Our Nan has always been a fabulous scone baker. In particular, date scones. They taste utterly delicious still warm from the oven and spread with (probably a bit too much) butter.
Today we’ve had a go at making our own date scones. It’s never really been our forte, though our sister did seem to inherit excellent scone-making ability. That said, we are rather pleased with today’s efforts. They are far from the prettiest scones we’ve ever seen, but they certainly taste yummy and we reckon Nan will be proud. We just tried one with a cup of coffee.
Does your mum or Nan have a specialty that you’re yet to try? Get cooking good looking.
