"These lovely old-fashioned scones are very light; they will literally melt in your mouth! The recipe is very versatile. Substitute your favorite flavor of yogurt and add a tablespoon or two of a chopped complementary fruit, raisins, or currants instead of the lavender. Serve with honey, fruit preserves, or if you're lucky enough to be able to get it, clotted cream."

Maybe the most delicious scone I've ever had in my life. I used whole wheat flour in the picture I posted above. Had to add a tiny bit extra moisture but I'm not the most accurate flour measurer. Also extended my cook time a bit to about 18 minutes. They are so fluffy and awesome even though whole wheat. The lemon yogurt with baking soda was a great idea! I also upped the lavender a bit but maybe wouldn't have to. I used about three teaspoons and they're very strong.
This recipe was great! I divided it in half, and realized very near the end but I didn't have a lemon, so I used orange zest but lemon yogurt. I'm enjoying a scone right now, and it is delicious! If you're looking for suggestions, I would bake them a little longer. I would also add a little more lavender!
