Sweet Melissa Mondays, yet again.

Wow, this day late thing is turning into quite the habit! I would have posted these earlier but my Sunday was spent at my mums making Sunday lunch while my boy helped my step dad fix the garage door. But, we fixed, we ate, we made Eton Mess, we slept. And after all, isn’t that what Sundays are all about?


So here they are, a day late but shh! I’ll be on time next week, I promise. This weeks recipe was chosen by Robin of Lady Craddock’s Bakery (I love the name of that blog, don’t you?), how she remains as fantastically buff as she does after making all those delicious treats is beyond me. Robin, may I please have your secret, my butt is increasing steadily! Robin chose a treat very dear to my heart, scones, orange scented scones to be precise. Scones are the quintessential English treat and the perfect accompaniment to afternoon tea which, in my humble opinion, should be a part of your everyday daily ritual! Gather together the scones, clotted cream, jam, pair with a beautifully brewed cup of tea and a good book and there you have it, heaven!

I added chocolate chips as orange just doesn’t seem right without a smidgen of chocolatey goodness. As per, don’t forget to check out the SMS girls for more delightful scones.

    Love your heart-shaped scones, Katie. I'm glad you liked them. You're right about the chocolating thing… how can adding chocolate to anything be a bad thing?I'll be posting my scones later today (obviously, I'm late too) :o)

    Thanks for baking along with me this week. I give most of my baked treats away or there is no way I could make what I do, LOL. I just love your heart shaped scones and am so glad you enjoyed them!

    Oh, isn't Sunday about taking it easy? I always end up posting very late. Your scones look gorgeous, nice touch with the chocolate. I definitely agree Robin needs to pass on her training tips!

    Aw, the heart shape is lush. I'm really loving the choc chip idea – need to make mine again and when I do I think choc chips are the way to go x

    Clotted cream, oh, I'm so jealous! I had some on a trip to the UK before and fell in love with it but alas, you can't buy it here in Canada, as far as I know. Anyway, I digress. Your scones look lovely, and I think the orange chocolate combination sounds delicious!
