The other night, I attempted to bake some scones with a Mary Berry recipe. It was disastrous – the far too sticky mixture spread into giant cookies and although they were bearable once covered in jam and cream, I was very disappointed. My Mum came to the rescue and shared her Grandma’s recipe. It proved that sometimes when it comes to baking, family tradition really is best, and today I wanted to share it with you too:
To make 6 fruit scones you will need:
As you can see the recipe is unbelievably easy and (I dare say) foolproof. It has the added bonus of being lactose free as you can always add some more egg rather than milk if the mixture needs some more liquid. They are the perfect easy bake for an afternoon tea or treat with a pot of tea, and really quick to make too. Sometimes, the oldies are the goodies!
I ate mine with raspberry jam and double cream on top – Cornwall style. I accompanied it with some tea from my Whittards’ teapot and adorable Alice in Wonderland mug I won. Delicious!
