The debate on what makes the best scone recipes is widely discussed because as everyone knows, this partner to tea is taken very seriously in a proper English teatime.
Now of course, there are many opinions on what makes the tastiest scone. They come dry, moist, crumbly, sweet, rich, fluffy and heavy - to name a few characteristics.
What you add to your basic recipe is what gives it its texture and flavor, as well as lending them to be sweet or savory.
For savory scones , use herbs, cheese, seeds or nuts. For sweet ones add ingredients such as chocolate or berries and top with sugar crystals. For richness, add sweet cream and butter.
Or, of course, you don't have to add much - just smother your biscuit with lots of clotted cream and jam (my favorite way!).
