“A simple but delicious recipe that takes no time to make and can be quite diverse. Often before combining dry and wet ingredients, I separate the two in half by weight and then add the flavour (1/2 of what is listed in recipe) to create two different types of scones. The original recipe came from Company's Coming cookbook but was modified to suite personal preference.”
