    windy_moon's Note:

    Steel cut oats are my new passion. I haven't tried this recipe yet, but will shortly. It comes from Bob's Red Mill, an excellent brand of healthy grains, etc. The recipe seems a tad fussy, but my mouth waters just thinking about the yummy (and healthy) end result.

      I tweaked this recipe because when I added the 1/2 cup oat flour and 1/2 cup wheat flour and 1/4 cup white flour - it just wasn't enough to make a dough - I got a watery glob of stuff after I added the soaked steel cut oats. I added more flour and an egg - about a cup more flour in total and still that wasn't just enough and I wound up spooning these onto a baking sheet. The texture was not what I wanted. I have corrected the recipe to reflect the added flour. If you are any kind of baker and have worked with dough, you will see what I mean. The taste of these was ok, but with the revisions (if Food approves) makes this recipe doable. I also added 1 cup of blackberries which made a lot of difference in taste/flavor.

      I've made a lot of scones and these are extremely dry and bland. 1) One key ingredient that is missing is either an egg or a few more tablespoons of butter to help bind the ingredients together and give the dough more moisture. I added 3 more table spoons of butter 2) Another key element it needs is more sugar. I added a 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/4 cup granulated sugar. It still wasn't that sweet even with these additions. 3) I would also reduce the amount of oats next time to 3/4 cup unless you like yours super chewy and gritty. Be sure to soak them for at least 25 minutes. I think these simple changes would make the recipe a lot better.

      I personally thought these were wonderful, I loved the very grainy texture and the sweetness of the currants. I spread a little olive oil based butter on them while they were still warm and thought they were just great. Those who would prefer a sweeter scone, the type with white flours and icing (also very good) may not fully appreciate this hardy recipe. Thanks so much for posting.
