Classic Scone

|英式原味司康|

一提到scone(司康)自然会想到传统英式小点心。回到2016的圣诞节,我们俩口到了一家英式风格的餐厅享用了传统英式下午茶。在英式下午茶里,以三层式装盛着各式各样的甜咸口味的小点心,由下到上,第一层放了咸口味的烟熏鲑鱼三明治及火腿全麦小餐包,第二层放的是传统英式scones(司康)搭配奶油和果酱,第三层放了各式各样甜口味的可爱小蛋糕。

在选茶方面,一般传统的英式下午茶都会采用最纯口味的茶。所以,我们选择了TWG伯爵茶当茶饮。另外,服务生会准备了一些方糖及牛奶,让客人自行决定要喝奶茶或纯品尝茶。

原味司康是英式茶点里的主角,它可以是甜的,也可以是咸的…甜咸两种口味都能让人感觉很棒。司康端上桌是热呼呼,外层微微酥脆而内层却是松软的口感,咬下一口都充满了浓郁的奶油结合面粉的香气,让人感到风味很棒。
