Let’s talk breakfast pastries, shall we? Between the donuts and the muffins and the danishes and the quick breads…there really is something for everyone. And let’s not forget the scones!
There’s something about scones that I absolutely LOVE…but does it not feel like we’re always forgetting about them!?
Maybe because we assume they’re hard to make, or maybe because we’ve had bad experiences with them in the past. Or maybe just because scones have never become a “thing” the way muffins or donuts have.
Whatever the reason, I’m here to change that. Because not only are scones THE most delicious little breakfast pastries (especially when you add fresh mango and vanilla glaze) but they’re also incredibly easy to make.
Ready in just 30 minutes and perfectly tender and crumbly, these Mango Scones are guaranteed to become a new favorite.
WHAT ARE SCONES?
Scones are small, lightly sweetened biscuit-like cakes made from flour, butter, and milk. They can be made plain or with added fruit, chocolate, nuts, and/or icing.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN SCONES & MUFFINS?
- scones are more bread-like; muffins are more cake-like
- scones are flatter, wider, and more irregularly shaped; muffins are round and uniformly shaped
- scones are often very lightly sweetened; muffins are usually sweeter
- scones have a more crispy exterior; muffins are soft and moist throughout
- scones are often savory; muffins are usually sweet instead
ARE SCONES MADE WITH EGGS?
Scones can be made with or without eggs. This recipe calls for one egg, which lends a richer flavor to the end product.
HOW DO I GET MY SCONES TO RISE?
- Be sure you’re using fresh baking powder
- Don’t over-mix or over-knead the dough
- Measure your flour properly, since too much flour will keep scones from rising properly
WHY ARE MY SCONES CRUMBLY?
Crumbly scones are the result of too much flour and not enough liquid. If your dough is crumbly when you’re shaping it into a disc, add a small amount of cream to the mixture. If your dough is sticky, add a small amount of flour to the mixture. You also want to avoid over-baking your scones, which can lead to a dry, crumbly texture.
HOW DO YOU SERVE SCONES?
Scones can be served for breakfast, at tea time, as the bread in a sandwich, or as a side dish with dinner. Since scones can be made either plain, savory, or sweet, they’re a very versatile bread.
HOW LONG DO SCONES LAST?
Scones will last 1-2 days at room temperature or up to 1 week in the refrigerator. As with most baked goods, scones are best served fresh.
HOW DO YOU RE-HEAT SCONES?
Scones are easy to re-heat, especially before you add the icing. To reheat scones, place them on a baking sheet and heat at 350° for 10 minutes, then add icing as desired.
