Lemon Poppy Seed Scones

The past few weeks I have been experimenting with different types of scones and the Lemon Poppy Seed scones were by far the best. It’s a perfect delicacy to eat with tea and to share with friends. If you’re bored on a Sunday Morning definitely try and make these.

5. In another bowl mix together the egg and sour milk.
