May 29, 2019, Wednesday is National Scone Day. On this day, we pay homage to this little treat that so many millions enjoy today. The origin of the Scone dates back to Scotland during the early 1500’s. Scone is a single serving cake or quick bread made out of wheat, barley, or oatmeal with baking soda as a leavening agent. Scones are often lightly sweetened and occasionally glazed with an egg wash. The first scones were served as a large circular shape dessert then later cut into triangular wedges. Scones are close cousin to the biscuit with exception that scones are much sweeter and are baked differently. The popularity of the scones grew during the mid 1800‘s as the British Empire enjoyed scones with their Afternoon Tea. Today, scones come in all shape and sizes and can be found in coffee shops and bakeries around the world. There are different varieties of scones made with cheese, fruits, and spices. Many people tell me that they normally don’t like eating scones because it’s dry like a biscuit. However, after tasting my scones, they say that my scones taste different as its more moist in texture and flavorful. We make a variety of flavorful scones and working on new flavors. I’m currently working on creating Matcha Scone that I hope will be perfected in time for National Scone Day Celebration. My question to you is Scone a breakfast dessert, snack, or dessert? I think its all of the above.
