Not date scones

Up in Awakeri I received a late Christmas gift A Treasury of New Zealand Baking – a collection of kiwi favorites from well known New Zealanders. With the family around it’s always tempting to bake because everything gets eaten pretty much straight away and you don’t have to wait a week before trying something else – so today I started.

Blueberry scones for lunch.  Nikau is serving these at the moment in place of date scones (noticed they did this around this time last year as well so perhaps an annual summer tradition) so I just had to try them. The mixture was very sticky and I was quite concerned they’d be very doughy and solid.

But they were light and delicious and just like the ones I’ve had at Nikau! And just like the picture in the book. Even my niece who announced she doesn’t like scones but seeing as I was making them and they had yoghurt in them she’d give them a go liked them!!
