Easy buttermilk scone recipes|Nigellas buttermilk scone recipes

I love Nigella Lawson and her recipes.Check out my pinterest board The famous Nigella Lawsons creations and you will see that there is a separate board dedicated to Nigella.
Wow..isnt she?

These buttermilk scones perfectly explain why I admire this kitchen goddess.
This scone recipe is simple and fuss free...sounds familiar.Ya right...my whole blog is about cooking fuss free!

Scones are actually small cakes but are very minimally sweet.Therefore any homemade jam goes well with it.Check out this jam Organic Plum and apple jam.yum!!!

A quick treat for kids,guest or yourself and which is very filling too! and yes the recipe is eggless.
Also you can replace buttermilk with milk to get simple scones instead of buttermilk scones.

Lets quickly make them and eat them too!
