admin, January 20, 2015

 

Serving Size: 18 scones

Ingredients:

  1. 1 ¾ cups flour
  2. 1 cup whole wheat flour
  3. ½ cup toasted sunflower seeds, plus more for sprinkling
  4. 2 ½ tsp baking powder
  5. ½ tsp baking soda
  6. ½ tsp salt
  7. ½ cup cold butter, cubed
  8. 1 cup buttermilk or soured milk
  9. ¼ cup Crosby’s Fancy Molasses
  10. 1 egg, beaten

 

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, sunflower seeds and salt.
  2. Cut in butter until it resembles coarse crumbs. (This can all be done by pulsing mixture in a food processor, carefully)
  3. In another bowl whisk together buttermilk, molasses and egg.
  4. Pour milk mixture into flour mixture and stir just enough to combine.
  5. Gather dough into a ball and on a lightly floured surface knead gently just until it comes together in a soft dough (4-5 times)
  6. Gently pat into a 7`by 10`rectangle and transfer to a parchment lined baking sheet.
  7. Score into nine squares. Score the squares on the diagonal to form triangles.
  8. Sprinkle with 2-3 Tbsp of sunflower seeds and gently press them in.
  9. Bake at 400 F for 20-25 minutes until golden and the centre no longer feels soft.
  10. Cool a few minutes before cutting.
