Recipes Using Leftover Scones

Would anyone know what to use left over scones for? I don't want to throw them away. They are going hard, but not off right now. I have heated them in the microwave for a couple of seconds, but they are not right. Many thanks. Helen xxx

I'd make bread pudding!

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.

Use them as a cobbler topping. Crumble over the fruit and dot with butter. Use them over fruit pies, too.

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.

Hi Helen,

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.
