French Toast Scones (!) and a GIVEAWAY!!!

You may have noticed that I enjoy baking...a lot. But, there are times when I'm just too lazy to read a recipe, assemble ingredients and measure out flour. These times are called MORNINGS! No, even though I want to be one, I am not a morning person....just ask my family.

So, I was really excited to try this King Arthur Flour French Toast Scone Mix!
First, let me say that if I could dab the mix behind my ears, I would. It would be my signature fragrance; it smells like I imagine heaven does.

Second, the mix and the instructions are simple. Just add butter, egg and milk. And the batter....I probably could have eaten the entire bowl raw. I settled for licking my fingers...and the spoon...and the bench scraper...

Third, I recognize all of the ingredients in the mix. I like that. And who but King Arthur adds Vietnamese cinnamon to their mixes?!?

Fourth, these are serious scones! They bake up big and fluffy and ,I'll just say it, glorious! If you've only ever had a scone from the coffee shop, these will knock your socks off! You'll want to try them!

Wouldn't a basket of scone mixes be a great gift for a new mom who doesn't have time to bake anymore, but still wants to? I want a stash for my pantry...for lazy mornings...or company...or tea time...

Guess what?!? The nice people at King Arthur Flour are going to send one lucky Bake at 350 reader a French Toast Scone Mix of their very own! Yay! Hop on over to King Arthur and tell me what other scone mix you'd love to try. I'm thinking Lemon-Blueberry...in the meantime, maybe they'll consider a line of women's fragrances? :)

Drawing will be held Sunday at 8pm central. Good Luck!

  2. Seriously? I have to pick ONE? Have you seen the flavors they have?? LOL I can narrow it down to Lemon Blueberry and Harvest Pumpkin. From there I would have to close my eyes and pick. LOL

  3. Cherry Almond or pumpkin harvest.

    I LOVE pumpkin scones that are really spiced up and glazed a smidge.

    The Cherry Almond just sounds classy and toasty :)

  4. Raspberry white chocolate. Most definitely!

    ReplyDelete
  5. Only one choice? I suppose it would have to be apple-cinnamon, since I'm not sure the Vermont cheddar biscuit mix qualifies as a scone!

    ReplyDelete
  6. cherry almond! peaches and cream! bluberry sour cream! Every single one!

    ReplyDelete
  7. The blueberry and sour cream sounds great.

  12. While they all sound yummy, the Harvest Pumkpin sounds particularly delicious today (perhaps because I woke up from a dream about pumpkin chocolate chip muffins this morning?). My kids would go for the lemon blueberry, my husband would pick the chocolate chunk. Can I just try them all?!?
