One of my favorite things about blogging is getting to meet new friends and learn so much from them. All of our blogs are different & unique but we all want to grow, learn and share with other bloggers. That’s why I am super happy to share a new friend with you! Enjoy!
Hi new friend! Janel here from the sister team of NellieBellie. I’m the short, redhead to counteract my sister Lanet’s tall blondeness. We create healthy recipes, ridiculously decadent desserts, cozy drinks, cocktails, and pretty crafts & diy’s. You know, the important things in a Minnesota life smile emoticon. We’d love for you to pop by nelliebellie.com, our sister site thecampwhisperer.com, or our favorite social media these days … Instagram!
Lemon poppyseed is one of my absolute favorite flavor combinations. If lemon poppyseed muffins are available, they are what I am reaching for. Not the double chocolate or even the banana nut. No siree.
But there only seems to be one way to eat lemon poppyseed; muffins. This is a shame. Such a great flavor combo needs more outlets.
When you are looking for a quick, easy way to make delicious lemon poppyseed treats there is no need to get fancy. These scones are one of our “Lazy Baker” recipes. And, to use the word recipe might be stretching it a bit. On NellieBellie we have an entire collection of recipes dedicated to the Lazy Baker. I think Nellie might have created them in honor of me. She loves to cook beautiful, whole-food, non-processed, home-cooked recipes and most of those are what NellieBellie’s recipe collections are composed of. But there are moments when we both realize that time and talent in the kitchen may not be in the favor of all of our readers. Nothing wrong with that. So, for those of you that are more in my shoes and not particularly inclined to bake and cook… Lazy Baker recipes are just perfect. Like these scones…
These lemon poppyseed scones are just one of the many simple recipes I hope to be creating in the future 🙂 They are a lazy version of the big girl versions but they only use lemon cake mix for a base and just a couple more ingredients to finish them out. One of the best parts about this recipe is that you can easily adapt the recipe to match your own preferences. Like your scones denser? Add more flour and less cake mix. Want a scone that is almost as fluffy as a muffin? Lighten up on the flour and add more cake mix.
Easy as that. And, for a girl like me that isn’t a pro in the kitchen, easy is perfect!
