Scone Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Whole bran cereal
  • 1/2 cup Buttermilk
  • 1 Egg -- beaten
  • 1 Egg white
  • 3 tablespoons Butter -- melted
  • 3 cups Biscuit mix
  • 1/2 cup Granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Ground cinnamon
  • 1 Egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon Milk
  • 1 tablespoon Granulated sugar

Scone Preparation:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees; grease a large baking sheet. In a mixing bowl, combine the cereal and buttermilk; let stand for 3 minutes until the milk is absorbed. Stir in the egg, egg white and butter; set aside. In a separate bowl, stir together the biscuit mix, sugar and cinnamon. Make a well in the center and add the bran-egg mixture. Mix until the dough clings together. Turn out onto a floured board and knead gently for 10 to 15 strokes until smooth and well blended. Divide the dough in half. On the baking sheet, pat each half into a circle. Cut each circle into 8 wedges. Stir together the egg yoke, milk and sugar; brush over the tops of the circles. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes until golden brown. Serve warm.
