The first thought that pops into your head when you wake up — coffee. The second? Scones. If it isn’t scones, there’s a very good reason why: It’s because you haven’t had any of these tasty iterations before. The British-born pastry has been around since even before Queen Victoria sat on her throne, but it’s still king of breakfast pastry options today. Here are 15 exciting and (most importantly) delicious ways to recreate the classic breakfast treat.

1. Black Tea and Honey Scones: If you like the taste of a traditional scone, but are looking to amp up the flavor, consider this recipe. These incredibly light and fluffy scones are simple, yet delicious, thanks to the subtle hints of black tea and honey. (via Feed Me Seymour)

2. Cherry Almond Ricotta Drop Scones: The tartness of the dried cherries, the sweetness of the ricotta cheese and the nuttiness of the almonds work together to create this rich and creamy scone. (via Full Fork Ahead)
