This is the ultimate summer biscuit- buttery biscuit, sweet peaches and a sprinkling of cinnamon sugar on top. The recipe is Joy the Baker’s and it’s genius- there’s buttermilk in it which makes it soft and just a bit tangy and plenty of butter. The dough is very sticky but this makes the scone tender and moist when baked. I imagine it’ll be super good split in half and filled with whipped double cream..
Pavlovas are possibly one of the most delicious things to eat, and so effortlessly pretty. It’s perfect as it is- its crisp, fragile shell, marshmallowy centre, luxurious cream and sweet-tart fruit tumbled on top. Absolutely perfect. Although I used peaches along with strawberries this time, I prefer it with just strawberries. Lucas Hollweg’s brilliant book, Good Things To Eat has a beautiful autumn version with blackberries and cinammon- what a dream. A gorgeous book with gorgeous photographs, definitely one of my favourites.
My go-t0 recipe for pavlova is from here- I’ve made it several times, and it’s flawless.
