Buttermilk Oat Scones

April 9, 2011 § 1 Comment

With a little planning ahead, fresh scones in the morning are as easy as this:

1. Get your ingredients together the night before.

2. In the morning, cut in the butter.

3. Mix in the oats, buttermilk, and fruit of choice (raisins, frozen berries). Drizzle the buttermilk over, and gather into a ball. Place the ball of dough on the counter, roll it out, and cut it into scone-size pieces.

4. Bake, cover with icing sugar, and enjoy!

Buttermilk Oat Scones

  • 1 1/2 cups flour (I use 1/2 cup whole wheat flour)
  • 3 tbsp white sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/3 cup butter, cold (cut into small chunks)
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup currants, raisins, other dried fruit, or frozen berries
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk

Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda

Cut in the butter (a pastry cutter works well but a fork will do)

Stir in the oats and fruit. Drizzle buttermilk over and gather into a ball. (It’ll have some loose oats pieces- try your best to keep them in and use a bit of extra buttermilk if necessary.)

Put the dough on a floured surface and pat into about 2.5cm thickness. Cut out with cookie cutters or just a glass.

Bake on parchment paper in a 375 degree oven for 15-20 minutes.

Sift icing sugar over the scones and enjoy.
