Home-baked scones for breakfast on the weekend. These are really good ones.

Top Review by Sydney Mike

With the raisins, whole wheat flour, zest & buttermilk, THESE SCONES HAVE GREAT TASTE, & I'd happily make them again especially for a satisfying breakfast! Great with a fruity butter or even a sweet honey butter! Thanks for the keeper! [Tagged, made & reviewed in the Bargan Basement cooking game]

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sift together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, soda and salt.
  2. Blend in butter until mixture resembles coarse meal and stir in whole wheat flour, bran, walnuts and raisins.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together lemon rind, egg and buttermilk.
  4. Add to flour mixture and stir with a fork until it just forms a sticky but manageable dough.
  5. Knead dough lightly on a floured surface for 30 seconds and pat gently into a ¾ inch thick round.
  6. Cut out rounds with a 2 – 2 ¼ inch cutter dipped in flour and arrange on a buttered baking sheet.
  7. Form scraps into a ball, reshape and cut more rounds.
  8. Brush tops with egg wash and bake in the middle of a preheated 390F oven for 15-17 minutes, or until golden.
  9. Serve warm.
