Wheat Flour Peach Scones

Wheat Flour Peach Scones

I have an peach which is alone and lonely in my fridge. As I love peach cobbler very much I want to cook some thing with my lonely peach. I goggled and found this recipe "Peach Scones".  As per wiki Scone is a single serving cake or quick bread made with wheat, barely or oatmeal using baking powder as a leavening agent....

I found recipes using all purpose flour and sugar. But I don't like to use both much in my cooking so I replaced them with whole wheat flour and brown sugar / Jaggery / Bellam. Before making and tasting these scones I want to reduce my quantity to 6 as I don't know how they gonna taste. But this time I will double my quantity as they were so tasty. We can have them as breakfast or at tea time. One more reason I like them as they are not too sweet and contain a fruit in it.

  • Better to use unsalted butter, if using salted butter no need to use salt.
