I would happily sit and eat an entire pan of cinnamon rolls as I love the flavours but as it’s probably not a good idea, I came up with using similar flavours in a scone. I have a recipe here for a Cinnamon Swirl Bread which is totally heavenly – here’s the link: https://www.cozebakes.com/2018/01/18/cinnamon-swirl-bread/
and wanted to use the same flavours with a similar swirl result in a scone. It worked really well so I’m very happy with it though I’ll definitely be going with a thicker glaze next time. Well you’ve got to haven’t you???
I’ve tried making scones using fresh strawberries before but ended up with squashed strawberries and a pinkish coloured dough so haven’t gone back to revisit that recipe until now …. I got a punnet of really sweet and delicious Irish strawberries and really wanted to make strawberry scones so off I set to do a little research.
As with a lot of my baking, I also wanted to make a Gluten Free version too so I’ve included both below so everyone can enjoy these amazing scones.
They veer slightly away from ingredients a lot of us would traditionally use for making scones but the result was a really rich and creamy scone with chunks of strawberries throughout so I’m putting this recipe down as a success!
I’ve tried a few scone recipes and found this one and this method to be the most successful for me every time. Great big high scones are a pleasure to eat and this recipe is so easy to adapt so you can make different types of scones to suit your occasion.
Scones are really best eaten on the day they are made unless you freeze them and then you can pop them in a moderate oven for about 10 minutes to have lovely, fluffy perfect scones again. I’ve made the ones in the pictures here a Lemon flavoured scone with a Lemon Glaze but will give alternative flavour options for you to choose.
