Date and Turmeric Scones

IMG_9808

Being a grown up with free time is one of the absolute luxuries of life, I really noted this yesterday when I went to the museum after a short class (yes, I’m a jobless hobo who is using my time wisely) and being two o’clock in the afternoon, it was full of classes of school kids filling out forms.

Meanwhile I could go and see whatever I wanted and wander about in all my carefree loving time. Being jobless has seen me have a wonderful afternoon of six layer chocolate cake on a Monday. A free event for International Woman’s Day which was a great discussion. A class on over a long lunch on a Thursday and today’s schedule is filled with a little work. Yes, being an adult with free time is pretty.damn.wonderful.

Scones are one those British classics, but its also one of the quickest and easiest things to whip up and for those who not very experienced bakers. In fact, the key to successful scone makers is to only combine the mixture until it just comes together and then baking and eating while still fresh.

These Date and Turmeric scones are gluten free and vegan, making for a great snack to fill the void when you’re wanting something a little sweet without guilt (if that is something you have).
