The trend of conscious eating and a healthy lifestyle is constantly rising, yet we often struggle to whip up delicious, easy yet, more nutritional delicacies at home. And if you are born with a sweet tooth, here are two of the most effortless yet decadent dessert recipes that you can make at home over the weekend.

Rosemary Lemon Scones 

  • Serves: 3 
  • Cooking and baking time: 30 minutes + 15 minutes 


  • 1 tsp castor sugar and baking powder 
  • 1/3 cup butter (cold) 
  • Pinch of sea salt 
  • 2 cups flour 
  • Zest of one big lemon 
  • A handful of rosemary 
  • One egg and two tbsp cold milk 
  • Egg wash (water mixed with egg white) 

Baking Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius. 
  2. Place the flour, butter, sugar, sea salt and baking powder in a mixing bowl. Mix all the ingredients using your fingers till the butter is combined well. Make a well and crack the eggs in the centre of the dough along with the milk. Now fold it in with a spatula. 
  3. Add the rosemary and lemon zest. If you want a dry, soft dough, add a tiny splash of milk if needed. Then, for fifteen minutes, wrap it in clingfilm and dart it in the fridge.
  4. On a floured surface, turn the dough out and cut using a round cutter. It assists in even raising the dough. Brush each scone with egg wash and lay them outlined with baking paper on a baking tray. 
  5. For 14 minutes, bake in the oven until golden and risen. 
  6. Once the scones are out of the oven, serve warm with a bit of jam and clotted cream.

Cooking Method

  1. Scoop the flesh out of the avocados.
