Recipe Post N0.22- Walnut Scones*warning for nut allergies*

Hola chicos and chicas!

Firstly, I'd like to dedicate a massive thank you  for your endorsement and extremely positive feedback on my last
post(I'll leave a link at the end). 

Your kind words have really given me a confidence boost, especially as I've been wavy in consistency  over the past month. 

Anyhow, a new month has arrived, the last month of Summer in other words and so what I plan to do is make the most of life(I would say the most of summer but I feel England has had
their FAIR share of Summer this year and I'm certainly not wishing for more).

Moving onto this week's recipe, I'm still rather obsessed with baking healthily and so I bring you a light, nutty tasty teatime treat which is super easy to make at home and cater for everyone(except for those with nut allergies)

In order to concoct these delectable, walnutty scones, you'll need:

225g of self-raising flour( I substituting it for spelt flour to be extra healthy)

1 tsp of baking powder

50g of cubed butter

50g of walnuts,finely chopped

125/150ml of whole milk

1 egg,beaten


First and foremost, pre-heat the oven to 220℃/200℃ fan/Gas Mark 7. Lightly dust a baking sheet with flour. Mix the flour, baking powder and a good pinch of salt in a large bowl.

Add the butter and rub together with your fingertips until the mix resembles fine breadcrumbs. 

Add the chopped walnuts and the milk, mix together using a cutlery knife until clumping together, then top onto your work surface and squash together to form a ball.

*Try not to work the dough TOO much or the scones will be heavy.

Flatten the dough a little with your hand to make a disc roughly 3cm thick then use a sharp knife to cut into six triangles.

Transfer the triangular scones to a baking sheet,brush with a little beaten egg and then place a walnut half on each scone. 

Bake this for 15 minutes or until golden and puffed before transferring this to a wire rack to cool. Serve as desired, however the recipe suggested serve the scones with soft goat's cheese and fig jam.

  1. Oh, this is fun and especially as I've never heard of, or tasted, walnut scones before - what a tasty recipe idea, and something a little different from the norm! :) x

    1. Yes exactly that. And it tastes like a dream-I simply can't describe it-in the oven it smells kind of like bacon(πŸ˜…) and then when you eat it,it tastes salty but sweet.πŸ˜… Like I said it's really hard to describe.πŸ˜… Thanks for your comment.πŸ˜˜πŸ˜€

  4. Those scones sound yummy and it's good that they're healthy too!

    Yes, we've had a lot of hot, summery weather this year, but I must admit I'm missing the sun now it's raining a lot! Nice that it's cooled down though. Have a great end of week. :)


    1. Awhh thank you so much for your comment!!πŸ˜˜πŸ˜€ I thoroughly agree- I would say these scones are particularly healthy and really taste delicious-sweet or savory. 😊 To be honest, it's a RELIEF the weather has cooled down because I don't know how much longer I could go without baking for this blog.πŸ˜…
