Scone Mix Recipe
I feel like scones sometimes get a bad rep. Or, at the very least, they don’t get the center stage as much as they should. Everyone loves muffins or danishes, but if you have been overlooking the scone, it is time to give them a second glance.
Scones have the perfect balance of savory to sweet. They are just slightly saltier than a muffin, and a little less sweet, which makes them a perfect companion for a cup of tea or coffee; whether it is your first morning cup or a sweet treat after dinner.
Below, I have broken down the recipe so you can make the scone mix recipe ahead of time and keep it in a clean mason jar until you’re ready to use it. Then you just add in a couple more ingredients and you are ready to make scones!
Scone Mix Recipe
(Makes enough mix for 4, 8-scone servings, or 32 scones)
What You Need:
- 1 cup sugar
- 7 3/4 cups flour
- 1/4 cup baking powder
- 4 tsp salt
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and stir until well mixed.
- 2 1/4 cup of scone mix
- 1 tbsp grated lemon or orange zest
- 1/2 cup blueberries, strawberries, or dried cranberries
- 1 1/4 cup heavy cream
Grease a baking sheet and preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and mix until ingredients are combined and incorporated. Transfer dough onto a clean surface and gently pat and form into a round circle, about 1/4″ thick. Use a knife or a pizza cutter and cut the circle into 8 equal slices.* You can also form them into circles, similar to biscuits, if you prefer.
Transfer slices onto a greased baking sheet, leaving enough room for each piece to rise and bake for 35 – 40 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through.
*You can make these ahead (freeze for 4 – 12 hours) and they will hold together better.
