wordless wednesday: homemade marmalade and grapefruit scones

Two days ago, I made my favorite homemade marmalade ever from my 5 foot Calamondin orange tree. Today, I yearned for a scone. ( I know you're putting this together:)

I've been on a grapefruit spree lately, and the cutting board was littered with grapefruit peelings this afternoon. I was thinking lemon scones, but those rinds just sitting there made me wonder. What about grapefruit?

It worked. Amazingly. I've never seen such fluffy, airy scones EVER. That tablespoon of fresh juices from my breakfast bowl of grapefruit had the most astonishing reaction to the baking powder, resulting in lightly flavored, but a most definite citrus/grapefruit scone that defied gravity.

If this was a Twitter hashtag, I think it would be #bakingmiracles. Happy Wednesday!
