Homemade Plain Scones Recipe

Finally – a simple, delicious homemade scones recipe!   This is a one bowl recipe that creates crumbly soft scones – just like at a tea house.  The secret to this recipe is sour cream!  Serve with clotted cream, jam and tea.

Scones have been on my “must conquer” recipe list for quite some time.  Making the perfect scone is hard and I usually was left with something that was dense and cake-like and not crumbly and light, how scones should be.  But no more – scones, I’ve come and conquered you.   I’m in love with this recipe so much that I worry I’m going to be making these at least twice a week because they’ve become our new favorite afternoon snack (I always have one with my daily tea!).   Make sure to serve them warm with clotted cream and jam.  If you want to add fruit to them, you can totally can, just read my FAQ below for help.  Enjoy!

Finally - a simple, delicious homemade scones recipe! This is a one bowl recipe that creates crumbly soft scones - just like at a tea house. The secret to this recipe is sour cream! Serve with clotted cream, jam and tea.

FAQ for this recipe:

Do I need a food processor for this?
In theory, no, but it makes the scones much easier to make and gives them their signature crumbly scone texture.  If you don’t have a food processor you can mix by hand but just make sure you really get that butter to a crumbly coarse texture. To do this you might want to try grating the butter separately to get it crumbly.  In general I think a food processor is a kitchen must have and once you have one you will quickly be using it a few times a week and wonder how you lived without it.

Does my butter need to be chilled?
Yes, the butter should be chilled or frozen.  Using room temperature butter will not result in crumbly scones.

Can I add berries/raisins/chocolate chips to these?
Absolutely.  After making the dough add 1/2 cups of preferred add-in (I love raspberries) and stir them to combine with a wooden spoon. DO NOT PULSE FOOD PROCESSOR WITH ADD-INS!

Do I have to use sour cream?
Yes!  Sour cream is going to make them extra soft.    If you’re worried about them having a sour cream taste don’t worry – they don’t (and this comes from a girl who doesn’t like sour cream!).

How many servings does this recipe make?
I like to cut my dough into 8 big scones, but you could easily cut it into 16 smaller scones.

What is clotted cream? You recommend serving with it.
Clotted cream is life changing and whenever possible your scones should be enjoyed with it. It’s a rich, cream spread – kinda similar to butter but thicker and more sweet.  It’s kinda a butter/ice cream mixture if that makes sense at all.  Clotted cream is made by slowly cooking heavy cream for many hours until it thickens up.   You can google recipes on how to make it if you’d like.  It’s easy to make but takes lot of time and needs quite a bit of heavy cream.  You could also just buy it like I do.

Can I put icing on top of the scones?
You sure can but I’d recommend using a light icing if you do.   In my opinion clotted cream and jam are so much better on scones than icing.

I know it’s Winter and cold out but I can’t help it, I’m craving vanilla milkshakes!  A few days ago I woke up and couldn’t get milkshakes out of my mind.  So I rushed to the store, mumbling something to my husband about “going to the grocery store, need mikshakes now” as I slipped out the front door.   Quickly I was back home, pulling the blender out of the cabinet to make a homemade milkshake.    To go the extra milkshake mile I wanted to make it really special.  Answer?

Chocolate Birthday Cake Black Bean Brownies

Cake textured Rainbow Sprinkled Chocolate Brownies made with Black Beans and Applesauce!   These Chocolate Birthday Cake Black Bean Brownies are going to change your life!  

Right now I’m bean obsessed.  We’ve been cooking our dry black beans we grew in the garden during the Summer on cold nights and it’s been such a treat to enjoy those grown with love beans during the Winter.  I’ll be sharing a “How to Grow Black Beans” DIY soon because they’re so easy to grow and for me they’re one of the proudest garden accomplishments! I mean seriously how cool is it to grow your own beans?  So cool!  What else is cool? Using black beans to make chocolate brownies!  Did I mention that they’re extra delicious too?

Cake textured Rainbow Sprinkled Chocolate Brownies made with Black Beans and Applesauce! These Chocolate Birthday Cake Black Bean Brownies are going to change your life!

You might associate black beans with tacos, salsas and salads pretty easily, but hopefully I’m able to persuade you to try baking with them because they make delicious desserts too.  In the past I’ve baked with black beans, kidney beans, red beans and have had yummy results so I wanted to use our black beans in a new super chocolaty brownie recipe.  This recipe calls for 1 15 oz can of black beans which you’ll add with the rest of your ingredients into a blender and pulse until smooth.  Because I wanted to use my homegrown dry beans, I did a overnight soak of my beans and then cooked them to get my 15 oz can worth. It’s a little extra work with dry beans, but it’s worth it if you want to give it a try.  If not, it’s totally ok, just make it easier for yourself by using canned beans! 

Here’s my garden beans, dry and cooked.

Banana Bread Chocolate Frosting Muffins

Delicious Banana Bread Muffins that are topped with Chocolate Frosting!  These are made with 3 whole bananas and taste just like baked banana bread!

Do you love banana bread? I hope your answer is “Yes!” because I have a real treat for you.  I love banana bread myself.  I will admit as a kid I had too many pieces of convenience store banana bread topped with cream cheese.  Obviously nothing beats homemade banana bread, especially the smell that comes out of the oven when it’s done baking.  Can you close your eyes and just imagine that smell?  Hope you’re getting hungry!
Delicious Banana Bread Muffins that are topped with Chocolate Frosting! These are made with 3 whole bananas and taste just like baked banana bread!

 These banana muffins taste just (and smell just like!) baked banana bread.  To make them even sweeter, I topped them with a rich chocolate frosting.  Banana and chocolate are a great combo (like this ice cream) but it even tastes better in muffin form!

