Ginger scones

I really like scones. I only just discovered them back in Feb with fabulous scallion and feta cheese scones. They remain one of my favs. Since then, Ive tried:

-Avocado jalepeno scones
-Chocolate chip scones
-Cocoa scones
-Vanilla sweet scones
-Plain salty scones
-Almond coconut scones
-Apple scones

and now the latest are these Ginger Scones.

I altered the recipe slightly.
1.5 c unbleached all purpose flour
3/4c rolled oats
1/4c demura sugar
1TBS baking soda
pinch of salt
2t ginger
cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg
5TBS unsalted butter(a little more than 1/4c) cut into small pieces
handful of GOJI berries
1/2c buttermilk(or more if needed)
2.5 TBS unsulphured molasses
1t vanilla and a splash of rose water

Preheat oven to 400
mix all dry ingredients and mix in butter with fingers until crumbly. Mix the last three ingredients in a bowl. Stir the berries into the flour. Add the buttermilk mixture until it becomes a sticky dough. spread into a 1 inch thick circle and cut into eighths. Bake for around 15 mins.


If you are like me and relish gingery sweets, you may also like these ginger cookies.

Hi yum, Thanks for your kind words about my roses. Can I have the recipe for banana peppers? tempting paruppu usili photo. I have never tried purple potato, will it taste the same as the other potatoes. I bet it has good source of anti-oxidants too.

Thanks pushpa and nila!

Nila, I will post the recipe soon. About the potatoes, the taste was mostly like regular potatoes. Maybe very slightly more flavourful.
