Tea Scones

A family recipe. Well, a recipe I got from my family. For all I know it came from a Delia Smith book.

As yet untested, but very nice when other people have made them.

Now that summer is approaching and afternoon tea is more appealing this recipe is due a test run.

  • 25g caster sugar

    Scones are great. But I’m interested in obscure British baked goods. Obscure to me, maybe. There used to be a guy from England at my local farmer’s market (Seattle) and he had things like oat cakes, ginger shortbread, eccles (?) cakes, and some kind of bread with sea weed I was too afraid to try. Any recipes for more obscure and delicious baked goods that will impress my friends with their taste and exoticness?
