Mary Berry’s Fruit Scones

Delicious fruit scones

There’s nothing like a fruit scone with butter/ jam/ clotted cream for a mid morning snack or to fill a gap between dinner and bed.

I usually use only raisins but found I had nearly run out so I made up the quantity with currants. The scones still taste great!

These fruit scones freeze well so I can whip one out when I’m feeling peckish.

I always pick up the free Waitrose and Tesco magazines when I go supermarket shopping. Some recipes work well and others are a bit of a flop, but I’ve never tried one of Mary Berry’s recipes and have it fail.

Three cheers for Mary Berry.

Read my memoir for how I learned to cook ‘Woman in a White Coat.’

My Waitrose and My John Lewis Store Cards
My Waitrose and My John Lewis Store Cards

The good thing about these cards is that they are free and you get rewards all the time unlike the John Lewis Credit card for which you have to spend £500 before you can redeem your points.

Besides getting some discounts you can get a free drink with the My Waitrose card and I’ve ben receiving monthly vouchers for a drink and pastry with my John Lewis card.

When Josh and I go to shopping in Kings Road or go to an exhibition at the Saatchi gallery we always finish up having a free tea and scone at Peter Jones in their restaurant on the 6th floor.
