Scones, these little biscuits bring me many memories, with a unique texture, native of England, they are an English classic that won the hearts of everyone, but why are they so famous?
I believe that for various reasons, they are relatively simple to make, you do not need great skills to make them, they are fast and simple to make, and versatile, they can be either sweet or savory, or neutral, ideal to put jam on top, fruit, cheese, or the ingredient that you like for the snack time.
These scones, unlike the classic ones, do not have butter, nor refined white flour, but they have a texture very similar to the classic ones. They have lemon flavor and are full of blueberries. This combination is very summery, and the juicy berries in each bite are really pleasant, you understand what I say? Bite the scone, and feel the juice of the blueberries is really dreamed!
These scones have oat flour and also whole instant oats, as well as whole wheat flour, which keeps the scones full of fiber and with a great texture. They also have eggs, lemon zest, a lot of this, because there is never enough lemon flavor haha, and oil, which gives the texture that scones usually have thanks to the butter. They are also sweetened with muscovado sugar, and have a lot of blueberries, which undoubtedly make the difference.
