Hi there I just wanted to say a big thank you to the TF members who once again replied to my request, as usual the replies were so helpful. Helen xxx
If the scones are plain or with just raisins, dried cranberries or other dried fruit, and maybe cinnamon,
by all means make bread pudding.
Homemade Biscuits and Scones make far better Bread Pudding than any plain bread. The only exception to that is to use croissants which make the best and richest bread pudding of all. I think you might find it listed here on TF under "Death By Bread Pudding". It is the best I've ever tasted.
I don't think you can go wrong with using the scones at all though. Everyday, we learn something new. Today is a good day.
I suggest using them along with other stale breads, cookies, donuts, cake or the like to make a bread pudding. I freeze the stale items until I've collected enough to make a batch of bread pudding. Stale baked goods work better than fresh for bread pudding. There are many recipes for bread puddings online.
Another thing you can do is to feed it to your backyard birds, as long as there isn't any mold. You get to enjoy watching the birds as well.
Use them as a cobbler topping. Crumble over the fruit and dot with butter. Use them over fruit pies, too.
Whenever I heat up breads in the microwave to refresh them, I wrap them in a damp paper towel, this seems to make a big difference. Might be worth a try.
