Savoury pinwheel scone with smoked salmon, capers and rocket
Scones are always popular to whip up at a moment’s notice. Oldfield writes: “This recipe is a great example of adapting a recipe to an occasion. It was initially Gran’s grandmother’s recipe and used as a sweet pinwheel scone, but over the years, we have enjoyed changing the flavours. Here, rich smoked salmon, salty capers and peppery rocket combine together perfectly. The scone could be served for breakfast or as a light lunch with salad on the side.”
