A couple of weeks ago I had come home from work, walked the dog and had an urge to bake. As I often do. My son had been off school with a stinking cold but this did not curb his appetite. He was really hungry and asked if I had any biscuits. I didn’t. I don’t buy them because no sooner than they are taken out of the carrier bag they are in my mouth and straight on my hips. Or if I make them they don’t last long either.
As I had lots of jobs to do I wanted to make something that would be quick and easy to prepare as well as taking a short time to bake. Scones always fit the bill for me and as I was feeling tired and sluggish myself, a scone with a cuppa would hit the spot!
Once again I thought I’d try a recipe from the latest Great British Bake Off book” The Great British Bake Off Everyday”. I had noticed a few scone recipes in the book and knew this would appeal to my chocolate loving son. These scones also had the extra addition of marmalade in them which sounded lovely.
Here’s how they were made:
The scones made a yummy alternative to fruit ones and were a great hit with all my family. I will definitely make them again. I didn’t tell my son there was marmalade in the scones itself as I can imagine he would not eat it. He did eat them with butter though.
