This is an easy peasy adaptation of the fast scone recipe that I was reared on; I am Protestant Irish and for some reason when we are expecting guests we bake scones or cakes and we make jam, or a damn good sponge cake or apple tart…. we bake…. I still bake when I am expecting guests; I have no idea why it is automatic!
As a rule I rarely eat carb rich starchy foods like this however, there is always a time and a place for a treat and when you can keep this home-baked and made from real ingredients I say go for it! I plastered home-grown strawberries and cream on mine this evening. Because why not life is too short.
