Scones are the perfect weekend breakfast and it’s probably one of the easiest things you can bake. By definition a scone is a quick bread, no yeast required, no rising, you just pretty much mix all the ingredients together. Scones are also very versatile. They can be made savory or sweet. I like them both ways but I do prefer a sweet scone.
This is a simple recipe that uses fresh blueberries and chocolate chips. I made them for a meeting at work and everyone loved them. This is why I doubled the original recipe here, and I also wanted my scones a bit bigger, but if you don’t so many, feel free to cut the recipe in half.
Scones are extremely easy to make. There are basically 3 steps to making them.
- First you need to mix all your dry ingredients together, so the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Cut in the butter using aÂ pastry blenderÂ until mixture resembles peas.Â Add blueberries or chocolate chips, whatever you’re adding them.
- Next you need to mix all your wet ingredients together such as buttermilk and eggs.
- Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients, mix it all using a fork, or your hands. Knead over a floured surface for a few seconds, roll out the dough and cut the scones.
Do you all have a favorite scone recipe? I pretty much like them all.
