If you love afternoon tea and can't get enough of delicious pastries allow us to introduce you to the scioche, it's a mixture of a scone and brioche. This invention has come from Speciality Breads' MD Simon Cannell, the scioche is a versatile baked good that can be combined with many different preserves, savoury or sweet and they are just perfect with your typical jam and cream. This mash-up was created due to a desire to serve a good-quality, scone-type product that could be frozen. Popsugar's team tried it and can testify that it "gives you all the indulgence of a scone with the fluffy goodness of a brioche. It's lighter and more airy, meaning portion sizes are bigger!" Currently the scioche comes in two flavours: original, which will remind you more of a scone, and Sicilian lemon and poppy seed, which has a bit of added zest.
The scioche experts suggest serving them with fresh clotted cream, jam, and fresh berries. Why not try toasting them and smothering them with butter and stewed fruit. You can really spruce up your brunch options and make meals a whole lot more interesting! The official release of the scioche will be at My Place in London's Soho on 24 March; don't miss out – be the first to try the best of both bakes! This story first appeared on Popsugar
This, my friends, is no ordinary scone. It's a hybrid called a scioche - yes, a mix of scone and brioche. Launching exclusively this weekend @myplacesoho from the folk at Kent's Speciality Breads. Verdict? A lighter type of scone with the enriched dough of a brioche. Pretty good actually. #scioche #scone #brioche #bakery #afternoontea #foodie #foodstagram #foodphotography #londonfood #teatime
