An Assortment of Flavors
These scones are made with mashed bananas and a sourdough starter. Butterscotch chips and chopped walnuts are added to the dough, then the dough is formed into scones. A crumb topping is made with oatmeal, brown sugar, flour, butter and more walnuts. This crumb topping is sprinkled on top of the scones and then they’re baked. Super, duper delicious. You could drizzle the scones with a simple powdered sugar glaze.
Scone [SKOHN; Br. SKON] This Scottish quick bread is said to have taken its name from the Stone of Destiny. The place where Scottish kings were once crowned. The original triangular-shaped scone was made with oats and griddle-baked. Today’s versions are more often flour-based and baked in the oven. Scones can be sweet or savory and are usually eaten for breakfast or tea.
