If you have been around here for some time, you may remember a really old recipe for Jam & Cream Scones that came about when I fancied baking but had no eggs. Well, thanks to the 12yo’s obsession with making omelettes, that situation came about again this afternoon. By some miracle, I had some white chocolate that had reached its Best Before Date (I know, how?) so decided to incorporate it into some Egg-free scones. And so my Brown Sugar, White Chocolate and Roasted Pecan Scones were born … and eaten.
As with all scones recipes, the key to success is making sure the mixture is handled as little as possible. Slightly more difficult with this recipe than traditional plain scones as there are more ingredients to add but still possible. These are definitely what you would call ‘rustic’. The brown sugar makes their appearance darker than most scones. We spread some melted chocolate and sprinkled pecans over the top of ours but they are just as good plain.
Bake of the Week
If you have been eagerly awaiting a new #BakeoftheWeek linky then thank you so much for your patience. Horrendous technical difficulties around here for some time now but for now we are sorted. There may be more work to come but for the time being, I’m luxuriating in a blog that works and a computer that isn’t quite as slow as it was.
My featured bake from our last linky goes to Glutarama with these beautiful Gluten Free Vegan Blueberry Frangipane Tarts
Thank you as ever to all you lovely people who have stuck with us during the computer crisis of 2019, especially the lovely Jenny from Mummy Mishaps who is one of the world’s most patient people!
1. Making the most of Blood Orange Season, Jo’s Kitchen Larder made her Gluten-Free Orange & Almond Cake
2. The perfect donation for the PTA, Apply to Face’s Chocolate Loaf Cake – No wonder she was sad to part from it!
3. Leaving us yearning for the summer months is my co-host, Mummy Mishaps with this Strawberry & White Chocolate Bundt Cake
4. For a cake with a crunch, The Baking Explorer has remade a family favourite, Crunchie Drip Birthday Cake
