So, if you fancy making a genuinely unusual sweet scone here’s how…. The other morning, when setting ingredients out to make chocolate scones, I thought I’d try rolling up the scone dough in to a roulade shape to see if it worked – I could always mix it all together and make ‘normal’ scones if it failed
