Ginger Scones

A light and buttery scone with a good hit of ginger flavor.



Step: 1

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Step: 2

Whisk flour, sugar, ginger, cardamom, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together until thoroughly combined. Grate in frozen butter using a box grater. Toss until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Mix in chopped ginger.

Step: 3

Whisk buttermilk, egg, and vanilla extract together in a small bowl or measuring cup until thoroughly combined. Add to dry ingredients and mix just until no dry clumps of flour remain; dough will be somewhat sticky.

Step: 4

Turn dough out onto the prepared baking sheet. Gently press dough together into an even 7-inch circle. Lightly flour your hands if dough is too sticky to shape. Cut dough into 8 triangles using a bench scraper. Space scones 1 inch apart on the baking sheet.

Step: 5

Whisk egg and water until combined. Gently brush the top of each scone with the egg wash. Sprinkle with coarse sugar.

Step: 6

Bake in the preheated oven until scones are lightly browned, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring scones to a wire rack to cool completely.

To made this in a breadmaker , add all the menus to your breadmaker and follow the makers instructions.

A dough’s first rising can be make in the fridge overnight . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great timesaver , as you can start it yesterday , then finish it off the next day.
