A warming cinnamon spiced treat for tea, this easy drop scone recipe does not require milk. We like these best when served warm and spread with butter and honey.

Made these today and they are delicious! I am very much converted to Buckwheat flour. Tastes great and doesn't have that awful grainy texture other gluten free flours have. Didn't have any oranges so used easy peelers which worked fine. I found the batter too wet so I added more flour at the end - I think my egg was very large. Served them with maple syrup - yum!
