Good morning fellow early birds & scone lovers!

It is an absolutely stunning Monday morning here in Vancouver, so even though it is a Monday morning and thus a little bit depressing that I have to go into work today, I can’t help but be more chipper than my usual Monday morning self all thanks to this gorgeous sunshine!  Now I don’t know what it is about these sunny Vancouver mornings, but they always put me in a scone baking mood! Well if I’m being honest, I am pretty much always in a scone baking mood – because if there is one thing I know for sure about myself, it is that I am an absolute scone-aholic.

Not only do I love to bake cornucopias amounts of scones to test out new flavour combinations, but once a batch of fresh scones comes out of my oven… stopping at just one scone is literally impossible for me. Seriously – how do you eat just one scone? As far as I’m concerned, if you can stop after eating just one delicious, flaky, buttery homemade scone… you have super-human powers and deserve to be awarded a medal of honour for the person with the most self control when it comes to scone consumption. This would be a very prestigious award would you agree?
