Recipe for Skins with cream

English dessert In our time to tea etiquetteAre much simpler than in the days of the Duchess of Bedford (the founders of the famous English "Five o'clock Tea"), and yet, in England - tea drinking has been the most famous tradition for several centuries. Probably, it is difficult to call a treat that would be most consistent with the tradition of English tea drinking, rather than the cattle. Skon is a classic British bun from a batterless test. According to the tradition, the cattle are eaten as follows: the crow flies across, the half is put on the plate, the second is taken in the left hand, the strawberry jam and the still thick sweet cream are spread over it with the right hand knife. Eats it all at once. Skins originated from Scottish "fast bread", baked on a flat stone (a special device called "bakestone", which is put directly on the fire) presumably from the beginning of the XVI century. At the same time, baking traditions and methods were used, which actually date back to the Iron Age. Initially, the cattle were round and flat, the size of a small dish. After baking, they were cut into triangles. After the appearance of baking powder, as an ingredient in bakery (the beginning of the twentieth century), the cattle moved from the frying pan to the oven and took on a more modern appearance. Although in some countries, for example, in the same Scotland, the cattle continue to fry in the old frying pan. Skins cooked according to my recipe are very delicate with a soft, crumbly-loaf structure and, if I may say so, with the "Russian size" that is customary for us, since at one time, as is customary for the English, it is unlikely to eat half of the scaffold It will turn out. Skins, contrary to English traditions (we are not in England at all), will suit for breakfast, lunch, snacks, and even just jam or jam!
