Delicious scones thanks Doves so much nicer than shop or other scones I’ve made. I bought a new lined muffin tin to use and it makes lovely soft scones with crispy outsides. To defrost, grill for a few minutes then leave to finish defrosting completely. An absolute joy to eat.

These scones are so close to scones made with wheat flour- I think the ground almonds give them a light texture and also a crunch to the edges. I added a sprinkle of flour after the milk was stirred in, just to make the mixture a bit less sloppy. Really delicious freshly baked and flashed in the oven on the second day. Also freeze very well. Will be making often as they are so quick and easy

Have made these several times now and i add chopped cherries, they are really nice. I will try some of the other scone recipes at some point but these are just so easy to make and taste nice
