Oat Scones


Homemade scones express love in a big way!

These easy oat scones are moist and rich, thanks to quick oats. Enjoy them fresh from the oven with homemade raspberry jam and maybe some clotted cream if you’re feeling extra generous.

What Is a Scone?

You might be wondering, “What’s a scone?” Well, let’s keep it simple. At TMP, we’re not picky about scones – we just love them in all forms. Whether they’re American, British, Irish, or any other style, we’re scone enthusiasts. To put it plainly, scones are like sweet biscuits. However, the details can vary from recipe to recipe.

In the U.K., scones have less sugar and butter compared to American ones. British scones are less sweet so you can load them up with jam without making them overly sugary. On the other hand, Americans prefer sweeter scones, often with added goodies like raisins, orange peel, currants, or chocolate chips. In this case, we’re going for a simple nutty flavor with quick oats.

The Secret to Amazing Scones: Yogurt!

Let’s be honest. What makes this scone recipe outstanding is a special ingredient that guarantees moist and tender scones every time. It’s not just any scone recipe; it’s a scone recipe with yogurt. Yes, yogurt – the baker’s ally. Here’s why we swear by baking with yogurt:

  1. Acidity Boost: Yogurt is slightly acidic, interacting with baking soda and powder. This boosts their lifting power, giving us the fluffy, airy texture we all love in scones.
  2. Moisture Magic: Adding dairy to baked goods ensures tenderness and moisture. Opt for full-fat yogurt, avoiding Greek yogurt. Greek yogurt, having excess moisture strained out, won’t deliver the desired moistness you get from traditional plain or vanilla yogurt.

Easy Steps for Making Scones.

Scones are delightful treats that can be easily made with the right recipe and a few helpful tips. Follow these simple steps to create delicious scones:

  1. Start with Cold Ingredients:
    Ensure your butter is cold, and if you have cold hands, that’s a plus! Cold hands help in making scones. Use a pastry cutter or your hands to cut the cold butter into the dry ingredients. If your hands tend to be warm, opt for a pastry cutter, fork, or knives to keep the butter cold.
  2. Mind the Mixing:
    Regardless of the method you choose, the key is not to over-mix the dough. Whether you’re folding in yogurt or adding oats, be gentle and mix until just combined. This ensures your scones turn out perfectly tender.

By following these easy steps, you’ll be on your way to enjoying homemade scones in no time!
