Scottish recipes - Treacle Scones

Scottish Treacle Scone

This recipe is a nice change from the regular scones I made earlier in the year see them here

It uses Treacle to give them a more malty, autumn like flavour

Treacle is a childhood favourite of mine, I used to eat it on bread. I really can't do that now, I am just not that used to the taste like I was when I was a kid

It is fine if added to something, like these Scones, but I can't eat it in the raw anymore

My Mum used to make Treacle Toffee, I really must look out her recipe and make that soon

So, these warm scones are wafting through my home as I am typing up this post, it is probably my favourite aroma..... home baking

If you would like to make them too

Here is the recipe I used

You will need

8oz/225g Self Raising flour
2oz/50g Butter or margarine
1oz/25g Fine Sugar
2 Tbsp Treacle (or Molasses)
