Sweet Scones

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Scones will bake 16 minutes on a greased baking sheet.
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup oat bran
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp yogurt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
The recipe either makes four "drop scones" (balls of dough) or one large ball cut into quarters. If you do the latter you get traditional wedge-shaped scones, but be sure to spread them apart before baking or the interior corners will not bake well.

The sugar and oat bran make the scones tasty enough to eat plain. If you plan on putting jam or lemon curd on the scones then you will not need as much sugar.
