Every Saturday morning I bake something for breakfast. This past Saturday just happened to be these Cranberry and Grapefruit Scones that were incredibly moist and flavorful.
Lately, I’ve been wanting scones but really couldn’t come up with a new flavor that appealed to me. As I was rummaging through my refrigerator Friday night I was looking in my fruit drawer and all that was in it was a leftover bag of cranberries and two lonely grapefruit. That’s when the idea hit me! I knew a popular scone was cranberry-lemon, but I figured I could substitute the grapefruit for the lemon (since I didn’t have any lemons and I clearly needed to go grocery shopping).
As I was preparing this recipe, the smell of the grapefruit zest starting filling the kitchen and brought the kids in to see what I was making. I think they were expecting cookies or something, because when I told them that I was making scones, their answer was “Oh, smells good. What are scones anyway?” I tried to explain it to them but I guess my explanation didn’t sound too appealing because they quickly left, not even asking to lick the spoon and bowl at the end. Too bad for them!
When I took the scones out of the oven the kids were waiting for me to ice them so they could see if they liked these things called scones. Seeing the way they ate them, I think they did! I’m pretty sure you will too!
If you like scones like I do, then you might want to try this recipe too!
