It seems another year has flown by and it’s International Scone Week again! The lovely Tandy over at Lavender and Lime is hosting this roundup again so pop on over to find links to all the scones everyone is baking.
My first thought was to make a white cheddar dill scone, I have plenty of the dill in the herb garden and it’s a good flavor combination. Plus I was making a tomato soup that day and they would go well together.
My favorite bakery up in Brevard, North Carolina has the best goodies anywhere I’ve been in the southeastern United States. For some reason bakeries around here are just lacking or specialize in the traditional American super sweet treats like heavily frosted cakes, cupcakes and cookies.
Well Bracken Mountain Bakery has excellent scones. I’m not talking about a Starbuck’s scone that is sweet with sweet icing on top. I’m talking a traditional scone that has a hint of sweetness. I can’t pick a favorite flavor there since they are all so delicious, but since I had bananas in the freezer I decided it was time to attempt recreating the banana chocolate chunk scone.
I am finally feeling human again and able to eat some food so it was time for a holiday bake. Jack and Ewan have their holiday program tonight so why not let them have a special holiday treat as an after school snack.
One of my favorite holiday flavor combinations is chocolate and peppermint. There is just something about it the screams Christmas to me. Growing up what kid didn’t love candy canes?!
It’s time for International Scone Week once again. Last year was my first time participating and I am excited to bring you another scone recipe this year. International scone week is the second week in August. The lovely Celia is one of the co-founders. This year Tandy at Lavender and Lime is hosting the annual event so please click on the link and check out all the other wonderful scone recipes being posted this week.
I had grand plans of developing a recipe for my favorite scone at Bracken Mountain Bakery but life got in the way as usual. Every time we go up to the mountains the bakery is on the must visit list, several times if the boys have it their way! They make a great chocolate banana scone which I always intend to make at home and never get around to.
