Orange Scented Scones - Sweet Melissa Sundays

Gosh I've been so busy with Pies lately that I've neglected my lovely Sweet Melissa Baking group!

Orange Scented Scones sounded like a lovely easy recipe that couldn't go terribly wrong. Now I did want little scones but the mix was a bit wet and these came out looking a bit more like cookies. I should have added more flour, but was sticking to the recipe (for once!)


If you would like the recipe please visit Robin of Lady Craddock's Bakery


These tasted ok with some lovely Seville Orange Marmalade and whipped chocolate cream, but when it comes to scones, I'll be sticking to Lemonade Scones - can't be beaten for simple, delicious, light, flaky scones.

  4. Thanks for the lovely comments. I should have reduced the cream and added a bit more flour - c'est la vie!
