Yesterday I had a little taste of England for breakfast - scones.
Usually in England these are teatime food. With butter, jam AND whipped cream. Sometimes plain, sometimes with raisins. The perfect afternoon tea on a summer day.
English people go for a drive at the weekend and stop for a Cream Tea - it means scones and a pot of tea.
These scones - above - they came in a bag!
I bought them at Sony Plaza in Sapporo Station and followed the instructions: heat for a few seconds in the microwave, then butter and jam them. Thanks to a student who gave me her homemade apple jam....but sadly I have no whipped cream.
But - they are pretty good. A little small. But soft and good taste.
If you are in Sapporo Station - have a look and try them yourself.
The company that makes them is based in Yorkshire. Haywood and Padgett makes scones for supermarket chains in the UK, and is now starting to sell scones in Asia.
Here is their website - lots of scone pictures!
