If these scones are here for one purpose, it’s to make you question why we don’t make savory scones more often – that, and to engulf you in flaky, buttery, cheese-and-bacon-loaded pastry heaven. ← UGH, SO GOOD. In all seriousness though, why aren’t savory scones more of a thing? The base is simple – flour, salt, butter, […]

Nutella-Filled Scones - Buttery, flaky scones sandwiched with a hefty dose of rich Nutella  ➝ Pure heaven. | www.brighteyedbaker.com

This is what you call an unapologetically indulgent recipe. You might even want to call it an unapologetically indulgent breakfast; they’re worth it. A buttery scone is a treat, but a buttery scone filled with Nutella? Now that’s what I call an awesome splurge. These scones certainly aren’t anything fancy (because I doubt you could call a humble scone […]

Glazed Blueberry Vanilla Bean Scones - fluffy and tender scones with an amazing vanilla flavor and juicy bits of blueberry taking center stage - plus a sweet, colorful blueberry glaze! | www.brighteyedbaker.com

I have this MAJOR piece of news, which is that I’m leaving for London and Greece in about a week (!!!), and that means that at this moment I’m caught somewhere between being crazy-excited for what’s coming up and freaked out about all the stuff that needs to get done before then. I kept telling […]

Coffee and Brown Sugar Scones | A java-inspired twist on the scone that makes it the perfect companion for your morning cuppa.  | www.brighteyedbaker.com

THIS is what you call a combine-all-your-favorite-things-into-one kinda recipe. Coffee + brown sugar + scones ➝ tell me these are your favorite things too, right?! Real talk though — as much as I love scones any which way you make them (so long as they’re made well), these are without a doubt one of my favorite […]

I feel like scones are such happy food, don’t you think? I mean, how can you picture yourself sitting down in the morning with a fresh scone on your plate and a cup of coffee at your side and not feel happy? I dare you to try, really; it just can’t happen. Now, there’s clearly […]

Zested Orange & Vanilla Bean Scones  - light, buttery, tender scones with the perfect amount of crispy edges and fresh citrusy flavor.

Have I mentioned before that scones are basically my favorite thing ever? HELLO crispy-edged, buttery little bites of goodness that are super-easy to make. I like you. ♡ Here’s the thing; when I’m feeling ambitious, I make fancy cupcakes with whipped ganache and all that jazz. When I feel like putting in effort is just short of […]

I have my fingers crossed right now that gingerbread is still a thing even though the holidays are over. I SO wanted to share these scones before Christmas came and went, but the last few weeks have been completely chaotic (in the best way possible!) and here we are on the other end with me hoping that […]

Maple Date Scones - buttery scones studded with sweet dates and laced with pure maple for so much flavor in every flaky bite. | www.brighteyedbaker.com

I own very, very few cookbooks (I can count 3 off the top of my head), which is sort of a weird thing. It’s not that I’m not into them, because I love flipping through them, looking at all the gorgeous photos, finding inspiration from some amazingly creative and talented people, and getting a sense of the unique […]

Fluffy Buttermilk Scones - simple, lightly sweetened scones, perfect with butter and jam on a lazy morning. | www.brighteyedbaker.com

When I went to Paris a few summers ago, I fell in love with the simple perfection of plain scones. It’s funny because in the US, we mostly do scones with all kinds of flavor combinations – which I totally love as well – but in Europe, scones seem to take on a different role […]

Do you have a to-bake list? Or a to-cook list? I have a few, and they’re so long that I don’t know if it’s humanly possible to ever get through them all. I add to them constantly, so basically my chances of ever reaching the bottom of the list are zero to none. When I […]
