Blood Orange Scones


Oh winter citrus, how do I love thee? There are too many ways to count. I just can’t get enough of you. Combining you with a scone is almost too good to be true. Almost. These Blood Orange Scones are moist. I mean, shut-the-front-door moist. She’s beautiful. Just look at her. And that citrus flavor isn’t just hiding behind a veil with her head down,…

Maple Oat Scones With Espresso Glaze Recipe by Rebecca Firth | DisplacedHousewife

Maple Oat Scones With Espresso Glaze


Friends, let’s make some delicious maple oat scones! I love-loathe Sundays. I don’t like to make plans on Sunday and I secretly judge people that plan an event that requires me to leave the house on a Sunday. We can still be friend but if we’re to be really good friends, this has to cease.  The only outing I’ll consider…

Chocolate Affogato Ice Cream Cake + Saveur Nomination


I’m sorry, is there a better way to celebrate than ice cream cake? Better yet, chocolate affogato ice cream cake with champagne? That’s exactly what I did when I found out I was nominated for a Saveur Blog Award (in the Baking and Sweets category, yay!). I wanted us to have a beautiful dessert + bubbles. So consider this celebratory…

A split scone with whipped cream and fresh strawberries

Strawberry Scones With Fresh Whipped Orange Blossom Cream


Sunday morning I carried my breakfast (Olive oil-fried egg on sourdough toast with tomatoes + balsamic. Try it. You’ll love it.) and latte to the backyard. Still in my pajamas I sat on an old, battered, sun-bleached adirondack and just ate and sipped. There was no rushing. No half-eaten bagels. No missing homework. Gavin was laying on the couch building…

Chocolate Almond Scones


You knew my love of scones was going to morph into some little chocolate number. I’ve actually been hanging onto this chocolate almond scones recipe for probably a year. I know. Sorry. They’re so good. But I needed a bit of a scone sabbatical. Once I stopped baking them for the bakery we needed a break. But enough time has passed and…

Chocolate Malted Layer Cake With Toasted Meringue


So I’ve learned something very important this week. Grab a drink, move in close and listen carefully: I have zero self control with chocolate cake. Every year, growing up, my mom would make me a chocolate cake for my birthday. You know the cake…those amazing doctored-up box cakes that are the confectionary equivalent to crack. One year in particular, my best…

Petite Raspberry Scones + Fresh Lemon Glaze


How’s it going? End of school, blazing pre-summer heat + life have kept me from you. I’m sorry. I’m back. And I’m seriously backlogged with truckloads of recipes that I want to share with you. Think savory Spaghetti + Meatballs  that comes together quickly. Or what about that Salted Caramel Brown Butter Blondie Ice Cream that I’ve been parading around…

Tender Strawberry Cream Scones


Fresh Strawberry Cream Scones are one of my favorite ways to use fresh strawberries (because there is nothing better than homemade scones!). Picture the softest, lightest scone interior loaded with fresh berries at every bite (that’s this scone!). I have over a dozen scone recipes on my site, I love them so much! They’re so easy to throw together (once…

Tart Cherry Almond Scones


Someone requested these for the bakery and I sort of thought, meh…what’s the big with cherry almond scones. Holy crap you guys, these are my new favorite. Super simple to make. Everything’s a staple, none of this what’s-in-season crap. Pure heaven. Sometimes, by Sunday, when it’s the perfect scone-making day, my produce has dwindled and I don’t want to get…

Holiday Cranberry Orange Scones


I don’t have a ton to say. I ruptured a disc in my back several years ago (which I don’t talk about much because it makes me feel like the old-lady emoji) and I seem to have re-annoyed it. After standing on my feet all morning baking cranberry orange scones my toes were going numb and it was hurting like…

Petite Spiced Pumpkin Scones


These Petite Spiced Pumpkin Scones have two (2!) glaze options. First, a nice maple schmooey that screams fall. Second, an anise schmooey for those of you that want to wake up your taste buds a bit. This latter schmooey adds a nice kick to the smooth, warm flavors of the pumpkin scones. I did some maple (for my kids), some anise (for me)…

Chocolate + Espresso Birthday Cake


chocolate + espresso birthday cake { birthday season } Let’s talk about ‘birthday season.’ It’s that time of year when you’re inundated with birthday celebrations of friends and family. You know what I’m talking about, right? You have one too? Every other day for seemingly weeks on end you’re running around buying gifts, making cakes and eating + drinking beyond capacity. It starts off…

Bacon Cheddar Chive Petite Scones


Anytime I can throw bacon, cheese and onions in something, I will. I wanted to dabble in savory scones for quite some time but just hadn’t found the time or occasion. So when I had the opportunity to cater a large lunch recently, I knew my time had come. I didn’t put these bacon cheddar chive scones on the proposed…

I consider these The Best Mixed Berry Scones with a Bright Lemon Glaze my core scone recipe! This is an older post (that is in the queue to be updated); please reach out with any questions!! The instructions look extensive, but it’s only because I put a ton of detail in them for a perfect outcome. I promise they aren’t…

Tangerine Scones


Yesterday I waxed on about weekday and weekend recipes. So my usual scone recipe does not use butter. But I see scone recipes all the time using butter and I thought…I love baked goods with butter. What am I resisting? So my previous scones have been anointed the weekday scones…and these with the butter, cream and egg are weekend scones.…

Apple Cinnamon Cherry Scones


My life is currently filled with two lists. One list is filled with “have-to-dos” and the other with “want-to-dos”. The first sucks up most of my daylight hours. The latter is filled with all of the things that make me happy: hanging out with my kids, writing, baking, gardening, laying in bed reading. As I read this list it sounds like I should…

Pumpkin Scones


The only scones I ever eat are my mom’s. My son called her up last Sunday morning just so she would get out of bed and make them for us. She did, and they were perfect. Every time. She and my sister love the Starbuck’s pumpkin scone. Never tried it. You literally cannot turn a corner on the Internet right now without…
