TWD: Honey Nut Scones

Honey Nut Scones

So I couldn’t swing cheddar and dried apples this week so I substituted Honey and Pecans for them.  To be honest, I don’t think I’ve had a proper scone before.  I mean sure, I’ve had a scone-like muffin from a corner bakery before, but if you asked me to point out the scone in a lineup of breakfast muffins, I would be stumped!

On to the recipe.  The batter consisted of a liquid made of eggs, honey, and milk.  The dried ingredients were made up of unblanched flour, whole wheat flour (healthy!), baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

I really enjoyed making this batter by hand.  First I cut the pieces of frozen butter into the dried ingredients with my fingers.  I felt very in touch with my food when doing this.  You want to try to break the pieces of butter into small pieces.  This makes the scone flaky. Next I added the liquid and stirred it in with a fork.  Finally, I kneaded the dough lightly until everything came together.

Next I divided the dough into wedges with my pizza cutter.

And into the oven they went.  20 minutes later they were all done.

The scones were light and tasted great with a hint of honey.  By themselves they were a little dry but they’d be perfect for breakfast with a little honey and butter and a cup of coffee.

This was a fun and quick recipe.  I would definitely make it again for a weekend breakfast with family and friends.

  1. They look wonderful – glad the whole wheat flour worked for you (I wanted to try some, but was too chicken).

  2. Nice job. They look really nice. Honey and nuts sound like a great combo.

  3. I only know the British ones, these are totally different but good with the cheddar and apples in it. But your substitution sounds also delicious, like the triangle shape.
