The bug has bitten me again,my favorite little bug-baking bug :). I am growing obsessive with baking day after another.I never seem to get bored, measuring,sift,kneading or mixing.It is such a pleasure for me to make a dough/batter and put in the oven and when the finished dish is a success,I am the happiest :)Every day when I am set to make a snack/light dinner I always find all excuses to bake something and only then I think about any other dish.I am not a big fan of iced cakes or rich pastries and neither my the kind of bakes we prefer are something that we can straight of the oven,warm and comforting.I always like bake simple coffee cakes,flaky scones,simple cookies and not to forget pizzas and dinner rolls.Since many months I had been eying on the book baking from my home to yours-Dorie Greenspan and I recently purchased it,along with that book I also gifted myself with another awesome book Baking with Julia,it is such a pleasure to flip through the pages of these two books and deciding on the recipe,though most of the pastries and cakes contain eggs there are so many egg less bread recipes.I am yet to go through completely.I adapted this cheddar scone recipe from two recipes..I made the dough using my previous scone  recipe and the idea of adding cheddar cheese came from another scone recipe -apple cheddar scones in the book.As we do not like cheese in sweet dishes,I altered and made this scone-egg less cheddar scones.I have used mixed Italian herbs and chilli flakes for spicing and reduced the amount of cheese also.I used 1/2 cup curd instead of one egg mentioned in the recipe.These scones were a spot on,full of flavor,awesome texture and cheddar in every bite.I loved the way the dough turned out and how spongy and well raised my scones were,if you love your savory bakes,here is a perfect one for you to go with coffee :)
