What's A Scone Anyway?

First of all, history shows scones traditionally were made all through England, Scotland, and Ireland but started in Scotland in the 1500s.

Scones became popular and a traditional part of tea time.

Anna, the Duchess of Bedford sometime in (1788 – 1861), had ordered the servants to bring tea and some sweet bread, which were scones.

She liked them so much they became a ritual every day around 4pm with her tea, I always find such stories fascinating.

They are still served daily with the traditional clotted cream topping in Britain.

  • Use fresh baking powder, one that has been opened less than 6 months ago

Perfect Snack Anytime

Some folks consider scones as a biscuit but they're not!

The big difference is a biscuit should be light—airy even—with well-defined flaky layers.

Tender, yes, but sturdy enough to support or be dragged through gravy, a runny egg yolk, or a generous serving of maple syrup.

A scone should not flake like a biscuit.

It can have layers of course, but they kind of crumble a little.

A scone is slightly dryer than a biscuit and yet, when done well, not dry at all.

Even though most of the ingredients are pretty much the same but they really are served much differently.

Some serve them with a coordinating jam, honey, clotted cream or they're great plain and just warmed and served with tea or coffee.

This recipe with so many flavors in them needs nothing else added and great to take along to work, school, or road trip!
