Martin shows you how to make a savory corn, cheese and chive scone, and a sweet variation packed with tea-soaked figs. Master Martin's favorite pound cake next, and whip up a unique mojito variation. And, learn to embrace last-minute guests when you master Martin's one-bowl quick breads. Finally, whip up popular pain de mie dough, ideal for tea sandwiches, rolls or tart crust.
