Scones & Jam

I am loving my new flexible working hours and I am trying hard to embrace being around the house during the day, so when hubby mentioned he really likes scones I thought I would make him some for morning tea.

Unfortunately past my experience with scones (think year 7 home ec class) always makes me think of rocks.

Despite my reservations I whipped out my old recipe (LOL, no not really I googled) and pre-heated the oven.

Apart from morning tea being at 11.45am the scones were not too bad. I still need more practise but I am sure hubby won't mind being my taste tester until I get it right.

Watch out CWA here I come :-)

Did you notice the homemade jam?

My lovely Aunt gave me three jars and the colour was so fabulous I couldn't resist snapping some pics.

I think the jam even made my scones look pretty good.


PS. I am actually tossing up the idea of joining the CWA is anyone esle a member?


  1. Your scones look delicious Nellie....have you tried buttermilk scones? They are a favourite in our house! Yummy jam too! CWA sounds like a fun idea...

  2. Hi Nellie I'm sure your scones were lovely and the colour of that jam is to die for. I always remember my mum telling me scones are fussy to make as they don't like being over worked. I haven't made scones for years but the last batch came out really well. I have a Margaret Fulton recipe which works every time if you'd like a copy. What is the CWA??

    How's your boss, is she still fabulous?? lol

    Take care....Michelle xo

  3. Yum, yum, the scones (and the jam) look deeeelicious!


  4. oh yummmm and really GORGEOUS pics!


  5. They look yummy Nellie - hope hubby enjoyed them. My no fail scone recipe is Lemonade Scones (the recipe is on my blog) - my nanna says the trick is not to overhandle them - as soon as the mix has come together, that's it. I think the CWA would be fun to join :)

  6. Yummy! I love this. The homemade jam looks so bright!

    Think I might have to have some at the weekend : )

  7. Your husband is going to enjoy having you working from home...

  8. I also don't know what CWA is! I have never tried to make scones because I'm afraid they will be dry and hard did yours turn out?

  9. You did a great job with those scones Nellie they look delicious and I bet your hubby loves having you home when you bake him yummy treats like this. xx

  10. Your scones look good and the homemade jam has a beautiful colour. I have thought about joining the CWA but it is only a thought:0)

  11. Would totally join with you Nellie!
