Whole wheat- oat meal Scones

A few days back while i was browsing i saw in many blogspot's a dish called Kiflice and when i clicked on the link it took me to Fresh from the oven. On seeing the recipes there i knew i would join the group. Immediately wrote to them(Rather pestered them to let me join!!!LOL!!!), They were very kind enough to let me join and sent me the invite. Wow!!!!!this indeed is another wonderful Baking group!!!!!

This month's host is Anet from Anet's bread. She chose to challenge the members with baking scones.She provided two recipes but since i did not have Sour dough starter, i chose to do one with buttermilk.


The original recipe is HERE

Cranberries and Currants 1/4 cup

Rolled oats (process half into oat flour) 1/2 cup

Whole wheat flour 1 cup

Baking powder 1 1/4 tsp

Baking soda 1/4 tsp

Salt 1/4 tsp

Sugar 2 Tbsp

Grated zest of 1 orange

Cold butter 1/4 cup

Buttermilk 1/2 cup


Preheat the oven to 205C

Soak the cranberries and currants in warm water for 10 minutes

In a bowl add the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, baking soda and the orange zest and mix it thoroughly,

Now add the cold butter and mix to form coarse crumb like texture

Now add the drained cranberries and oats and mix well

Now add the required amount of buttermilk(1/4 cup- 1/2 cup) and mix lightly. DO NOT KNEAD INTO A SMOOTH DOUGH

Pat into a circle of nearly 3/4 " thickness on a well floured board.

Cut into wedges with a pizza cutter

Transfer to a ungreased cookie sheet

Brush with milk, sprinkle some coarse sugar on it and bake for 20- 25 minutes till golden brown

Serve warm.


A wonderful tea time snack. Not too sweet and quite healthy since whole wheat flour and oats flour is used. Pretty easy to bake. For freezing instructions do look at Anet's blog

Thank you Anet and Thank you Fresh from the oven:-)
Until the next post Happy baking!!!!!!!!!!!
