Playing with flavors is one of my favorite pass time activities. This is another scones recipe that I tried and thought it is a keeper. A good flaky scone is always a winner at the table. What could be better than a scone to have with your evening cup of tea? An infused scone.
My latest obsession is infusing food with flavors specially with tea. It has become a bit of a trend followed by numerous cooking shows. However, I quite like the idea of infused teas and why not use that tea to infuse some scones?
What I have done is soak up a hand full of sultanas in hot tea. Tea can be anything you fancy, I have tried this with earl grey, lady grey, lemon grass and all of them turned out nice and aromatic.
It is simple. Just brew your choice of tea (a tea with unique smell works better) in a teapot and then strain and reheat the tea. I then let the sultanas soak in the tea for about an hour. Then simply strain and toss these sultanas in your scones dough. If you like a stronger infusion, use some of the tea as well.
When the scones are being baked, the whole house fills with the sensational fragrance that will make your mouth water.
As the scones are already so good and sweet with all the sultanas, you can eat them as is. But some jam wouldn’t hurt and a dollop of cream too if you fancy.
Give these a go and let me know if you liked it. Post any questions in the comments or on Instagram, I will try my best to reply to them all.
