Let them Eat Cake!

So I’ve decide to title this post after Marie Antoinette’s famous phrase (you will see why in a minute). But don’t let me deceive you, this entry has no historical facts in it.

One morning last summer, I realized that the delicious triple berry scone (from Two Little Red Hens) I was enjoying was practically cake. I pondered as to why it was acceptable to have a scone for breakfast but not cake. After all, the one time I told my mom I was eating leftover birthday cake for breakfast, she gave me a very judgmental look.

Without a real answer to this puzzling question, I concluded that scones in fact are just an excuse to eat cake for breakfast. Following the words of Marie Antoinette, “Let them eat scones!”

    The thing that gets me: Some scones are sweet and cake-like, some more biscuit-y, some spongy, some impenetrable as hard-tack. I prefer cross between cake-y and biscuit-y. Could use a recipe.

      Yes, agreed about the texture. Maybe I will try and make them, and if they come out successfully, I will post a recipe!

        Cool..Go for it! Would like to find a good recipe. Real Brits have said to me our scones are ridiculous.
