The scone challenge.

Sunday challenge
Every one was getting peckish, so Prudence and I decided we would have a bake off.
"The scone challenge."
At least we felt that it would fill them all up after the cooking was done. 
Of course.... always, there are many hands all wanting to help at the same time.
"let me wind the handle." "Don't bump I will get flour on my fur."
"I don't like grating, I might take my skin off."

Well I could see they needed to learn a few lessons.

"OK guys listen here"
"We can have fun cooking with out fighting and being jealous that some one has a better job than you. We need team work."
With out every ones help the scones won't happen. 
Boof was getting a little too close to the sifter, and got flour all over his face. 
Then they all started to giggle. 
Prissy Pink was doing a very good job of stirring. We did this outside in front of our huts, because the morning was so lovely. 
Prudence had a team and so did I. We were going to see who was the winner. 
The bears decided we needed to make a different scone so it would stand out as the BEST. 
 We made Petite Orange scones that had a glaze of orange on top.
Boof said, " was he petite...."."I'm afraid not Boof"  Tiny is petite..."
"Well if I am not petite could I have several scones." 
They came out of the oven looking good. Every one wanted to smell and taste them.
Another lesson in Patience..... 
"DON'T touch it, because it is hot and would burn your fingers."
"You all have to wait until they are cold and we put the glaze on." 

It was so yummy that every one thought theirs the best. 
Prudence's kids made great scones and they liked them the best. 
We thought ours had more class, so it was a good lesson in telling them. we all like different tastes and different things, so it meant every one was a winner.
They all had a great morning tea, and their tummies were very full.
PS.... Granny has the best recipe book, although to see it it looks a bit worn.
She tells me it has recipes from her Gran, mother and loads of friends. 
That is why she loves cooking. It reminds her of friends that are not near her any more.  
Ahrrrr... lovely sunshine, full tummies and happy campers, what more could we want.
We are all having the best time.
Hugs Wilbur

These scones are for you, my lovely followers.
Have a taste they are what Prudence made.

My thought for the day.
"I can do things you cannot,
you can do things I can not;
together we can do great things."


  1. Hi Kay and Wilbur,

    The scones look delicious and what great bakers you are. Hope you have enjoyed the weekend

  2. Wilbur, we're having a giggle here that you made American style scones and Prudence made British style ones :oD We like cheese ones the best.

  3. Hi Miss Granny,

    Hugs,The Mom ♥

  4. What a great post and thought for the day. We learn these lessons as children and sometimes forget when we are grown. The scones look delicious and the bears are so cute. I want to go to camp too. ;-)
    Happy Sunday,

  5. No doubt about it - you're having the time of your life in camp, dear Wilbur! Both scone versions looked so yummy... and it's great you've taught the younger bears a lesson about teamwork... especially when eating the scones at last as a team! ;O)

  6. Mmmmmmm het water loopt me in de mond bij het zien van zoveel lekkers, jammie!!! Wat zitten jullie daar allemaal samen gezellig scones te maken, en ze zien er echt heel erg lekker uit. Mijn complimenten Wilbur voor jou en al je vrienden. Oma heeft zalige recepten dat zie je zo. Eet ze maar heerlijk op.


  7. Kays grazie per i dolcetti! Quanta confusione nella tua cucina, ma con l'aiuto prezioso di questi teneri orsetti la torta sembra molto appetitosa!

  8. Dearest Kay,
    What a lovely presentation of yummy scones with some moral lessons!
    Happy to read you here and wishing you a lovely week.

  9. I'll take one of each please, they look so good! I have some recipes that were my mother's. Making them brings her back to me.


  10. Oh my oh my...I bet they taste fabulous and with the glaze oh my!!!


  11. Ohh...why am I not there??? It's okay. I'm having a late night snack of honey mixed with peanut butter on toast.
    Guess I'll live...

  12. That looks like a lot of fun! I never had scones, we don't have them here......but I can see they are delicious!

    Wishing you many more lovely days!

    Big Hugs, Pink
