I know I’ve been MIA there’s so much happening in my life right now leaving me with little or no time to blog.  My heart is always on this blog whether I manage to squeeze in a post or not.  For now, I thought I would remind you to order some of the No Sugar Added jams if you haven’t tried one yet…….

My aunt has a great recipe of scones and unfortunately she refuses to share it with anyone.  I’ve even offered to pay for it.  That didn’t help.  Not even her children know what is in her recipe.  It’s a recipe she got from her employer back in the day.  She always bakes the scones and keeps them for visitors.

Few friends have been asking for a scone recipe.  Since I couldn’t get my aunt’s this one will have to do.  It goes well with the Grape, Pear & Rooibos Jam.  If you don’t mind the extra calories, you can go ahead and top up the jam with some cream.  Why don’t you bake some scones for your visitors this weekend?  Happy Baking!

    Can I substitute the low fat milk with full cream milk? Or will that ruin it?

      Hi Alice,

      Thank you for visiting the blog. You can go right ahead and do the substitution. It’ll improve the taste 🙂
