Scone week hailed a recipe for success


Dozens of entries, willing customers and a keen bakery team were the key ingredients to creating the M&C Scone Week which we celebrated last week.

We asked our customers to submit recipes for what they perceive to be the perfect scone and we had oodles of entries from the sublime to what some thought were the ridiculous.

The Bakery team had the hard job of choosing seven recipes with each winning scone being baked each day of the week.

The winning entrants who have now won an M&C voucher were:


Pork Sausage & Marmalade – Anna-Mary Overing

Strawberry & Prosecco – Carol Maddocks

Banoffee – Maria Gransden

Beetroot & Turkish Delight – Judy Lefevre

Cheese, Chorizo & Marmite – Natalie Whyte

Blueberry & Coconut – Judi O’May

Hazelnut Latte – Wendy Milligan


Maria Gransden’s Banoffee scone proved popular with our customers.

Thirza Cruickshank, coffee shop manager said it was great fun: “We have really enjoyed the week and the run up to it. We had so many entries that it made it very difficult to choose. There were so many great recipes – some which would have definitely tickled those taste buds and some which may have tested them. Either way we have some very creative and inventive customers.”

She added: “We had the hard job of having to choose just seven winning recipes and we tried to balance it with some more middle of the road tastes yet delicious all the same, with some flavours that would possibly surprise some of our customers.

“The scone that raised the most eyebrows was the Beetroot and Turkish Delight combination. We had tasters and once people had given it a try they were pleasantly surprised.

“The most popular scone was definitely the banoffee. We want to say a huge thank you to those who took the time to enter and to our loyal customers who seemed to enjoy the week as much as we have.”
