Apple Scones

Apple Scones

(8 servings)    Printable Version
  • 1 large Granny Smith apple
  • 4 Tablespoons (1/2 stick) cold butter
  • 1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup wheat germ
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 large eggs (1 for glaze)
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
Peel and cored the apple. Cut into 1/2 inch cubes. Should yield 1 cup. Set aside.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Cut the butter into small (1/4-inch) chunks, re-wrap it in the paper, and return it to the refrigerator.

Combine the dry ingredients. Beat 1 egg and combine it with the buttermilk. Thread the butter though the dry ingredients with thumb and fingers, getting it to a gravelly texture.

Comb the buttermilk-egg mixture into the butter-flour "gravel" then add the apple cubes, blending through the batter just enough to be able to make two equal sized balls.

Flatten the balls to 2 disks 5 to 6 inches in diameter. Now "pizza-slice' each disk into four sections. Put the scones on an ungreased cookie sheet. Beat the second egg and brush it on the scones as a glaze.

Bake for 20 minutes, until golden brown.

Delicious apple scone are wonderful with coffee in the morning. This recipe includes some wheat germ for added nutrition and it adds a lovely nutty flavor.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank baseball27 for this recipe.
