I found this on the 'net in a hungry search for ever more scone recipes. This was listed as being a prize winner in a recipe contest for wheat germ. They don't contain egg so a true scone aficionado would probably say these are a biscuit not a scone.
- 473.18 ml all-purpose flour
- 158.51 ml wheat germ
- 9.85 ml baking powder
- 4.92 ml ground cinnamon
- 1.23 ml baking soda
- 1.23 ml salt
- 1.23 ml ground nutmeg
- 78.07 ml butter or 78.07 ml margarine, cold
- 1 large tart apple, peeled and finely chopped, about 1 1/4 cups
- 118.29 ml milk
- 59.14 ml honey
- 9.85 ml wheat germ
- 9.85 ml sugar
- 1.23 ml ground cinnamon
- In a large bowl, combine flour, wheat germ, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, salt and nutmeg. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
- Combine the apple, milk and honey; add to dry ingredients just until moistened. Turn onto a floured surface, knead gently 4 or 5 times.
- Gently pat dough into a 9-in. circle, about 1/2 inch thick. Combine topping ingredients and sprinkle over dough. Cut into eight wedges and place on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 15-18 minutes.
I think there may be something wrong with the liquid amounts, because gathering it to knead didn't quite work. Otherwise, we loved the flavor and are always greatful when we can get a healthy breakfast recipe.
