Author Notes

Leftover fruit eh? Perfect to stick into dessert or cakes. Or Orange Scones. I love scones, and scones love meback.

Scones are one of the most delicious baked good in my opinion, as they can be eaten at any time. For lunch, Dinner, supper or even the next morning.

Our American friends call them biscuits. Covering them in a white gravy, another delicious way to use scones.

You will enjoy these ones, as they have a mild orange flavour, but they are delicious. —FatLadFood

It would be helpful if the author would convert the measurements and specify the oven temp.
