I love these scones. As does everyone I make them for. They are lighter than the traditional scone, quicker to make, and much, much easier to get right! It’s definitely a recipe to keep up your sleeve for when you need to whip up a quick something, or you want to impress without too much fuss!
They are great for a tea time snack but I think they’re also great for a sweet brunch treat too! Light but decadent, you can eat them plain, with softly whipped (or double) cream, with jam, a berry compote, fresh berries… or all of the above!
I’m back in Sydney for a few months and going into winter, berries are out of season. As should cherries be but I found some at a good price, so enjoyed the last of the season, crushing them with some freshly whipped cream to accompany my scone.
We’ve been super busy since coming back and haven’t been able to entertain yet. So though we enjoyed these at home ourselves, I also packed some up for friends with some simple makeshift craft supplies :) They’re a great treat for anyone who receives them. The feedback from my friends? Delicious!
Enjoy this one-bowl, quick-mix-with-a-fork, sugar-crusted treat warm from the oven for the ultimate treat. Yum.
