There is nothing better than a scone in the morning with your coffee or tea as you watch the sunrise for a new day ahead of you. My grandmother known as “Nana”made at least what she called, “Pan Scones”. Nana had all the yummy recipes from her Scottish heritage! Nana‘s “Pan”Scones was a favorite of our family every time she came for a visit. My dad took over after she stopped visiting and now I’m making the scones for us.
I now have the recipe and enjoy making them all the time for my family. They sort of look like a English muffin and yet they are really nothing like it! They are soft, a little more denser and you would not toast them.
The recipe is oh so delicious and simple and easy to make. Here is the recipe notes at the bottom and also the video link to my YouTube where you can see how I make them. I hope you give this a try and enjoy!
