TWD - Honey Nut Scones

There has been a major ramp-up of Tuesdays with Dorie recipes to two a week so that we can finish the book by the end of the year.  I am not sure that I am going to be able to continue at that pace, but for this week, I am doing it. 

One recipe for this week was chosen by Jeanette of The Whimsical Cupcake, who selected honey nut scones.  These are scones containing wholemeal flour (I used buckwheat flour instead) and walnuts (I used blanched almonds).

They are quite delicious:

I spread mine with Burch & Purchese Strawberry and Rose Petal Jam:

It must have been good jam, as I scoffed the entire jar in a week.

While I was at their shop in South Yarra, I also bought a White Chocolate, Honey, Raspberry and Lychee Cake:

which looks like this inside:

It was very tasty, but the $9 price tag is rather steep to make this anything but a special occasion indulgence.

Visit Jeanette's website for the scone recipe, or buy Dorie's book - I have been baking from it for over three years, even before I joined TWD, and it is good.
