Quick and Easy Scones

Matt’s Marvelous Mouthwatering Morsels on Monday: Quick and Easy Scones

Rise and shine! Scones and coffee for breakfast!
Today’s blog post touches on something near and dear to my heart. That’s right dear reader, we’re returning to sweet pastries! Tea time or a special treat for breakfast, I can’t think of a single time of day that a scone couldn’t make better! The best thing about this recipe is that you can put in whatever you have! Following last week's thread about freeze dried fruit, this makes a great triple berry or blueberry scone. I also love chocolate chip and pecan. Oh and orange is so good too (just like Panera!).

Makes 4 large scones, perfect for the Omnia stovetop oven.

The ingredients:
1 1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup sugar
pinch of salt
1/4 stick (2 tablespoons) cold butter
1 egg
1/4 cup milk

Flavor options:
2 tablespoon key lime, lime, lemon or orange juice
zest of fruit of choice
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 nuts 
1/2 cup fruit/berries
2 tablespoons of juice, if you have it (if you hydrated the berries, for example, use the juice!)

The process:

Mix in butter until it sticks into crumbly balls. 
Mix flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in mixing bowl. Mix in butter with a fork until crumbly. 
This recipe is perfect for our Omnia stovetop oven!
Add in egg, milk, juice and zest and mix to combine. Plop a quarter of the mix into the Omnia and cook until brown on the bottom and springy on the top.
Chocolate Chip and Pecan! Yum!

  1. Is Matt available for hire? I'd like to wake up to these scones in the morning :-)

    1. Of course he is, we're cruisers! I think our current rate seems to be about 20 cents an hour, before expenses.

  2. Those look delicious! I'm with Ellen. Is Matt for hire? I can't tell you the last time David cooked anything, let alone baked. But then again, it is a bit scary whenever he does. ;-)

    1. Sometimes, I get inspired and decide to bake something chocolately. But then I can't find anything, then something is burning, something gets dropped, the swearing is possibly followed by crying, and Matt decides to just take over and try and salvage the situation. So I guess there can only be one in any relationship!
