I like to eat. I like to bake, what a great combo. Scones are a take it or leave it for many. For me I like them with coffee in the morning. I like them with something in them.
This batch is based on a couple of recipes for sourdough biscuits and a scone. If you look closely there is next to no fat involved so these are actually very healthy compared to a scone made with cream or whole milk. An added bonus for anyone who has to watch fat intake.
Sourdough Dried Fruit Scones
- 1 c sourdough starter
- 1/2 c milk (I use non-fat)
- 2 1/2 c flour
- 2 T sugar
- 3/4 t salt
- 1 t baking powder
- 1/2 t baking soda
- 1/4 c dried blueberry
- 1/4 c dried cranberry
- 1/4 c dried raspberry
- milk + scant 2 t turbanado sugar
Combine first 7 ingredients. Mix with dough hook until just coming together as a ball. Add dried fruit knead 1 minute until ball forms. This is a sticky dough.
Scoop out onto well floured board. Pat dough into roughly a 6 X 8 square. Cut in half widthwise. Cut in half lengthwise. Cut each resulting rectangle on a diagonal. Place on silpat or parchment paper. Brush with milk and sprinkle with sugar. Let rest 5 minutes.
Preheat oven to 375F. Bake 30-35 minutes.
Enough of the blogging for one day, it is time to have another of those babies. Can't wait for the morning breakfast to get another one in me either!
