vegan mofo, day 3: scones.

didn't have time to post yesterday, but i'm making up for it!

these didn't have much of an apple taste, but they were really good. recipe adapted from river's version.

cran-apple scones
2 cups of whole wheat pastry flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
8 tablespoons of applesauce
1/2 cup dried cranberries
3 tablespoons apple juice

preheat oven to 350 F.
combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.
add in applesauce (you might use a little less), stir well, then add in cranberries.
add in apple juice and stir til just combined.
bake about 14 minutes until golden brown.

i enjoyed these english scones american-style--with a huge mug of so-strong-it-makes-you-wanna-puke coffee, which, by the way, i probably have about 8 cups of daily. so sad that i've developed such an addiction at such an early age . . . oh well.

I've been looking for a healthy scone recipe - this looks perfect!

River said...

Woohoo!! They look fantastically delicious! I love playing with recipes! Thank you so much for the shout-out!

I want some so-strong-it-makes-you-wanna-puke coffee, but my stupid heartburn has me drinking weak decaf.

I loved River's chocolate chip scones, then while in the kitchen one day I played around with the recipe and made lemon poppy seed scones...they were the best! I can't wait to try your recipe.

Me and Skippy...well actually Skippy made these and she loves chocolate chips anything, so that does not count, but them lemon poppy seed ones were to die for. You just wanted a cup of Earl Grey and put your pinky up while drinking it.

And I love apple cider. Yummo! I don't even drink apple juice any longer...who would after cider.
