  • cup AP Flour
  • 2 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 3/4 cup oat flour or finely ground oats
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar or muscovado sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter cold and diced
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk cold
  • teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg cold
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream for brushing on top



  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Use a food processor to combine the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and spices.

  3. Then add butter and grind into a sandy texture.

  4. Add the buttermilk, egg, maple syrup, and vanilla extract.

  5. Pulse until the mixture is just combined but not a ball, similar to making pie dough.

  6. Then turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Use hands to knead a few times. Then form a 9 inch disc.

  7. Use a pizza cutter to slice 8 even slices.

  8. Then place slices onto baking sheet, leaving room between them.

  9. Brush each scone with heavy cream.

  10. Bake 15-18 minutes, until golden brown.

  11. Once you remove the scones from oven make the glaze.

  12. Put butter into saucepan and melt. Then Combine all of remaining glaze ingredients. Use a small whisk to smooth. Remove from heat and spoon over the scones.

Recipe Notes

This batch can easily be doubled to make 16 scones. Divide dough into 2 discs and cut 8 wedges from each, baking on two baking sheets.
