Bad Weather and Scones

Here at scone-recipes.com we have found a noticable increase of visitors to our website when the weather is bad and lets face it there hasnt been much of a summer this year in many areas of the world including the UK and certain parts of the USA.

So why the rise in visitors when the sun goes in (or fails come come out at all!)?

Although the obvious reason of baking is something to do indoors and a pasttime not often enjoyed when the sun is shining, we think that scones are also a popular choice because they go so well with afternoon tea or a cup of your favourite coffee.

Why not try our afternoon tea english scone recipe, sampled by people all over the world!

Blueberry Scones - A Popular Choice

A recent survey carried out at a local cafe to a reader of scone-recipes.com identified blueberry scones as one of the most popular recipes.

Especially popular at parties, scones baked with blueberries can be enjoyed as a sweet desert with cream or ice cream topping.

We have recently added a new Blueberry Scones Recipe to the popular recipes section of our website.
