Ginger Scones Recipe
• 2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
• 3/4 cup sugar
• 1 teaspoon baking soda
• 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
• 1/4 teaspoon salt
• 3/4 cup candied ginger
• 1 Tsp lemon zest
• 1 Tbsp grated fresh ginger
• 3/4 cup buttermilk*
• 10 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
* If you don't have buttermilk you can substitute with a Tbsp of lemon juice and 3/4 cup minus one tablespoon of regular milk.
1 Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
2 In a large bowl vigorously whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Stir in the candied ginger, lemon zest, and fresh ginger until evenly mixed.
Create a well in the center of the flour, pour in the melted butter and the buttermilk. Gently mix with a wooden spoon until the flour mixture is just moistened. Don't over-mix! The mixture should look very shaggy.
Divide the mixture into two balls, and flatten each onto a floured surface into a 1-inch thick, 6-inch wide circle. Slice each round into 6 wedges. Transfer to the parchment paper-lined baking sheet, spacing at least an inch apart.
5 Bake at 400°F for 18-20 minutes. Cool on a rack for 5 minutes before eating.
Makes 12 scones.
