We love eating these scones with an additional drizzle of a good quality Scottish heather honey and some chopped up fresh fruit.

Tips for making this recipe:

  • these scones are pretty easy to throw together so I don’t have much to offer in the way of tips for this recipe.
  • they make a great quick breakfast and if you want to make them ahead of time you can pop them in the toaster the next day or under the grill to reheat. They are pretty sturdy so reheat quite well.
  • this recipe only makes about 4 medium or 8 small so if you want to make more I would double or triple up the recipe.
  • these drop scones are delicious served up with whipped cream, cream cheese, chopped fruit and even an additional drizzle of honey or maple syrup.
  • why not make these sweet scones part of a delicious traditional Scottish breakfast with grilled bacon, fried eggs, mushrooms, black pudding and maybe an additional drizzle of maple syrup or heather honey over it all! Yum yum!
