Do you follow #TwitterBakeAlong? If not, you should! Each week they have a challenge for bakers. It is great fun to bake and see everyone else’s bakes. For Afternoon Tea Week the challenge was scones.
Of course, the debate rages on of how to pronounce scone and whether there is jam then cream or cream then jam (I’m the latter). To do something out of the ordinary, we decided to create a Texas Twist on Afternoon Tea with cornmeal scones.
This recipe only makes four (huge) scones but the recipe easily scales to however many you would like to feed.
It is easy to build a Winnie the Pooh themed picnic around Cornmeal Scones. Indeed we call them picnic scones because they travel well and can be paired with our Southern Fried Chicken and coleslaw to round out a full picnic menu.
There cannot be enough honey to go with Cornmeal Scones. One might think that cinnamon honey butter and then extra honey is too much honey but that isn’t possible.
