When scone gets swirled : Chocolate swirl scone loaf

swirlscone2

Three weeks after my dad's Cardiac catheterization surgery, our lives are starting back to normal. My dad was hospitalized for eleven days and it took out our attention, mind, energy and time. The surgery went smooth, the doctor was competent and acted fast in critical moment. My dad had become unconscious the time he arrived at the hospital. The pulse from his heart was only 20 beats per minute which is mean below average normal pulse 80 - 100 beats per minute. We almost lost him, but Alhamdulillah, we still have him alive. 

I made this scone loaf right before new year. I think keeping food photos and use them later whenever I get busy or when I have no time to bake anything is very favorable. Just like these days, where I concentrate on my dad's recovery and not fully back to my baking and cooking time. I only open my archive and choose some photos of a recipe I had tried.

Adapted from Donna Hay's Chocolate swirl scone loaf, the scone was absolutely perfect. I fall in love on how easy and simple it is to make and my curiosity for its swirl :D The original scones were made with oats and had a large round shape and grilled-bake over an open fire. Nowadays, the scones can be found in various shapes from diamond, triangle to wedge or people cut the dough with cookie cutter into heart-shaped or crescent moon shaped.

    4. lapor....

      udah jadi sconenya...uwenak banget..
      cuma sayang pas mau dipanggang, saya teken gulungannya*kamsutnya biar menyesuaikan dengan lebar loyang* lupa kalo itu bukan roti hihi...jadinya bentuk gulungannya lasut banget alias memble hahahha...

      tapi terlepas dari bentuknya yg demikian, saya suka banget sm scone ini, meski dengan bahan yang minim, rasanya tetep enak...^^

  9. I'm quite happy through out your papa's health issue,
    the scone simply drolling me, but i think your father can't take it since it contai gluten and chocolate derivates...
