combination and I chose a very simple recipe from Tastes of Lizzy T. But as I was doing the natural sweeteners theme, I used palm sugar instead of normal sugar and made a caramel using palm sugar to pour on the bread. I also topped it with roasted coconut.
For this month’s Baking Eggless Group Challenge, I wanted to select an easy yet so good looking bread. When I came across the Swedish Tea Ring aka Vetekrans, I know this would be it. The recipe is so much like the cinnamon rolls but it looks different. There are so many shapes you can make these rings and each and every ring I saw in google search was looking so good. But I canonly make two as the dough is for only two rings. Set your creativity while making these rings and you will be very much pleased. From the month of June, my oven has seen so many breads and my house smells like a bakery. During my childhood, I used to love the bakery smell and I would just love to go to the bakery to have a deep breath just like how Jerry goes behind the cheese aroma. But nowadays after baking daily, these aromas doesn’t excite me any more. Last week we made 4-5 cakes in a class and I couldn’t bear that smell. I just couldn’t beleive it. But still baking fascinates me and making these types of bread rolls excite me.

Today is the first day of Blogging Marathon#15 started by Srivalli of Spice Your Life. I missed the last BM due to a lot of reasons and this time I didn’t want to miss it. For the first week I selected Bread Baking. As you all know, I am very interested in baking bread. I love the smell of the yeasted dough and the aroma which fills the house at the time of baking. So when I saw this option I selected it at once. I saw this recipe in Reader’s Digest Baking With Love. I adapted the recipe from the book. I have baked these teacakes twice. First time hen I baked it, we had a low voltage and the oven didn’t heat up. So it took nearly 1hour to bake and he top was white in colour. The teacakes were tasty but were very crisp and firm. So I baked it again. Again I had low voltage and I thought The same thing is going to be repeated, but after some time, voltage came back to normal and the cakes baked to nice golden colour. They were also soft and moist. The fruits give thee required sweetness to the cakes. This goes very well with a cup of coffee or chai. Take a look at other blogger’s creations here.
