April Surprise Recipe Swap: Strawberry Scones

For my second SRS hosted by (Hungry Little Girl), my partner was Turnips 2 Tangerines. Turnips 2 Tangerines is a blog run by a Wisconsin wife, mother, daughter and more who has been involved with food through out her life. She originally started her blog as way to keep up with family, but came to love her blog (like many of us have) and it became a big part of her life. The voice of her blog is very happy, upbeat and she shares much more than just recipes. However, since this is a "Recipe Swap" i focused in on her cooking. She lists easy to follow recipes that are intriguing but not overwhelming. The one that caught my eye was her Strawberry Scones.

I have a love affair with breakfast food, who doesn't? Let's be honest here. As well as berries, so having both in the same recipe caught my eye. As many of you know I do not use eggs, butter or "grain" sugar in my baking, so this proved to be a little difficult to adapt, but I got it! I stuck as close as I could to the original recipe, and it turned out delicious. I also cut it in half since I am the only one who eats sweet breakfast foods in our house.

The recipe is not as crumbly as a scone made with butter would be, but it as the scone texture and taste plus, it was delicious!I also could not wait to take a picture before biting into these. The scone was also not heavy so that was a plus. I actually contemplated on going for a run sense i felt well fed and energetic, but opted for getting work done. My favourite part about this recipe is how simple Turnips 2 Tangerines wrote it, so it is was easy to alter or customize. I will definitely be visiting her site some more.



  1. Hi~ Thank you so much for your kind words:) I am so glad you liked the scones and I am happy you could adapt the recipe to your taste~ That's half the fun of trying new recipes, right? Have a wonderful weekend and again Thank you:) Lynn @ Turnips 2 Tangerines~

    1. It was so hard to decide what to choose, I love all of your recipes!

  2. Oh I have a fear of making scones, because I usually mess them up! Maybe I should try those, since you say they are not heavy :)

  3. Great choice and all the alternative baking supplies is a great use in helping those with allergies or diet restrictions.
