Caramel Scones

Caramel Scones

No matter how hard you try to be healthy, sometimes the long dark cold days of winter will get to you. Will spring just hurry up already?! Cold days call for a big, comforting caramel scone. Possibly to be shared with family. Possibly not.

Caramel Scones

These caramel scones were an experiment as I made some caramel sauce recently, which I used to drizzle over a gorgeous caramel bundt cake. There was still some left so I thought why not use caramel sauce in place of most of the milk in a scone mixture and see what happens? The recipe I used for the caramel sauce is here on Confessions of a Bright-Eyed Baker. Made only using granulated sugar, milk and a little salt.

Happily the scone experiment worked, and produced a gorgeous caramel colour scone just crying out for for a winter’s day. Perfect for a quick breakfast on the run, or tea-time treat.

Warmed and drizzled with more caramel sauce, it was also a comforting and sinful pudding. Custard would go really well for an even more comforting dessert.
