To celebrate the return of Great British Bake Off this year, we’ve partnered up with award-winning North East baker John Lognonne to bring you 10 weeks of Didsbury Gin infused bakes.
Kicking it off, we’ve got the Didsbury Gin-fused Mixed Fruit Scones. Top these with some clotted cream and a good quality jam. Enjoy with a cup of tea (or a G&T…) and to pack in even more flavour, we like to mix the jam with a good splash of Didsbury Gin.
Check out the recipe below and tag us with your creations @Didsbury_Gin on Instagram or @DidsburyGin on twitter. Don’t forget to use the hashtag #DGatHome and happy baking!
