Cappuccinos, fruit juice, Anicka's famous scones, grapefruit, and smoked salmon hash were on the menu this morning, and I'm delighted that Anicka reminded me to copy down the scone recipe for posterity. So without further ado, here it is: the best scone recipe you'll ever taste.
Anicka's Famous Scones
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 c buttermilk
- 1 2/3 c flour
- 1 1/3 c oats
- 1/3 c sugar
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
- 1 stick butter + 2 tbsp
Mix the egg and buttermilk first.
Then mix all the dry ingredients. Cut in the butter and mix with your hands until pea sized. Don't overmix, warns Anicka.
Add the egg/buttermilk mixture to the dry stuff and gently knead. Form the dough into a 6" circle and cut into wedges.
Bake for 20-22 minutes at 400 (for us, they were done in 16 minutes so watch them carefully).
