I have another guest post for you today! I’d like you all to give a warm and happy hello to Liz from A Sweet Baker! Another one of the lovely friends I’ve made through blogging, she’s made you some spectacular Mango Lime Scones! Take it away, Liz!
It’s Liz from A Sweet Baker an I’m so happy to be here today. I sharing my Mango Lime Scones with you so put on the kettle, make a cup of tea and enjoy!
I was so excited when Jess asked me to be a guest blogger on On Sugar Mountain today. Jess and I have been commenting on each others blog for awhile now. I started following Jess’ blog for two reasons. One, for her great sense of humour and how she always has a great story to go along with every post. Two, for her amazing photographs. When I started my blog I had no idea what I was doing with a camera so I was naturally drawn to Jess’ blog because of her awesome food pictures.
It took a few days for me to think of what I should share with you and I decided to combine my two favourite flavours in a scone. Mangoes have been really tasty lately and I can always throw in a splash of lime to anything I bake. I combined these two flavours into a tasty scone and I also thought it would the perfect snack to sneak into my kids lunches.
I’ve never baked with mangoes before but since these scones turned out so good I know it won’t be the last time. Coming to my blog soon I’ll be posting a Strawberry Mango Crisp that was perfect for breakfast or you could serve it for dessert. I was even thinking I might like to try a Strawberry Mango Guacamole. The possibilities are endless!
