Recipe Shared by Ms. Ashan G.
2 cups of all purpose flour
3 Tablespoons of granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
1 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
1/4 teaspoon of ground cloves
1/4 cup of cold butter
3/4 cup of buttermilk
1 1/2 teaspoons of banana extract
1/2 cup of fresh or frozen strawberries, chopped
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
In a bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, baking soda, ground cloves).
Cut in the butter until the dry ingredients resemble tiny coarse crumbs.
Blend in the buttermilk and banana extract just until moistened.
Very gently fold in the chopped up strawberry.
Turn your dough out on a lightly floured surface. Knead gently about 10 times or so.
You can use a rolling pin, but I just used my hands to create an 8" circle.
Cut into 8 wedges like a pizza.
Place the wedges individually on a large baking sheet coated with cooking spray.
Bake for 10 minutes at 425 degrees or until the scones are golden brown.
Serve warm, plain or with butter. (serve with tea or coffee for a wonderful treat!)
