I love oatmeal and anything that contains it would easily get my attention! I've got this scone recipe from joyofbaking which I fell in love with once my eyes met the photo shown on the site..and the next thing I did is to give it a try !
I made it twice within two days! The first time, I followed through the whole original recipe except reduced amount of sugar and it came out excellent...And the second time, I twisted the recipe a bit by leaving out the zest and added some vanilla extract instead..I also used self-raising flour to see if it would make scones rise higher than plain flour (which it did!. Both time I didn't bother to finish up with icing on top which I didn't think it would make much difference on the final result.
And my verdict ?? I think the one with zest gives more outstanding taste than vanilla while I prefer self-raising flour's job to plain flour..but all in all, I was really pleased with both of the results !
