Love these. Have made a few times. They do come out more like cookies than scones for me- quite flat and the texture but I don’t mind either way as they’re delicious and easy to make.

The scones don't really rise unfortunately so you would need two of them to make a proper scone. I find these recipes use a lot of baking powder which I can taste coming through. I also didn't have an orange so I used lemon instead which gave a nice favour. Overall a nice result but I would tweek.

I just tried this recipe and it was amazing and so moist. Just put a dab of butter on top yummo

These scones are delicious, the only problem is that they are very crumbly and difficult to cut and put butter or cream etc on.
If you do not need to avoid eggs, it may be worth substituting some of the orange juice/water for an egg maybe?
