Chamomile & Honey Scones

Chamomile & Honey SconesI’m not usually a tea drinker, but sometimes I enjoy herbal and fruit teas. Chamomile with a teaspoon of honey is one of my favourites and today I decided to transfer that taste into a scone! The result was a sweet, delicate and very comforting treat. I had one straight from the oven, with a freshly brewed cup of chamomile tea and honey. I served it with butter and a drizzle of honey on top. It was amazing.

These Chamomile & Honey Scones are a sweet and soothing treat, perfect served with a cup of chamomile tea!
Serves: 9
  • 210g self-raising flour
  • 50g unsalted butter
  • A pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp light honey
  • 1 tbsp dried chamomile flowers or the contents of 1 chamomile tea bag
  • 125ml milk + extra for brushing on top
  1. Preheat oven to 190c / 170c fan assisted and line a baking sheet with greaseproof paper.
  2. Mix the flour, butter, salt, honey and chamomile flowers together in a food processor until it resembles breadcrumbs. Add the milk and blitz again until the mixture balls together into a dough. Add more flour if too sticky/wet or more milk if it's too dry.
  3. Transfer the dough onto a lightly floured surface and roll it out to about ½ inch thick. Use a cookie cutter or upside down glass to make the scone shapes. You should be able to make approximately 9.
  4. Transfer the scones to the baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes until the tops of the scones are lightly golden.
  5. Serve with jam and clotted cream or try with butter and some honey drizzled on top. Mmmm!

      I was lucky enough to visit the Landmark hotel for an afternoon tea last year, such an amazing place – wishing I was there again now too!

      The flowers were mixed in with the flour and butter, grinding them into small pieces. I’m not sure I liked the idea of biting into a whole dried flower as it can be quite bitter, but I’m sure it would have looked prettier! And love the idea of hibiscus scones… with strawberry jam… mmmmm

      Thanks Shiran! I don’t think I’ll ever be a big tea drinker but chamomile tea is definitely a welcome beverage once in a while :-)

    These scones look amazing Aimee! I would love a few of these with afternoon tea – adding chamomile in here is such a great idea and I bet super fragrant and tasty :)

    What a beautiful idea, I seriously wouldn’t have thought of making chamomile scones! I can imagine how wonderful they would’ve smelt whilst baking in the oven… oh my gosh. Heaven. I will definitely try these beauties! Thanks Aimee x
