How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 400ยบ F.
  • Grease a large baking sheet and set aside.
  • Soak the sugar cubes in a small bowl with the orange juice and set aside.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, stir the sugar and flour together then cut the butter into the flour mixture until you get a texture like corn meal.
  • In another bowl, mix the eggs, coffee, and milk together, then stir it into the dry mixture forming a dough. (It will be soft.)
  • Stir in the grated/zested orange rind and walnuts.
  • Dust a board with flour, then pat the dough into a round (about one-half-inch thick).
  • Slice into pie pieces or use a biscuit cutter and make rounds.
  • Place the scones on the baking sheet at least a half-inch apart, as they will rise.
  • Put one cube of sugar into the center of each scone.
  • Bake for about 12 to 15 minutes, or until the scones are golden brown.
  • It tastes best warm with orange marmalade and butter, and, of course, a cup of coffee.
  • (Note: Walnuts can be mixed with dried fruit or other nuts for additional texture.)

    Sounds lovely. Not sure I would be able to finish making them for eating all the sugar cubes.
