jammy scones and chocolate whirls

From this big book


comes these ideas for scone variants:

jammy scones and chocolate whirls


next time I'll glaze them for added beauty


For the jammy scones, you make your usual scone dough, press a hole in the top of the scones before they go in the oven, fill with nice raspberry jam and bake.

 For the chocolate whirls, you press or roll the dough to about half the normal thickness, spread it with Nutella (or a blob here and there if it's difficult to spread), roll it up like a swiss roll and cut it into 1 cm thick whirls. Then bake as usual and keep them warm till the children come home from school.

  1. Oh what- that's only the book I got my Bruce Bogtrotter Chocolate Cake recipe from! Except that I just scanned a page from Cooking Catherine's copy. Such a tome! Oh what, I have cooked from the same tome as PFW! This has made my night- even a next hour with Stella Gibbons will not compare!

    2. It would have been called Pensees and none of us would have needed to read anyone else!

  2. Delish .... my niece went to Ballymaloe and studied cookery with Dorina Allen. It's a beautiful Cookery School and the Allen's are all lovely.
    Did you really do lacemaking at school Mise ? I think it's such a beautiful skill to learn. XXXX

    1. Yes indeed, I won a prize for my Carrickmacross lace, Jacqueline, and there were you thinking I was just feckless.

  3. Hello Mise

    I am drooling reading this post and I have neither flour nor butter to make them.
    The jammy scones, my mother used make with home made blackberry jam. You spoil your family in a beautiful way.

    With love,
    Helen xx

  4. Did you make your own raspberry jam? And I hope you made your Nutella? There are standards in Blogtopia...particularly for yoghurt makers. xx

  5. Hello Mise:
    We are on our way. Expect us around four. And a little milk and no sugar, please!

  6. Jammy scones look good. They remind me of those window-cookies around Christmas time with the bit of jam in the center. Looks like a great book. Ah, books... I remember those. I'm hoping in 20 years I won't be telling some child, "Back in my day, before the Kindle Matrix, where knowledge is just beamed into your head, we walked to this big building where they kept all the books... it was called a library, and the people at the big building let you borrow the books. After you read them, you gave them back. Yes, I know that sounds strange and unusual..."

  7. I have Myrtle Allen's book (signed by her very hand) from our visit there and A Year at Ballymaloe - both much loved books. Kudos to you for co ordinating swirly and jam streak patterned plate with both types of scone.

  8. I have the typical comment to leave....I love reading you blog! It's been months, now, and thought you ought to know.

    My poor boys have to forage for snack, most days, but I love surprising them with something that's just out of the oven, like this! A plain and homely delight!

  10. Oh - you are such a wonderful Mother. It is the 'keeping them warm' that gives you away.
    Mine would just be left in a basket on the table. Cold and not nearly as delicious.

    1. They monitor levels in the Nutella jar, you see. Not that we have any of that shop-bought calorific stuff. I know you don't have any either.

  13. I have never tried making scones...not sure why...yours look delicious...but I did live in Dublin a few months and learnt to adore the Irish accent and devour the Irish soda bread!! If you have a favourite soda bread recipe, please share it with me!((:
    thanks! Z

  14. "keeping them warm for the children"...I want to be your little girl. My mom always left us after-school treats, warm from the oven...oatmeal squares. Those were the days...
