Vanilla and Ginger Scones

Sugar High Friday’s theme this month is ginger and the event is hosted by Ruth at Once Upon a Feast. Frankly, I had a huge craving for vanilla and couldn’t get it out of my head enough to focus on the ginger. After a while, I gave up on trying not to use vanilla and decided to work with it. I went with some simple ... Read More »

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Scones

Peanut butter can go on scones, but isn’t usually a part of the scone. It is a fairly dense product and the goal of a scone is to be light and tender. If you treat the peanut butter like butter, however, and cut it in to the flour mixture, you can create a scone that is not only tender but that has a peanut butter ... Read More »

Banana Scones

Normally, I wouldn’t consider bananas to be the kind of fruit that you chop up and mix into baked goods. The soft, velvety texture of bananas seems to lend itself to mashing. But I broke tradition and chopped them up before I added them to these scones. I felt that the texture of the scone would be compromised if I added all that excess moisture. ... Read More »

Peanut Butter and Nutella Swirled Scones

This is the first blogging event that I actually felt compelled to participate in. Not that I mind, though, since it was my post that inspired the event. Barbara, of Winos and Foodies, noticed that the cupcakes were quite popular among bloggers and spread around my appreciation (and others’ appreciation) for the talented Donna Hay. The premise of the event is simple: make a batch ... Read More »

Fresh Cranberry Orange Scones

The tartness of fresh cranberries with the tart-sweetness of orange juice on a buttery background makes these really bright breakfast treats. Well, that just sounds like a description that you’d find in a catalogue, doesn’t it? Even better, it’s true! Drop scones are always fun to make because they’re just so simple to miz and there is no shaping required. Put everything into a bowl, ... Read More »

Buttermilk Scones with Dried Cherries

I like a good scone. Unfortunately, a good scone outside of the kitchen seems to be rather difficult to come by these days. I know this is not true for many people for two reasons: you might have a particular bakery you frequent that makes nice ones or you have different scone standards than I do. Let me say that having one bakery that does ... Read More »

Better-Than-Hagrid’s Rock Cakes

I had always assumed that when JK Rowling refered to “rock cakes” in her Harry Potter books, she was using an alternate term for scones. I found this to be rather unusual, but not entirely unlikely, so I was satisfied with my explanation. For a while. I stumbled across a recipe for rock cakes at the Floo-Network and I knew I had to try them. ... Read More »
