Yum Yum, Scones with Jam and nice cup of tea is something that dreams are made of, especially if the scones are warm and freshly done! It might be difficult to just eat one, or two, or three, or…..

So you might have some scones that you want to reheat and you want to find out what are the best options? Well take a look at my reheating guide below that will highlight the best options available.

The Oven!

If you want to reheat your scones, then it would be a good idea to reheat them in the oven. While this will take a couple of minutes to do, the results will have them tasting as if they were freshly made.

Note: If the scones were frozen, allow them to thaw until they are at room temperature.


  • Preheat the oven so that it is 350°F.
  • Place the scones on a baking sheet.
  • Place inside the oven and allow them to reheat for 10-12 minutes.
  • Once they are fully heated up, you can take them up out and serve.

So What About the Microwave?

While it might seem like a good idea to throw the scones in the microwave to heat them up, you will probably end up doing more harm than good.

Reheating the scones in the microwave will cause them to come out soggy, especially if they are heated up for too long. If you’re only doing it for a couple of seconds, then you can probably get away with it, but the oven is definitely the best option available and should be used when possible.
