Recipe For Yoghurt Scones

I am not one for idly waiting around. I need to feel like I am busy all of the time. To this end, I often make more than one recipe at a time which is why I can never work out how long one dish takes me to make. I also have WordPress on my phone so that when Dave is watching something on TV that I’m not interested in, I can type up blog posts. The other day while waiting for a friend, I set up the WiFi Hotspot at the shopping centre on my new smart phone. As she still had not arrived after that was done I decided to add myself to Instagram. I’m very new to it, and must say it’s quite fun. I have started off by growing my followers organically, but if you would like to follow me, that would be great. The other thing that would be great is if you would make these yoghurt scones. These are by far the best scones I’ve ever made and I am sure you will agree once you taste them. I think the yoghurt I used made them so good. I only use a thick Greek style yoghurt and if you have some idly doing nothing in your fridge, then use it to make these scones.

  1. They look great. I always used to make or buy flavoured ones but my children love plain ones so I really need to have a go at making some soon.

  2. I love using yogurt in baked goods but would have never thought to do so with a scone. Hmmm… Scones are generally full of butter and cream (which is why I LOVE them so much), but I feel myself itching to bake a scone with yogurt now!

    I need to sign up for Instagram, but haven’t prioritized my time to do so. I will be sure to follow you when I do!

  3. I like the idea of using yoghurt. You see many recipes that use cream but not yoghurt. I only joined Instagram a few weeks ago too. I’m following you now but as @AZGuidebook

  4. Tandy, I love a good scone! And I think the addition of a bit of yogurt or buttermilk makes them extra good. I usually make my scones wedge-shaped, so I loved seeing that here.

  6. Glad you are on the IG bandwagon! And these scones look lovely, Tandy! I have a coworker who makes mayo biscuits – just mayo and flour and a tad bit of milk – he swears the mayo is magical – but I prefer your use of yogurt in these!
