Fruit Scones

I absolutely love a good scone. Not the supermarket ones though, they just taste like you’re eating a stone. I’m talking, large homemade fruit scones that are still warm from the oven.

Mrs F and I make it a ‘thing’ to go to our local garden centre for breakfast when she has a day off and they make the most delicious homemade fruit scones. They’re always warm and freshly baked that day. Yum!

We haven’t been for a while, as Mrs F doesn’t get many days off, but I did receive a phone call from my Mam one day and she told me she’d just baked some fruit scones. I thought, eyup’, I’m going to get some homemade fruit scones here… Well, I didn’t! She scoffed them down herself!… What’s all that about!? Strong words were had and informed her of my sheer displeasure in the fact she didn’t once think about her son. She replied with profanity that I couldn’t possibly repeat. Charming! So I decided to make my own. And yes, I did make my Mam some too… to ensue some guilt.

Time is of the essence

This recipe couldn’t be any simpler. In total it takes around 20 minutes to make and bake. You don’t have to use Sultanas, you could add glacier cherries, cheese, bananas, whatever you want really. if you’re feeling adventurous you could make them savoury.
