Breaking News on Fastest Cake in the World!

Q.   What’s the fastest cake in the World?
A.   Scone


I’m afraid I haven’t posted anything for over two weeks the reason being that I have been busy eating scones.  Life’s never easy, is it?

I am writing another book, the fourth in an occasional series, on genius recipes

This new book is about one very simple, very useful dough (basically a scone dough) which is so flexible that really I imagine one could manage with very little else in the dough department. There are a really surprisingly large variety of scrumptious things that can be made from the key recipe, in fact I have to keep delaying publishing the bugger whilst I test out more ideas!

What a problem, eh?  Just look at what I’ve been up against in the past few days.

I’ve been testing:

Sweet Scones ...


... and Cheese Scones,


Glazes and Toppings,

glazes for-scones

Griddle Cakes


 ... and Regional Variations


But that is just a start, there are so many delicious possibilities with this simple recipe.


News from the future - this is the book that was making  me fat! The Secret Life of Scones - now published.

In other news:

~   I was very surprised to read my name in an article about Antony Worrall Thompson, no less, and excellent Holy Lama Spice Drops – turns out I am "well known"! 


~   We had a primrose in flower last week – does this augur the end of the World do you think?

Sorry about the poor quality of the photo – I was startled!
