Cape Ann has so many great scone options with its stellar bakeries–there could be a scone trail!
After reading Joey’s post about Cake Ann, I just had to make a beeline when done filming today. The newest bakery in town had been inundated with customers all morning, and having sold out several times earlier in the day, were on their twentieth or so batch, of everything! I brought some blueberry muffins and Kouign-amanns (pronounced queen-a-mahn) home and they were quickly devoured by husband, son, and myself. Oh Lucky Us Cape Anners!
Cake Ann is located at 214 Eastern Avenue, in the small shopping plaza next to Common Crow.
Needing a gift for a friend who loves to bake, I stopped by Alexandra’s Bread this morning. Thanks to our hard working DPW, I just pulled right into the parking space, easy, peasy! A blast of scents, yummy fresh-baked bread and cranberry scones greeted me, along with an equally as wonderful blast of color in their fun gifts and wonderful handmade treasures. Alexandra’s Bread is the perfect anecdote to yet another snowy day! While shopping, you can also stock up on their fabulous and fresh baguettes, olive bread, and scones.

Banana Split Scones
This morning I created this recipe for my daughter Amanda, who requested freshly baked scones for breakfast. I thought I whip up a batch using slightly overripe strawberries, and extra coconut milk leftover from another recipe. The results were great! The scones are light and fluffy, and not overly sweet. Tuck this recipe into your recipe box…strawberry season is around the corner!
