I got the urge to make scones after reading a post in a thermomix facebook group. I'd made many a scone years ago with my Nan (well more so for Nan as she loved them). The recipe had been given to me by a friend of hers that is an excellent baker.
We are into wholefoods these days so I do have regular wheat SR flour on hand but do have spelt stocked in the pantry. Off I went on a google search for a spelt scone recipe but couldn't locate one with ingredients on hand. So thought why not convert my old recipe.
They are light and fluffy and I am very pleased with the end result (I may have eaten several).
