Do you need a quick and simple go-to biscuit or scone recipe? I know there are many times when I have run out of bread or feel like something different for breakfast. A scone is a great go-to for breakfast or anytime side items. It makes a great snack with butter, jam, and cream.
Here is a list of what you will need and feel free to watch the video to see how easy this is to make.
You can’t go wrong with a simple basic scone recipe. I found this recipe on another YouTubers site (her site is Rhoda Stone). I took her basic recipe and transformed it into my own recipe. So below are the basic recipe that you could use and then also the other two that I created from the basic scone recipe. Comment below if you try this recipe and tell me what you think and what you created.
Basic Simple Scones:
2 cups of flour
1 tablespoon of baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons sugar
6 tablespoons of butter
Mix your dry ingredients together
Next cut in the butter
Add 1 beaten egg and milk to mixture
Mix all together
Next add to a lightly floured counter and roll into a ball
Cut into 8-10 triangle pieces
Place on a cookie sheet
Beat 1 more egg
Lightly brush the top of the scone with an egg wash
Bake at 350 for 12 minutes
How to change this up with a twist?
Do the same above but add 1 teaspoon almond extract to the wet ingredients
After giving he egg wash sprinkle with sugar and add slivers of almonds to the top
Bake as normal
Orange Marmalade Scones:
Do the same as the above basic scone recipe and add 1 teaspoon of orange extract to the wet ingredients.
