Scones, Scones, Scones!

What can I say, I love scones!

Whenever out for a cup of coffee or tea, they are my must have accompaniment.

I have found over the years working in the hospitality industry, they are a go to for all occasions. Most recently (pre lockdown), they have been incredibly popular with wedding receptions, clotted cream and jam is a must have on the sweet varieties. 

Over lockdown, I have seen a lot of home baking going on over social media, some amazing and some, let’s say, not so. 

For me, scones have to have a rustic look to them, they have to look home made! The flavour combination is also crucial. No one wants a scone that has the taste and look of cardboard!

The shape of a scone has been pretty much the same for some time, a round shape that is 2-3 inches in height. Why, I do not know. I like to mix things up and create scones of different sizes and shapes, there are no rules to follow, so why not be creative!?

Lately, I have been making my scones square, I find this shape a bit more appealing and a great change from the round shape!

You don’t have to cut your scones into a shape, you can also make a giant scone, something I haven’t done before, but I will most certainly be trying this and sharing the results with you.

Flavour plays a huge role in scones. Choose an ingredient that is too wet, you have mushy scones. Add too many ingredients, you no longer have a scone! Finding that perfect balance is key. 

Our New Hot Cross Scones are the perfect scone! They are jam packed with flavour and also look great with the piping on top!
