TWD: Buttermilk Scones


Scones are one of my favourite kind of baking-goods. I am really no gifted baker (although I practice since more than four years now. Four years! Unbelievable!). But I guess I have a bit of a "biscuit hand", what applies, I believe, also to scones. The bad I am at mastering cakes with creams and tartes, the better I am when it comes to "dry" things like shortbread, breakfast treats or easy-fast recipes like brownies. And cheesecakes. But that's another story, I am deviating, sorry. This should be about the fabulous Buttermilk Scones, and not about me :-)

So, Buttermilk Scones are a fast and easy recipe as most scones are. I like the buttermilk flavour and consider this to be on my top-3-scones recipe list. The basic dough can be combined with almost everything that goes with scones, I guess. I gave dried apricots a try (one of my all-time-favourite ingredients for scones). Baking time was a bit longer, more like 17 mins. And I didn't glaze them as I don't like them too much on the sweet side.

If you like scones - do them! They are as fast and easy that you can even do them before Sunday breakfast and end up with a wonderful treat in the morning.

For the recipe, have a look at Dorie Greenspan's book. And to see what the rest of the TWD-group made out of this simple, basic but nevertheless delicious recipe, visit the blog!

  2. Naja, fleißig ... :-) Ich schaffs auch nicht ganz so wie früher, obwohl es ja nur mehr alle 2 Wochen ist. Aber es gibt mir ein bissl Struktur im Monat und man macht dann doch oft Sachen, die man sonst nie probiert oder sich getraut hätte, das find ich immer noch gut. Dafür komm ich sonst gar nicht mehr zum Backen, Kochen oder Bloggen im Gegensatz zu dir!

  5. It's not easy to have a good biscuit hand - I bet you're great at pie dough, too. Nice job!
