Comforting Scones

When the rain outside is lashing down and my mood is low I turn to baking. These sultana scones took less than 30 minutes to make from start to finish. Recipe from here.

I substituted the flour for wholemeal self-raising and brushed the tops with single cream. Split while they are still warm and spread with butter or clotted cream and jam. Delicious!

We had a miserable day here too!Your scones look lovely - mine are never as good as they should be. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Maybe I'll try your recipe.

Yum, they look lovely Simone. Might bake some myself now I've seen those. Perfect food for this grotty weather isn't it? Hope you have a lovely weekend x

These look very perfect for the first of October. Oh, lovely- I'm sure I can catch the aroma all the way here! We're having a birthday weekend, so nothing beyond the basic bun/cake mixture tonight!

I've been feeling low today mainly because of a cold but also the rain - now one of those lovely scones would have cheered me up - they look so tasty:)

Hope you are feeling better again soon, baking helps me to when feeling low or listening to some happy music :-)

Your scones look great - nicely risen and even. I too resorted to baking in the rain ysterday. Sort of comforting, isn't it? Warms up the kitchen too!
