I love going out for afternoon tea, it’s one of my favourite pastimes (I’ll write about some of my favourite ones) but alas it’s expensive.
It doesn’t stop me wanting one though!
Although it’s easy to buy or make cupcakes and Victoria sponge you need your scones freshly made.
Therefore I decided I wanted cherry scones… And had to make some.
The only thing I don’t like about scones is the baking soda in them as it means I can only eat one before they make my teeth feel fluffy, but this recipe doesn’t use any so you can eat as many as your stomach can handle.
These are definitely best eaten warm, but if not all straight away then the second day is good too. You can just butter them but to really enjoy them then good jam and clotted cream is best. I didn’t have any clotted but I did make whipped cream.
Yummy warm cherry scones
The original recipe I used came from the Good Food website (link below), however I did swap the raisins for glacé cherries so I have altered the recipe to be what I did.
For the inside filling I used a tub of extra thick double cream mixed with a little vanilla extract and a good strawberry jam.
