Cherry, Chocolate And Ginger Scones

These cherry, chocolate and ginger scones aren't you usual type of scone. They are packed full with flavour. Whilst my husband insisted on putting butter on his, it really isn't required. I made them small in a hope that I wouldn't eat too many. Yeah that didn't work! They are very moreish!

Cherry, Chocolate And Ginger Scones

They are really easy to make and I based the scone recipe on this one from Delia. The stem ginger gives them a really grown up taste, but I leave this out on the ones for the children.

  2. Wow, what an exciting flavour combination, I would never have thought of adding all these delicious flavours to one scone mix..defo need to try these.

  3. What a great flavour combination! I don't think I've ever thought to put ginger in scones before but I can see it would go beautifully with the cherries.

  4. Scones are such a classic and whether they are flavoured or plain it doesn't really matter! I love the sound of yours and that they are packed full of cherries, stem ginger (which is one of my favourite ingredients in baking ever) and of course chocolate! YUM! Thank you fo sharing with #BakingCrumbs :)

  5. Scones are a great bake at anytime, I have had cherry and chcolate in a scone before but i bet the ginger is a nice additon.

  6. I do love flavoured scones! There are so many different combinations but I just don't think people experiment enough with them!
