I've never been much on making these buggers, but love the taste of them when I buy them, & THESE ARE WONDERFUL! I didn't use the wheat germ or the bran this time, but fully intend to include them another time, as I'd like to know the difference in taste! Oh, yes, I also used a very rounded 1/3 cup of cranberries! Thanks for sharing! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Zaar Stars Recipe tag game]
This is a keeper! Light and lightly sweet this is a great on the go breakfast or afternoon snack. I didn't have wheat germ and used rice bran and it worked great. I think in the future I'll try the Whole wheat flour and maybe adding some brewer's yeast for more protein. I can't wait to try freezing them. I think they'll do great and will be a wonderful OAMC breakfast dish when I'm pregnant and hate to cook!
Marvelous scones. A perfect Sunday morning treat. I also used a heart healthy margarine and as well used half white and half whole wheat flours, double the wheat germ and no bran (didn't have any) and Splenda for the sugar. Currants were subbed for the cranberries. The orange is a delight and mixes well with the other flavors. Even with my heavier flour mix they are light textured and just plain yummy.

Very good recipe for scones! they baked out light and fluffy, I grated in frozen butter instead of mixing in with my fingers something I have done for a long time lol! thanks for sharing Sharon!...Kitten:)
These were fun to make and very tasty. There's just enough gooey kneading involved to give the impression of hard work, while not making an absolute mess of the kitchen. The texture was very somewhat flaky and very pleasing. They were quite moist and paired will with lemon and orange curds. These will be on the breakfast menu again.
Mmmmm these scones are delicious! The texture is great (and that's with using 4 tbsp non hydrogenated light margarine!) and the little morsels of fruit is such a treat. The orange flavor from the zest pulls it all together. I did have to add a bit more flour in order to roll it out but that tends to be normal for me when making scones. I will defintely be making these again. A must try recipe.
