Awoke this morning to virtually no power the wild winds had done some damage somewhere along the lines. Had a thought mmmmm just got a Cobb and in the forum they say they use it all the time at home. Grandkids starving and cold so I said I will put the Cobb on, its safe in a caravan should be fine on the dinning room table on a board. Mmmmmmm didnt think of the fire alarms that are run by batteries did I, LOL, wheeeeeee, wheeeeee, grrrr lucky its light, I had to pick it up and get it out quick to a slightly sheltered outside patio before we were all deafened. Luckily the MOTH had gone off to buy the Sunday papers. :)

I had already looked at the scone recipe in the book that came with the Cobb and decided to use a tin of reduced fat cream as this would be more practical when away camping. I mixed this tin with lemonade to make up the two cups in the recipe. I didnt over mix it as I find this will toughen scones so they dont have a prize winning texture on top. I used 3 heat beads as suggested, but with the cold day and wind I didnt feel the heat was quite as high as I would have used normally. I gave them 8 minutes on one side but 15 on the other. Next time I will try 4 heat beads and try 10 minutes either side. I wouldnt say they came out light as a feather but they were OK and would toast ok the next day, if you had any left.

Muddy they are a pair of skinny minnies, lol, I think the fire alarms going off and nanna running from the house carrying flames was more fun than the eating bit.

I somehow think your too young to remember "the good ole days" Truckster, but I can remember when......... Also in weather like this no ferries ran so we mostly lived on eggs and chips, lol.

Truckster they did stop the ferry and then restarted it but once the road was through to Cronulla the ferry was not much of a success.

The Power was connected to the houses in 1954-55, I am not sure about the water, I can remember the power going on and my mum making scones and sponges with at last a good oven.

Your not nearly old enough to remember that lol.
