About This Class


Learn how to make plain and fruit scones and dollop on jam and cream; savoury ones to have with soup or smoked salmon.


You'll also learn how to adapt the recipes to make your own signature scones!

I will walk you through each stage including what equipment you need, what is the best flour to use and why, how to serve your cream tea and troubleshooting any problems that occur.

So join me in my kitchen, turn on the oven, roll up your sleeves and, as Mel and Sue would say,

In the Kitchen with BakersBunny

'Food is my passion - in words, in pictures, in cooking, in eating but most of all in sharing!'

Passionate baker and amateur cook, Lea Harris is an Edinburgh-based freelance food writer who was on the first series of 'The Great British Bake Off' and firmly believes that food is for sharing, especially baking!

Her first experience at making anything was when she was 4 years old, being taught to make jam tarts at the kitchen table with her dad. Half a century later, Lea is still learning and teaching herself new skills.

Whenever she is abroad, you will find her immersed in the local culture, whether it's at a market, sniffing out artisan bakeries or eating traditional food in someone's kitchen. Lea is passionate about food in all its guises, championing local producers, artisan bakers, independent coffee shops and cafes in Edinburgh. Well known at the various markets in and around the city, she is often found chatting to the stallholders about their products and how they are made.

Her first blog, OfftheEatenTrack, is mainly about food and travel and she has just published  IntheKitchenwithBakersBunny to coincide with her Skilshare courses and contains recipes and helpful hints. Lea also writes a monthly 'What's in Season' column in Edinburgh foodie magazine, Bite; reviews for Citylicious and has co-wrote Taste Britain by Punk Publishing. She has also been a food judge for the Great Taste Awards.

You will find her on Twitter and Instagram as @BakersBunny if you fancy dropping by for a wee chat, a piece of cake and a cuppa!
