This weekend, I decided I needed to make a new scone recipe. One that I could eat smothered in peach butter or blueberry butter.
If you are looking for a scone to eat on its own, perhaps with a coffee or cup of tea, this is not the scone recipe for you. May I recommend my Chai Tea Savvy Scones or Sea Salt & Dark Chocolate Cherry Savvy Scones instead?
But if you are looking for a scone to serve as a delicious vehicle for jams, jellies and preserves, you’ve come to the right place. They are fairly plain on their own, but then, that’s kind of the point.
Simple Savvy Scones
2 1/2 c whole wheat flour
1 T sugar
1 T baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/3 c olive oil
1 T apple cider vinegar
3/4 c milk
Preheat the oven to 400F, and grease a large baking sheet.
Combine the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the liquid ingredients.
Pour the wet into the dry ingredients and stir until fully incorporated. The dough will look a little dry.
Divide the dough into 2 equal pieces. Pat each into a 1″ thick round disk on the baking sheet. Slice each disk into 6 equal wedges, separating the pieces slightly so that the edges will bake.
Bake at 400F for 12-15 minutes, until the scones are firm to the touch.
Serve with your favorite fruit preserves.
