I love eating
scones for breakfast, especially when they're warm from the oven. These
Cranberry Oat Scones are perfect on chilly mornings, as their texture is hearty
due to the addition of rolled oats. There are no eggs in this
scone recipe and instead of milk, I've used buttermilk, which gives the scones
a more bread-like texture. I've also flavored the scones with orange zest
and dried cranberries, but you could use dried cherries, raisins, or currants.
If you are not familiar with buttermilk, it has a nice thick creamy texture with a rich
tangy buttery taste that makes baked goods tender. It is now
commercially made by adding a bacteria to whole, skim, or low fat milk. However, in the past it was the liquid left over after churning butter. You can
a very good substitute at home by adding 1 tablespoon of white distilled vinegar,
cider vinegar, or lemon juice to 1 cup (240 ml) of milk. Let stand about 10
minutes at room temperature before using. Another alternative is to use buttermilk powder.
Oatsare a cereal grain
that is rich and flavorful and comes in many forms. Very popular
in Northern Europe, Scotland and Ireland. Oats to be consumed by
humans are cleaned, toasted, hulled to become what we call oat groats. The oat groats are then steamed and flattened to become
rolled oats or old-fashioned oats. They take about 15 minutes
to cook. Old-fashioned rolled oats are not to be confused with
quick-cooking rolled oats. These are oats have been cut into
pieces before being steamed and rolled into thinner flakes. They
cook quickly, about 5 minutes, but their flavor and texture are a little
different than old-fashioned rolled oats.
