A truly magnificent fruit scone served with butter and jam in the Apples for Jam tearoom in Melrose. With a scone so fresh and delicious, the accompanying condiments seemed superfluous.
The knobbly beast shown below is a dark chocolate and raspberry scone from the Little Bakery in South Queensferry. I’ve enjoyed several of these treats over the past few months, and recently tried making them at home. Alas, mine were nowhere near as good as the Little Bakery’s. I don’t know what their secret is but their scones are sublime.
