Put some chilli flakes in and didn't add the syrup. Very nice indeed.

I made these scones for a Harvest supper. They were superb on the second attempt! The first batch was very tasty but had to use so much extra flour about 4 ounces. The second batch I reduced the syrup to 200mls which was much better. I suggest one uses less maple syrup. -Mipsy
