Time for Sweet Melissa Sundays! Today's treat was picked by Robin at Lady Craddock’s Bakery -- you can find the recipe for these delicious Orange Scented Scones here at her wonderful blog :) I baked these up in my Lodge cast iron wedge pan and they turned our beautifully.
Here is the crumbly scone dough before pressing together and into the wedge pan...just enough dough to fit!
Before and after baking shots...
We really enjoy scones and I was very excited to make these, in the Sweet Melissa Baking Book you have the option of using oat flour or grinding up your own oats in the food processor. I used the food processor and purposely left my oats a little chunky, I love oatmeal in baked goods.
I accidentally skipped brushing the tops of the scone dough with cream and sprinkling with sugar before I put them in the oven, so I made a glaze to drizzle on top after they were baked with 1/4 cup frozen orange juice concentrate (warmed up in the microwave) and about 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar, I added about 1/2 cup powdered sugar at a time to the melted orange juice concentrate and just kept adding until I reached the right consistency. This glaze was great and packed a strong orange punch.
The scones were amazing. Light and fluffy and a little crumbly from the oats. Very tender and flavorful, I'm the kind of person who loves scones with butter and jam or honey but these didn't need any toppings and were wonderful plain with hot tea for breakfast. Thank you for a wonderful pick, Robin! This is a recipe I would make again for sure :)
