For Home Bakers Challenge this month, Priya picked up some sweet and savory scone recipes to bake. Scones are a kind of cake or quick bread made with flour, butter, cream or yogurt and dried fruits. Scones are often served for breakfast or evening tea along with butter, jam and cream. Mostly scones are lightly sweetened and glazed, but they can be made savoury too.
I chose the simple scones recipe and tried the cranberry orange variation. I halved the recipe and made mini scones. These scones are really easy to put together and does not take much time. The scones turned out so moist and delicious with the light hint of orange and the sweet dried cranberries. Enjoy the scones warm with a cup of tea!
Notes and Tips
- Make sure the butter is cold, otherwise it will be difficult to grate. You can also chop them into small pieces instead of grating.
- The dough will be slightly sticky, but do not add more flour. Also do not overwork the dough which will make the scones hard.
