The most popular recipe on my blog is the one for Olive Oil Scones. This was created for International Scone Week 2017. With over 2000 views in April alone, it just goes to show how popular scones are. I am hoping that International Scone Week 2020 will be just as popular.
Standing The Test Of Time
Starting in 2011, bloggers around the world gathered to make scones. To see how they came together, take a look at Celia’s post. She is the original hostess of this get together and if you want to read more about saving the planet or baking bread, head on over to her blog.

I have been looking forward to seeing a post about scone week.
I pulled out a recipe I used to make years ago, and I am going to give it a try and take photos for you <3
Oh, I am so glad you will take part! Looking forward to your post 🙂
Jack and I made our scone…and I have prepared a post to be published in August. Before then….if it is ok with you, I will mention in other posts you are hosting a scone-athon <3
Please do, the more the merrier. Thanks for the support.
Thanks for including my post, Tandy. I have a few recipes I’ve kept in reserve for ISW.
Looking forward to seeing them 🙂
I came back to check the dates. It’s next week and I’m glad about that.
Hope it is not putting you under stress?
the blueberry and coconut scones sound wonderful. My mom used to make scones with raisins and caraway seeds when I was little – that’s what I will always thing of when I think of scones…
I should try that!
That scone looks delicious.. 😉
Thank you Lisa 🙂
I’m just one person, but scones are pretty unfamiliar to me, and I never saw them until a few years ago, just heard of them in British fictional accounts. A few bakeries I shop at now have them, but I’m never as pleased with them as with other pastries.
In fact, as far as I know, scones are much less popular in the US than in other English-speaking countries. I don’t know anything about non-English-speaking countries, or how to learn more about what people make. I hope American readers will learn from the recipes that appear as a result of this event! And I would love to hear from others about their experience with eating them — long ago and recently.
be well… mae at maefood.blogspot.com
When I think of scones in an American context, I always think of biscuits. They are not the best pastry items to buy as they need to be fresh to be enjoyed, in my opinion.
I’m super keen to try your olive oil scones since I’ve always thought of scones as a buttery item! Looking forward to ISW 2020 😀
It’s amazing how many hits this recipe gets.
Who knew scones were so popular. Actually, that is not right…after all what would an English afternoon tea be without them.
thank goodness you reminded me about ISW! hasn’t it come quickly? i will be joining in but it’s going to take me a while. we are going away for the weekend coming up (all kosher), so it will be closer to the end of ISW before i get my post up. cheers and keep safe
Enjoy your weekend away!
Thanks for the reminder about ISW. As Sherry says, it’s come around so quickly. I’ll get my thinking cap on and try and get a recipe posted next week.
Thank you Choclette 🙂
Thanks for the reminder – I will see how I go this year – it has been so crazy that I am not finding enough time to blog but if I can will definitely send you some scones! And if not I will be checking out the scones.
I hope you are staying safe – I have seen that South Africa’s Corona Virus numbers seem to have shot up so it must be pretty tough times for you and am sending you warm wishes for good health and good luck.
Thank you. Please don’t stress if you can’t make any. We are safe and where I live, the curve has flattened. We have a great recovery rate which is very encouraging. Stay safe xx
Ooh I didn’t know it was international scone week! I’ll have to make some tonight!
Looking forward to seeing what you come up with 🙂
Hi Tandy, thanks for the invite! I’m in with my cheese and onion scones: https://the-veghog.blogspot.com/2020/08/cheese-and-onion-scones.html
Have a great week, I will be following the event. Greetings from Copenhagen!
Thanks for taking part – will pop on over to take a look now 🙂
I managed it the other day, but keep forgetting to let you know. Thanks again for hosting and encouraging me to get creative with scones. https://tinandthyme.uk/2020/08/vegan-wholemeal-scones/
Thank you again for taking part 🙂
Hi Tandy – here is my scone post for #ISW2020 – https://gggiraffe.blogspot.com/2020/08/olive-pineapple-and-cheese-scones.html – thanks for continuing to inspire me to experiment with scone recipes. I will look forward to seeing the rest of the ISW2020 scones. (Sorry it is a little late.)
Thank you so much for taking part Johanna 🙂
