Some may say the best things in life are free, I say the best things in life are sugar coated… buttery… and flaky. I’m talking about scones dammit! The best things in life are scones, fresh out of the oven and still steaming. If these scones are so great, then what can possibly make them better? Well my friends, salted caramel makes everything better. If you’ve read my previous post, you may know by now I have a thing for salted caramel. I’m an avid believer that caramel, salted or not, belongs on e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g. Well, okay maybe not everything, but it most definitely belongs drizzled over these scones. Why? Because apple and caramel are natural lovers, and white chocolate well that’s just a no-brainer.
I can’t say that I’ve had a long history with Sticky Toffee Pudding as I have had with my Nan’s Christmas Plum Pudding. My secret love affair with the pudding started only a month ago when I had my first taste of this heavenly gift. I couldn’t believe how moist and yet light as air the pudding was. The pudding was surrounded with a pool of salted caramel sauce and sprinkled with flakes of salt. Each mouthful of pudding had a delectably sweet and salty note. Everything was so harmonious, I just had to recreate this.
