Scones On Sundays

Scones don't really make a hearty enough breakfast for a hardworking man like mine. If they did, I'd certainly make them a lot more often. A couple of warm scones with butter and jam suits me just fine though, and if there's a pot of hot black tea nearby, well, all the better. 

We don't usually have a big breakfast on Sundays, which makes it the perfect day for making scones. They're fast and easy, so I can throw them together right after church. And I do mean throw... one of the most important tips for successful scone-making is to handle the dough as little as possible.

These are next on my list of scrumptious scones to try...
Now, I wonder what kind of tea would go best with each of these scones? Decisions, decisions...

  1. I'm having a CAbi party in August... Tea,desserts,scones. I'll make 2 or 3 of these and let you know how I do! Tracey

  2. @Tracey: That sounds like so much fun... right up my alley! Definitely let me know how it goes! :)

  3. Hi Stephanie: I have a problem. My husband's favorite birthday cake is Pineapple Upside Down Cake. His mother made it for him every year she was alive. My problem is, I HATE pineapple upside down cake. Now, I don't mind making a cake I don't like for my sweet husband; however, I'd like to find a healthier (not so sickenly sweet) version to make. Any ideas?

    1. I know what you mean about "sickenly sweet"... they can be a bit much even for me (and I like pineapple upside-down cakes)! I found this one that sounds like a few giant steps better than what we're used to (fresh pineapple, real caramel, etc.):

      ...if you make it, let me know how it goes! :)


Take a moment to say "Howdy!"... I'd love to hear from you!
