Maple scones with maple glaze

I’ve been wanting to make scones for a loooong time and can’t believe it took me so long to make them. They’re so easy to make and are perfect for when you want to step your breakfast up a notch.

When we went to Paris last year, we went to Kooka Boora coffee shop about 4 times since it was the only place we liked for breakfast. They had delicious scones that were served with a fresh fruit marmalade that gave the scones the perfect touch of sweetness. Yep, we had the scones the four days we went there! (along with a quiche and a cappuccino). Since then I was more determined than ever to make scones and finally can say that I made some!

I’m excited to bake kinds of scones now. Maybe next time I’ll use some fresh fruit and/or make some marmalade to go with them. Yum! Any request?

Maple scones with maple glaze
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Serves: 8
Ingredients
  • For the scones
  • 3 cups unbleached flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 stick butter (4 oz)n cut into tablespoon-sized pieces. Make sure the butter is cold.
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • For the glaze:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 to 2 tsp milk
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.
  3. Using a pastry blender or your fingers, cut the butter into the flour mix. If you're not sure how to do this, see below the link for a demonstration video.
  4. Stir in the eggs and maple syrup.
  5. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead briefly. Roll dough out into a 1/2 inch thick round. Cut into 8 wedges, and place on the parchment-lined baking sheet.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
  7. Remove the scones to a wire rack to cool before drizzling with the glaze.
  8. To make the glaze, mix all of the glaze ingredients together in a small bowl until well-combined and thick.

Here is what I did to shape the dough. Please excuse the quality of the photos but these were taken with my phone for instragram 😀
