Whole Wheat Breakfast Scones

These whole wheat breakfast scones are excellent for breakfast or brunch with scrambled eggs, bacon or ham. Serve with your favorite jam or marmalade.

Perfect for lazy mornings or even lunches where you want to take the time to really savor this pleasant start to your day.

But they are just as enjoyable served with a bowl of homemade soup and a favorite cheese.

Scones are just like baking powder biscuits, easy to make and quick. Served hot from the oven, everyone is impressed.

Word of warning! Use a gentle hand to knead these to give them light and fluffy. This isn't heavy duty bread dough.

Whole Wheat Breakfast Scones


3 tbsp granulated sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup butter or margarine, chilled
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/3 cup milk
1/2 cup raisins or dried cranberries, cherries or blueberries


1.    Preheat the oven to 425°F.
2.    Combine dry ingredients - the sugar (reserving 1 tsp of sugar), flours, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and baking powder - in a bowl.
3.    Cut in butter with a pastry blender or two knives. The mixture should resemble coarse crumbs.  
4.    Reserve 1 tablespoon of the beaten egg aside. Add remaining egg, raisins and milk to the flour mixture and combine gently.
5.    Sprinkle flour on your kitchen counter, turn out the flour/egg mixture and gently knead about 5 times.
6.    After kneading, pat the dough into a 3/4inch thick circle.
7.    Divide into 8 wedges.
8.    Place the wedges, well separated, on a greased baking sheet, brush with the reserved egg and sprinkle with remaining sugar.   
9.    Bake in the preheated oven for about 18 to 20 minutes or until nicely browned.
10.    Serve hot from the oven.
