Some Homemade Scones and Lemon Curd!

Hi - I've not been on here much lately, life is just whizzing by and I don't seem to be getting time to do anything to really write about!!!

I've been wanting to bake some scones for a while and I know that alot of people on MSE had been raving about Karen's scone recipe so I thought I'd give it a go.  You can find the instructions here along with some other lovely recipes.  Karen has done some easy to follows instructions with photos.  I have to say these scones tasted delicious and they have not gone dry despite being a couple of days old.  I made them as a tester as I want to bake another batch on Saturday for my birthday as I plan to have afternoon tea with my family.  I will cut them alittle thicker on Saturday as I think they will be higher then!

Last night I made Lemon Curd, following Karens recipe which can be found here - very easy to make with Karen's fab photo tutorial and the taste is just wow wow wow!!!!!   I don't think I will ever want shop bought Lemon Curd again.  I teamed it up with one of the scones and it was gorgeous!!!  I liked it more than strawberry jam so this will be my new favourite scone topping!!  I will be making some cupcakes for Saturday and injecting some of this curd into them as well as putting a jar on the table to go with the scones!!!!  Of course on Saturday there will be clotted cream as well to go with the scones!!!!

Do take a look at Karen's blog as she has some other lovely recipes including a lovely Farmhouse Cake which she has named 'Alice Cake' after the grandmother from whom the recipe was handed down from. 

Thanks Karen for your lovely recipes!!!!!


  1. I so wish I could eat eggs the lemon curd sounds delicious and the pictures on Karens blog are gorgeous!

    Hope all is well with you

  2. Glsd you enjoyed the recipes Angie. The Lemon Curd was always a winner in the WI competitions. Its gorgeous on toast and no need for butter. Actually I could just eat it from the jar with a spoon!! xx

  3. I have been looking for a good scone recipe for a while now. I tend to make mine either too high so that they dont bake as well in the middle or to shallow and they are far to awkward to cut!! Have a lovely tea party at the weekend chick xx

  4. Yummy stuff! Pity I'm dieting :(

    Have a fab day on Saturday, hope you get loads of crafty stuff.
