When You Need Something Quick And Frugal

Click On The Picture For A Closer Look
Last week, I was pawing around at work, looking for something a bit on the sweet side. I wasn't prepared to buy chocolate from the office, so I went to my friend. He could only offer me a scone from the canteen. I was happy to receive it from him and promptly scoffed it.

It did the trick, though had more in common with a rock cake and desert sand than a scone.

I promised him that when Danny, H and I went to visit him, that I would bring him some of our home made scones as a 'thank you'. So this morning H decided he would make them and as a result we ended up with ten, beautiful, toothsome offerings, that were beyond easy to make. I will add that we added an egg wash and a little niblet of sugar on top before cooking.

They cost literally nothing to make, but were a perfectly presentable food to offer to friends. As well as this they are filling and useful for school lunches.

Let me know if you try them, or if you have your own scone/cake/easy bake/gift recipe.

Have a great day.


  1. Cream must be cheaper your way! :-)
    I use natural yogurt and it also produces a lovely batch of scones. I could just murder a couple now after looking at your delicious photos!

    1. I will try your way too, I have done a pizza base in this manner.

  2. I absolutely love scones, like you say cheap, sweet (but not too sweet) and filling.
    But the age old debate still rages...cream on the top or the bottom??
    I'm a cream on top girl! 😀

    1. Hmmm, I am a cream in any way sort o' lass :)

  3. I make several variations of scones, I will jot your recipe down.

  4. Thank you for the recipe, Franny.
