Scones by Mangocheeks

Mangocheeks has a wonderful blog where she talks about what she has cooked, where she has travelled and what she is up to in her garden.  It is a very inspirational read with wonderful photos.  Well, this morning I took a quick look and found her latest post was about Apple and Blackberry scones and they looked absolutely delicious.

At the weekend I saved a couple of wasp eaten apples from the tree and was wondering what I could do with them.  I knew that I had to make these scones the minute I saw them.  I didn’t have any blackberries as there has been a bull in the field where I normally gather my blackberries so I substituted frozen blackcurrants.  The scones were deliciously light and very tasty.  I spread mine with butter and damson jam and invited my parents for a spontaneous lunch time treat.  The weather is having its last kick of the summer and so we had a very enjoyable time eating these in the garden with a cup of tea.  Thank you Mangocheeks.  If you would like the recipe pop over to visit Mangocheeks’ wonderful blog.

  1. Another great recipe from MangoCheeks, but I do like your apple and blackcurrent combination. Was thinking about baking scones and inviting some folk over for tea as it’s my last couple of days of holiday – have apples, have blackcurrents in the freezer – might bakc.

  2. Love scones with currants, but I do have blackberries in my freezer—I’ll head over now to Mangocheeks blog!

  3. I love her scones too! They tasted amazing!

  4. Just want to say it again. Thank you so, so much. I am so honoured and humbled by your lovely post. Thank you so much for sharing my blog with your readers and your kind words.

    I love your variation of your scones too. Isn’t it wonderful how recipes evolve from one cook to another. PS I do have some blackcurrants in my freezer, so who knows.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  5. Lovely! (But I can’t be the only one who giggled at ” I didn’t have any blackberries as there has been a bull in the field ” can I? …. what a brilliant – and truly valid – reason for not having blackberries! )

  6. How lovely to flavour scones instead of making a plain scone. Shame about the bull, I would have kept well away too!
