Scones or scohnes?! Which are you? Being a northern girl, I’m definitely a Scones with an ‘o’ rather than an ‘oh’. Even though I love the comforting taste of scones and love how quick and easy they are to prepare, sometimes I just need something extra. A bit of tang, and extra aftertaste.
This recipe for lemon and lime scones is very versatile in that it can easily be adapted so its just lemon or just lime. I was a little alarmed the first time I made them as there seems to be far more fiddling about with them than is wise with a scone. I will never forget my first few attempts at scones baking – there are softer rocks holding up walls around the country. Interestingly, this recipe seems to work – the centre of the scones looks a little dense but is actually quite juicy and soft.
I used homemade lemon and lime curd because I needed to use up the fruit and whipped double cream – yep, once again, the diet is going well! I’ll post the recipe for the Lemon/Lime Curd next week – Its worth the wait – you’ll never buy it again!
Once again, I’m entering my recipe into Emily’s Recipe of the week. Last week, Emily was kind enough to feature my Lentil Curry so please do pop over and visit the other recipes …
