Scones and Cream, my way

Back with a bit of Sunday Baking! Mr. Ojo was taken very poorly, yesterday. He ended up in the out of hours Dr, at midnight. All is good now, thankfully, he is still very under the weather, and has slept most of the day, but the Dr told us, he should be fine after a couple of days on the anti-biotics.

He still managed to scare the crap out of, well, both of us actually!

So today while he slept, I relaxed my favourite way, in the kitchen.

The first thing I made, was adapted from one of my favourite recipes, found here on AllRecipes
As the creator states, don't be put off by the mayonnaise.

As usual I changed the recipe to suit me and my needs.

250g of Self Raising Flour
2 tablespoon of granulated sweetener
225ml of semi skimmed milk
75g of Hellman's lighter than light mayonnaise

Heat the oven to gas mark 4. Mix the flour and sugar in a bowl, then blend in the milk and Mayonnaise. It will start to form a very sticky dough. I greased a 12 cake tin, then spoon an even amount into each. I needed 2 spoons to do this effectively, and don't worry too much about getting the air out, etc, they will fill and rise. Place in the centre of the oven for 25 mins, they should rise and slightly brown.
Not the same shape, but good taste
As if they weren't delicious enough, made my way, they are 83 calories each!

Obviously this needed cream too! So I adapted one of my own recipes!
I took the topping from my cheesecake recipe, but I swapped out the fromage frais for 0% fat free, Greek style yoghurt.

It is yummy, and stored in a sealed pot in the fridge, I estimate you could get 30 desert spoons from the total pot. This makes each spoon 48 calories.

That means that this delicious looking treat..........

Was a total of.......
131 calories!

I will say, the sweetener is a taste you adapt to, you may want to start with a little less.
