Scones: Avid Bakers Challenge

This months ABC challenge is scones!  
Have I told you that I love love LOVE scones!  The recipe that we were to use is a basic scone recipe and we were to choose how we wanted to flavor them.  I decided to make a Lemon Glazed Strawberry Poppy Seed Scone.  I added strawberries, poppy seeds, lemon zest and glazed them with a bright lemon drizzle.  These scones were easy to make, as most scones are, the flavors I chose were beautiful together.  Especially with the lemon curd I hanging around in my fridge leftover from my lemon macarons.  So yummy!  I halved the recipe and it made 8 nice size scones which will be wrapped up and put in the freezer.  

If you have never tried scones...please do!  They are so easy and make a special breakfast treat.  You will find the recipe on the King Arthur Flour site here.  And if you would like to take a peek at what the other bakers did with this challenge go here.

Next challenge is a strawberry filled angel food cake!  So reminiscent of a cake my mom would make for birthdays!  Can't wait to give that a try!

Until then,


  1. I love how you paired your strawberry poppy seed scones with lemon curd. I can just imagine how tasty that is. Great job!

  2. I love all the flavor combinations- they sound delicious!

  3. I love all things lemon, especially curd....combining it with strawberries in a scone makes it even better!!

  4. What wonderful flavors. Strawberry, lemon and poppy seeds must have tasted great.