Christmas Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies

These Christmas Sugar Cookies are so soft because they are made with cream cheese!  Dip each cookie into vanilla glaze and then top with festive sprinkles!  Recipe makes 48 cookies.

I should have made more of these cookies because after taking some to work and keeping some at home, they were all gone pretty quick!  This is a classic sugar cookie recipe, but we’re updating it by adding cream cheese which is going to make the cookies even more soft and delicious.   Because I love taking cookies to the next step, I mixed some powdered sugar and milk together to make a light vanilla glaze frosting to dip each cookie in. Finally, add holiday colored sprinkles or chopped up candy canes on top of each cookie and they’re ready to go!   If you’re sharing these with others, make sure to keep a few for yourself because they won’t last!

Cinnamon Sugar Pistachios

Tracking Pixel This is a sponsored recipe post written by me on behalf of McCormick®. Recipe and opinions are my own.  

Easy to make Cinnamon Sugar Pistachios is a delicious snack recipe!  These are perfect for snacking on year round, especially for the holidays!

Pistachios are something of a necessity for the holidays in our house.  As a kid Santa would always leave me a bag of red pistachios in my stocking that I would eat right up with my pistachio red stained fingers.   As a adult I still get pistachios at Christmas time, but now I like adding some cinnamon sugar spice to them.  There is something about the smell of cinnamon that really gets me in the holiday spirit and has me humming Christmas songs.  These Cinnamon Sugar pistachios are perfect for family or solo snacking, but they’re also perfect for having a dish filled when friends and family stop by over for the holidays.   They’re great for a holiday present if you want to mix up the usual tins of cookies that you make.  Trust me, everyone will love these sweet pistachios!

Easy to make Cinnamon Sugar Pistachios is a delicious snack recipe! These are perfect for snacking on year round, especially for the holidays!

The scent of cinnamon takes me back to baking cookies with my Mom as a kid.  Every December we’d set a weekend aside to roll out cookie dough on the kitchen table.   A fun fact is that the rolling pin that we used to bake cookies with as a little girl now resides in my own kitchen.  Whenever I take the rolling pin out of the cabinet I immediately think of cookies!  We won’t be rolling out any dough for this recipe, but we will be using cinnamon to spice the pistachios.

Frosted Cucumber Cookies

Chewy yummy Frosted Cucumber Cookies are classic tasting cookies but made with 1 cup grated cucumber to add some nutrients! The cookies are soft and you will fall in love with the frosting on top!  It’s the perfect cookie to make for your family! 

Cucumbers aren’t just for making pickles with (although they are sure are yummy).  You can also bake with cucumber, similar to how you’d use zucchini or pumpkin.  All you have to do is remove the seeds and grate the cucumber to get a similar texture.  I’ve been using cucumber in multiple baking recipes this Summer, like this Sugar Glazed Cucumber Bread, and we’ve been loving it!

For this recipe I was inspired by Oatmeal Sugar Cookies that I used to love as a kid.  This recipe uses no oatmeal, but it has the same chewy consistency, along with the sugar frosting.    The cucumber is hardly tasted in this recipe, but slightly visible with beautiful green specks decorating the cookie here or there.   After family and friends tell you they love the cookies then you can tell them they are made with cucumbers.  They will be shocked, trust me, I do it all the time!

Mini Sugar Free Apple Muffins Made With Simple Ingredients!

Mini Sugar Free Apple Muffins made with simple, non-fancy ingredients that everyone has in their kitchen! Recipe makes 20 mini muffins.

I am taking a break from sugar right now and I have to tell you, it’s hard.   Everything has sugar in it!  Or if you go to the grocery store and read the labels, it seems like nearly everything does, even food that you wouldn’t have guessed.  English muffins? Sugar.  Those delicious “natural” raspberry preserves? So much sugar!  Multigrain bread? Sugar.  Spaghetti Sauce? Sugar (make your own!).   Granola and Crackers? Sugar.  It’s crazy and pretty depressing.

It’s nearly impossible to find a sugar free baked good in the grocery store so I started making my own with simple ingredients.    When I started researching sugar free recipes I was kind of put off by the complex, expensive ingredients that so many people were using.   If you are just starting to go sugar free you probably don’t want to break the bank buying these ingredients because you aren’t sure if it’s going to work out or not.  So I made these muffins with ingredients that you probably have already in your kitchen.

Sugar Glazed Cucumber Bread

If you are looking for a delicious recipe to use your garden cucumbers in – this is it!  The Sugar Glazed Cucumber Bread is made with 1 cup grated cucumber, similar to zucchini bread.  A powdered sugar glaze is poured on top once baked! 

This weekend there were many surprises in the garden. The monster pumpkin plant just won’t stop growing.  There was a 5 pound bag of potatoes waiting for us under the soil.   Carrots were pulled.   Jalapeno peppers were picked.   Cucumbers were spotted.   These are all vegetables I was hoping for, but maybe in a few weeks…. but in typical garden fashion, they make their own rules and showed up to the party early.  I couldn’t have been more happy to see them!

I saw a few baby cucumbers growing on the vine last weekend but somehow those babies transformed to multiple large cucumbers in just a few days, ready to be picked and enjoyed.    My Half Sour Pickle recipe is a favorite way to use cucumbers, but I was trying to figure out how to bake with them.  This Sugar Glazed Cucumber Bread was created because of that!  This bread is similar to Zucchini Bread, but instead is made with grated cucumbers.  After the bread cools, a delicious powdered sugar glaze is poured on top to make it really special.    This is our new breakfast recipe that I’ll be making weekly until the cucumbers finish in the garden.
