Whole Wheat Scones

I love having scones with unsalted butter sipping a nice cup of strong brew. While I was browsing through the internet today, I came across a very simple and fast recipe to bake scones. I've made some alterations in the original recipe, i.e I replaced all purpose flour with whole wheat flour and buttermilk with yogurt. This is my first attempt for baking these tiny little breads, therefore please excuse me for the uneven shapes.

2¼ cup whole wheat flour
½ tsp baking soda
1 tbsp baking powder
½ cup unsalted butter
¼ cup sugar
½ tsp salt
¾ cup yogurt mixture (3 tbsp yogurt)
½ egg
1 tbsp milk
In a large mixing bowl, add in flour, baking powder and baking soda and mix well. Sieve 2-3 times
Add in sugar and salt. Mix well.
Preheat oven to 200ÂșC. Line a baking tray with grease-proof paper.
Add in butter cubes. Use fork or tips of fingers to cut butter into the flour mixture until it forms coarse crumbles. (See pic. 1)

Beat yogurt, milk and egg until well combined.
Gently fold the yogurt mixture into the dry ingredients, mixing lightly just until no dry flour is visible  The dough will be wet and sticky.(See pic. 2)

Shaping the dough
Sprinkle flour lightly on both the dough and the work top. Make a elongated shape of the dough and  cut into small balls .Sprinkle some flour if the dough is still wet. (See pic 3)

At this stage the dough will still be wet and loose.
Then press the dough down to form either a circle or a rectangular.(See pic 4 & 5)

Options for baking

  • Dip the top lightly on the egg wash and then brush it with the remaining egg wash again. Place them on a baking tray, at equi-distance
  • Bake for 15 mins (depending on the shape and size of your scones) until golden brown on top.
  • Turn the baking tray over if the scones are not evenly baked.

Let it cool on a rack and serve warm. Alternatively, let it cool completely and store in an airtight container or keep in the freezer.
Cut the scones into half and spread butter/ jam onto it. And, it is best enjoyed together with a cup of coffee or tea!
