Nigella's Buttermilk Scones

I made these a couple of weeks ago and thought they were just delightful.
I was inspired as i saw Wattle Valley clotted cream in the supermarket. Sadly after i made the scones i could not find the cream....
This time i was inspired by notquitenigella and her splendid afternoon tea
I made a big batch of heart shaped scones and froze some to pull out for a spontaneous afternoon tea.

Then in Anna Olson 'switch up' style i recreated my scones into a scone style bread and butter pudding.

I halved the scones, lay them in a little baking dish and sprinkled with a little cinnamon and caster sugar. I whisked up an egg, a little caster sugar and some milk. Poured over my scones and baked for about 20 mins. It was delicious, although i could have been more generous on the sugar (next time i really should measure how much i used!).


  1. This is a great way to use any leftover scones. It looks decadent!

  2. Aww thankyou so much for the shoutout and what pretty heart scones! Such a great idea to use up the scones as I find they go stale so quickly!

  3. Way to go with the scones! Your bread pudding looks incredibly delicious. Glad to find your blog and will add this to my must try list!
