The Book of Scones - Tried and Tested - Part Six

This project to bake all 50 scone recipes in the National Trust Book of Scones is now over the half-way mark. Let's continue with scones 26-30!

The Fig, Orange & Walnut Scone
There are many scone recipes in the Book of Scones that surpass expectations and this is one of them. Lovely texture combined with a fantastic combination of flavours. I highly recommend that you give this one a go.

The Hot Cross Scone
Don't wait for Easter to try these - although if you're really worried about people giving you funny looks, maybe pipe a 'B' on the top instead of a cross and call them Hot Bob's Scones? Whatever you do, just give them a try as they are utterly delicious:

The Apricot Scone
A lovely light and fruity scone! Delicious.

The Blueberry & Lemon Scone

The Mulled Wine Scone
The downside of baking mulled wine scones in August is that I had to make the mulled wine as I couldn't find any ready-made stuff. This made my entire house smell of Christmas for 24 hours. Actually, there was no downside.


And with that we have just 20 scones to go! Those of you that prefer a savoury scone can start getting excited as that's what coming next. In the meantime you can get a copy of the Book of Scones at any National Trust shop or from Amazon.
