Single Serving Scone

By navigating through my website you certainly do have noticed…I love scones.

There are several recipes that I am very fond of:

I am so happy to have found my perfect mix between a baking powder biscuit and a scone in my Biscones‘ recipe, and always have a handy scones’ recipe like this one: Easy Scones, to through a little batch in minutes. For bigger occasions or just to share it with my family, I also have this super easy recipe of a Giant Shortcake with strawberry filling.

But the today recipe has one simple goal: making a single serving scone.


Because, and I think there are several of us back there, when we want something homebaked, on our own, and amazingly tasty, it is not that easy to cut down a recipe. But I made a whole bunch of scones’ recipes lately, and I can tell you: I was prepared.

Or not. You see, I made this recipe after a Teatime or break or whatever fits, at my Dad’s, because even if my blueberry cake was really good, I hadn’t ate much to eat something else back home. Because one of my favorite thing is to read while eating a fresh homemade scone. So we went back home, and the time my boyfriend got through the door…I had already almost finished making my scone.

Scone For One

I enhanced the clarity and colors on this photo just so you see the amazing flakiness of this scone. It is made with some fresh raspberries.

After cooling my scone a little while, we jumped on our bikes, went on a quiet spot nearby to enjoy a light breeze and a good book. I can’t see a better way to end our week-end. I do hope you had a good one too!

So, without further ado, here is the recipe.
