Strawberry Scones

Strawberry Scones are scones made with fresh strawberry puree. Scone is a small English quick bread of Scottish origin served with tea.

Some more interesting breakfast options include shortcake scone, muffins or quickbread, zucchini bread, etc

On Sunday I had V’s friends coming over for breakfast after their respective yoga class and I was wracking my brains to figure out what to serve. 1 hour of Yoga leaves one quite hungry. I wanted to prepare something filling and yet at the same time not the usual poha, idli stuff. These scones came in handy then.

Scone is a small English quick bread of Scottish origin served with tea. Since I have not been able to buy my loaf tin yet, I jumped at the option of baking anything other than a cake. :) I made many changes in the original recipe to suit my needs & ingredients. The result was quite good & different. I would love to try them again with some more variation.

The scones were really good and something new for all of us. I loved making it as much as they loved eating it. :)

I have never tasted treacle syrup, so do not know how sweet it is, we all like our sugar on the lighter side & felt it to be perfect. So if you are one of those with real sweet tooth & do not have access to treacle syrup then you surely would need to increase the sugar to atleast 50 g.

    Hi!
    Glad you liked my recipe. Self-raising flour doesn’t have any salt, to make 1 cup, use 2 teaspoons of baking powder for each 150g/6oz/1 cup plain flour. Sift the flour and baking powder together into a bowl before using, to make sure the baking powder is thoroughly distributed (or you can put both ingredients into a bowl and whisk them together).
    Also, the ingredient I made mine with in the first place was treacle, which is also known as molasses.
    Happy scone-making :)
