This is a recipe we did for Spa Week during the Royal Wedding, but I thought I would revisit it because who doesn’t love a good scone. Or Kate Middleton for that matter.

This recipe has been taken from the Queen of English Cooking herself, Nigella Lawson and in true Chefanies “healthier cooking” fashion we turned it into a more dainty and light version. We substituted whole wheat flour for the All Purpose Flour and used low fat buttermilk but by all means go ahead and use the whole fat products if you please. We also made them mini because everything looks cuter when it is small. We used Currants because they are high vitamin C and antioxidants which is great for keeping you looking young!
