I love scones!
Sometimes all the extras with scones are a bit too much. I often use the maple syrup recipe but subsitiute the maple syrup with sugar and add a teaspoon of vanilla bean paste and a teaspoon if vanilla essence. These are fab with cream and raspberry jam!
Or I remove the maple syrup and replace with honey and add the rind of a lemon to make a plain scone a little magic.
Date scones are scones are made the same way replacing maple syrup with sugar and addding a handfull of chopped dates soaked in the milk which the scone recipe uses. Remember to warm it to achieve nice softened dates and allow to cool before adding to scone mix.
Below are some cinnamon, macadamia and raspberry scones!
