  • Summary

    Scones are popular in the U.K., especially in Scotland and England. The English mostly eat scones at tea time but the Scots tend to eat them all day long, with coffee for breakfast, with soup at lunch, as a mid-afternoon snack, and even at cocktail hour. In Scotland, you can find scones made from traditional white flour but bakers have become creative and started using oatmeal, cornmeal, and whole wheat flour. A milk product such as buttermilk or cream are traditionally used, along with fresh or dried fruit.
