Sunday Scones

I first discovered scones many years ago when I was student teaching in Exmouth, England. There is nothing like a Devon Cream Scone……with afternoon tea…..very nice. But even without their delicious clotted cream, I find scones to be a simple, wholesome and tasty treat. They are very easy to make.

I use a recipe from The Vegetarian Epicure. I have adapted it over the years, but basically, you need buttermilk, flour, butter, an egg…and currants. I always add currants.


It is very easy.


Just mix all the ingredients in a bowl.


Turn out onto a board and knead for a few minutes.


Use a pastry cutter to cut into scones and they are ready for the oven.

At this point Fergus likes to help with the prewash. He is a very good helper.


The scones should be ready in about 20 minutes.

Just add butter and jam, or marmalade.

Make some coffee and you are ready. Sit down and enjoy!
