Victorian House Scones

Partnership Level: Silver

Victorian House Scones manufactures hand-crafted, artisanal baking mixes for scones, biscuits, muffins, pancakes, and shortbread cookies. We are different from many companies because we choose to offer BASE mixes, and help you learn how to create your own unique flavors from those base mixes. (we also have some ‘dedicated flavor’ scone mixes, specifically Butter Brickle, Lemon Poppyseed, Indian Chai, Pumpkin Spice, and Gingerbread). Our mixes are all created one bag at a time, by hand, making this as close to ‘scratch baked’ and ‘home made’ as you can achieve without actually measuring each ingredient yourself.

Additionally, we understand that everyone is busy, and time is a precious commodity. Our doughs and batters freeze well (in fact we think the final baked product is better for having been frozen!) and allow you to bake straight from the freezer with no proofing required.

You can easily serve fresh baked scones, muffins, biscuits or pancakes daily without having to create the batter fresh each day. Complete directions are on our website.
