Yummy! This was today’s breakfast, my kids were in heaven. What child wouldn’t love piping hot blueberry scones with vanilla icing (glaze) for breakfast? What is better they take such little time, and the kids all come into the kitchen every morning to see what type of treat, I have made. I guess this will be one of their traditions, when they are older and look back at their childhood. I guess there could be worse traditions.
Now, my oldest son has a Gluten Allergy, so while I am photographing the regular flour recipes, I do make him a couple in his own air fryer, that we designated for him.
My mother is a great baker, she always baked every evening, so that we would have something delicious to bring to school the next day. Back in the olden days, we actually walked and during those walks, we ate our breakfast, as we were always running late. On most nights, I can remember her baking something special for the next morning and we would grab one of our walks to school each morning. This was great because my sister and I were always running late to school. So, having a portable breakfast was important, and since I’m old, we didn’t own a microwave or eat frozen foods. So, having an on the go-to breakfast was a life-saver in my eyes.
My kids have the same problem on all of the days of the week, we are always running late. My youngest son has a half an hour drive to school, so he always eats in the car. My oldest one is barely making it to school on time, so he eats, as my husband drops him off. Both my husband and I try to gulp our coffee down during the commutes. He eats on the way to work, I prefer to wait and eat alone when I get home. And I usually sit and figure out what I am going to make for my blog that day.
Everyone always asks me how I get an air fryer scone pan that fits into my basket, well here is my hack—
