How to Make a Proper Scone




Scones - for Afternoon Tea or Elevenses or Your Morning Cuppa

As The Resident Tea Snob over at that wonderful Britophile blog Smitten by Britain, I've taken it upon myself to point out the necessity of every self-respecting Britophile knowing How to Make a Proper Scone as well as a proper cup of tea! Of course, you'll find my Classic Scones recipe right here at Delightful Repast, but I've shared a different version of it in the guest post. I think you'll like it!

Lovely Jean! I haven't had a decent scone in ages. Living in France they don't really have such things here - Starbucks sells... something... called a "scone", but it's more like a dry, powdery lump with hard raisin pellets inside :)

Jean said...

Thank you, Charles! Yes, few places here have good scones. They're usually very dry, as you say, and overly sweet AND, worst of all, made with shortening.

Wonderful and I have to concur with Charles - what they call a scone at Starbucks is not even close! I am facebooking this!

Jean said...

Thanks, Kim! Spread the word - the more people who find out what a real scone is supposed to be like, the more places will serve scones we like!

Always happy to have a proper scone recipe, as you can never find good ones anywhere, unless you have an old English auntie. I will definitely be trying these!

Jean said...

Well, just consider me your (getting!) old English auntie! Hope you enjoy the scones as much as we do.

I've always been a bit intimidated by scones.. I don't know why, but I think this post just might change that!

Jean said...

I hope so, Jenn! If you run into any difficulties, just let me know and I'll talk you through it. The recipe will be so easy for you the second time, if not the first.
