Hot Cross Scones – For Easter

A great alternative, at Easter these Hot Cross Scones have that tradional Easter flavour but with the wonderful scone texture, associated with so many afternoon teas.  Having made the traditional Hot Cross Buns for both my blog and my Youtube channel in previous years I decided to try something a little different for this year.

Devonshire Scones

Scones, filled with cream and jam are a lovely treat with afternoon tea.  I really enjoy them, and found a nice, and easy, recipe from Mary Berry . The recipe will make a good 18 – 24 scones, with a 5cm cutter, depending on the thickness of the dough.  They take no time at all to […]
