    Chestnut Scones

    I am proud of my ‘Azuki Scones’. I think they are delicious, and they are one of my favourite Scones. However, my husband hates Sweet Azuki Paste. I know many Europeans people don’t enjoy Azuki Beans cooked very sweet like fruit jam. Today I was actually thinking of making Azuki Sones, which my husband won’t …

    Yoghurt Scones

    My family’s consumption of Yoghurt has dropped after we stopped eating Granola, that is a very high calorie food. I have been making Greek Yoghurt at home for many years, but I must say I have to stop making it as nobody is eating it. The reason why I made these Yoghurt Scones was simple. …

    Queen Elizabeth II’s Drop Scones

    Queen Elizabeth II died at her home in Balmoral, Scotland, on September 8, 2022. She was Queen of the United Kingdom, but also Queen of Australia as well.

    Azuki Scones

    I have made all sorts of Scones in my life. I often add Fruit, Chocolate, Nuts and Seeds, Pumpkin, Banana, Coffee, Earl Grey Tea, Matcha, etc. Why have I never ever thought of adding ‘Tsubu-an’ (Sweet Azuki Paste)? Today I had some leftover ‘Tsubu-an’. I was planning to use it for a cake, then I …

    Blueberry & White Chocolate Scones

    Today I was organising my old recipes that I wrote many years ago, then I came across this ‘Blueberry & White Chocolate Scones’ recipe. It was nearly 20 years ago, I fell in love with a Blueberry & White Chocolate Scone that I bought from a local bakery. Because it was quite expensive, I tried …

    Earl Grey Tea Scones

    I was a little disappointed with these ‘Earl Grey Tea Scones’. I expected the Scone would smell amazing, but the fragrance of Earl Grey Tea was not strong. It was subtle, but still beautiful. I wondered what flavour of Icing would be good for these Scones. I chose Orange. I used 100% natural juice squeezed …

    Lorna’s Butter-less Scones

    My husband’s Great-Auntie Lorna gave me har Scone recipe nearly 30 years ago. It was a very simple one. Following her instructions, I have never failed to make high risen Scones ever since. Recently I have discovered another Lorna’s Scone recipe, that requires No Butter at all. Can Scones be made without Butter? I tried …

    Savoury Buttermilk Cheese Scones

    My Scone recipes are all based on Auntie Lorna’s scone recipe. Lorna’s scones are made with basic ingredients only. I started to use Buttermilk instead of regular Milk, and the Buttermilk version makes even nicer Scones. Today I added some grated Cheese and Chives to make these Savoury Scones. Lorna’s recipe has been evolving into …

    Pumpkin Scones

    All my Scone recipes are based on Auntie Lorna’s Scone recipe. I needed to alter the amount of Milk for these scones because I added 1/2 cup pureed Pumpkin. It is a coincidence that these Pumpkin Scones have a strong resemblance to the famous coffee shops’ scones. I have never been to those coffee shops …

    Chocolate & Coffee Scones

    Here is another variation of Auntie Lorna’s Scone. All my scone recipes are based on Auntie Lorna’s Scone recipe, because that’s the first and the only recipe that I have learned. According to the amount of dry ingredients and other wet ingredients, the amount of Milk needs to be altered. Once you know the texture …

    Lemon & White Chocolate Scones

    Our next-door neighbours are very kind and they regularly share their garden harvests with us. Now I have a bucketful of Lemons! I am so grateful because our lemon trees have never produced fruit and I always have to buy them. Today I baked these Lemon flavoured scones based on Auntie Lorna’s Scone recipe. I …
