3 Easy, Tasty Scone Recipes for Any Day of the Week

Easy, tasty scone recipes

There’s nothing better on a Sunday morning than a fresh-baked scone. Unless it’s a toasted scone with jam on a Wednesday morning. Either way, we’ve got three scone recipes you’re gonna love.

Scones are underrated, as far as we’re concerned. Show us a baked good that can be made sweet or savoury, comes together in no time and is the perfect vehicle for any manner of toppings.

Can’t think of one, can you? Scones. It’s all about the scone.

That’s why we’ve rounded up three of our favourite scone recipes for you to try at home. They’re the best warm out of the oven on a weekend morning, but they typically store well for snacking later in the week, too. Bonus: These are great recipes for getting kids into the kitchen, because they’re simple but also hands on. Let your kiddos get their hands in there!

First up, there’s nothing basic about this classic…

Cream scones with berry jam

Cream Scones

Made with just five ingredients, these scones take next to no time. They are also super easy to customize — the base recipe isn’t super sweet, so you can finish with sweet or savoury toppings, or you can add mix-ins, like blueberries, sharp cheese or chocolate chips, right into the dough.

Scones with currants and honey

Scones with Currants and Honey

You won’t believe it, but these scones are actually gluten-free. The oats add a lovely texture, and the currants and honey add a subtle sweetness that is glorious with a cup of tea.

Cheddar-basil scones

Cheddar and Basil Scones

We love a good cheesy, herby scone and this one ticks all the boxes. Use old or extra-old cheddar for major flavour, or tone it down to a more mild cheese if the kids aren’t into the sharpness. Don’t skimp on the sea salt, or spread a layer of salted butter on these beauties when they’re fresh out of the oven.
