Plum Cobbler and Scones double cook

This recipe is a double cook. There are quite a few of them in Prepped.
What I can hear you asking is a double cook? Well it's making two things at the same time that are different, but require virtually the same ingredients and the same process. It has some serious advantages. One lot of shopping. One lot of cooking, one lot of clearing up, and two dishes. It's time saving, efficient and as a busy working mother it's the only way I can get everything done. It saves such allot of clearing up to cook this way !

So with a pudding required for this evening and an invitation for the children to tea at a friends I combined making Plum Cobbler with some fabulous golden plums topped with vanilla scones. I doubled the scone mixture and made a batch of scones that got smothered in butter and cherry jam, and gobbled up in a jiffy by 7 hungry children. - Of course my girlfriend thinks I am a genius ( she's right of course! ) and my husband and our supper guests are about to enjoy the slightly tart plums with a warm scone topping, with vanilla and custard. Must dash they will be here any moment!



  1. Vanessa I am on day 3 of a diet and that post was really mean. I want scones.


  2. Yum. These look great! I do love a fresh scone!

  3. That photo is lovely, beautfully styled.


If you are reading my blog I must warn you that I am not impartial. I want to influence you. I want to make you stop for just a moment and consider the effect of a lifetime of seemingly insignificant decisions and how making small delicious choices can change the world.

I believe that we can change the world one bite at a time.

It's a delicious revolution.
