Yes, jam and cream is utterly delicious on a scone. But how about trying something a bit more out of the ordinary?
Cornwall’s Trewithen Dairy has come up with a few alternatives based around a sweet shop!
THE FRUIT SALAD
The funky, youthful one. More flamboyant with its tropical appearance. Loud and likes to party!
Spoon a generous dollop of raspberry jam over the fluffy surface of a warm scone. Add a large spoonful of clotted cream on top of the jam, appreciating its golden crust. Adorn with a juicy chunk of pineapple and a Fruit Salad sweet before sprinkling with freeze dried raspberries.
THE BANANA MILK BOTTLE MASH-UP
The super cool one, and it knows it!
Would be wearing mirrored shades if it could … The celebrity of the line-up!
Break a freshly baked scone in two with your hands and enjoy the heavenly aroma! Spread a thin layer of custard over the surface before adding three slices of banana to cover the entire top. Pull a luxuriously generous scoop of clotted cream and place on top. Complete with a Foam Banana, a Milk Bottle sweet and a drizzle of toffee sauce.
THE PARMA VIOLET
The wildcard … This one is for the open minded, embraces diversity, likes to be different!
In a small bowl, mix 2 tbsp of cream cheese with 1 tbsp sieved icing sugar. Combine the two together and leave it to chill out while you make your scones. Ever thrown blueberries into your scone mix? It’s a dreamy combination, the best of a blueberry muffin with the richness of a scone. Take a blueberry scone and smother it with your cream cheese frosting. Dollop over a spoonful of blueberry jam before adding a large helping of clotted cream. Adorn with blueberries and a Parma Violet sweet.
