Orange Raisin Scones

Happy Tuesday!!!

There’s so many reason why I choose to post on Tuesdays and Fridays.

I am often grumpy on Mondays.

My weekends are reserved for household chores. At any given time, and if you are lucky, you might find me on my hands and knees scrubbing the floors.

So, by the time Monday comes knocking the door, I am all but excited.

Some events occurred yesterday that ticked me off, big time.

Don’t ask me why..

Ok, if you truly need to know ;)

We recently had an issue with our lawn over the weekend. And we usually have someone to come and take a look at it on Mondays. Not only he came, inspected and handed us 3 different sky-rocketing price quotations for the fix — he was selling his services too. Lawn maintenance services with a contract.

Are you kidding me? The reason he was called out in the first place was to look at the existing problem, quote the price and that’s it.

Phew!

You’d think that was the only reason for my temper. But no.

I feel off the staircase. While going up. Duh?!

I am fine, but my feet and sides are a little bruised up.

Le sigh. First, the exhaustion from weekend chores. Then, the irritation from lawn guy and now, pain?

Guess, I’ve added insult to my injuries on a Monday, huh?!

In order to vent off my frustrations and aches, I baked on a Monday. Yeah, that’s what baking does to me. Its a calming effect. All aches and frustrations seems to melt away.

I’d happily go into a sugar coma just so I could forget about Monday blues ;) And, you should too!

I sorta feel proud of myself for not allowing a bruised feet and ego to mess with my baking mojo. I’d love to believe a delicious glaze has something to do with it.

Makes 8 delicious scones.

Dry Ingredients:

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup oat flour
  • 1/4 cup white unbleached flour
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp butter
Wet ingredients:
  • 1/2 whole milk at room temperature (or buttermilk)
  • 1 whole orange, zested + juiced
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Orange speckled glaze
  • 1/2 cup of powdered sugar
  • 3 tbsp orange juice
  • zest of 1/2 an orange

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line baking sheet with a silicon mat or wax paper.
  2. In a small bowl, add whole milk + orange zest and juice. Stir and leave it for a few minutes to resemble buttermilk.
  3. In a medium bowl, sift whole wheat, almond, oat and white flour with baking soda + powder & salt. Add sugar and combine.
  4. Using a pairing knife, cut butter into small chunks. Add it in the dry ingredients and crumble (with fingers or pastry blender) until the mixture resembles crumbs. Set aside.
  5. Once milk mixture slightly resembles buttermilk, add vanilla extract.
  6. Combine wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Do not over mix.
  7. Flour your hands & baking surface liberally. Scoop up the dough onto the baking surface, forming it into a 3/4 thick circled disk.
  8. With a sharp knife, divide scones into 8 wedges. Line scones on baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes.
  9. Prepare glaze by adding all of the ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine!
  10. Allow scones to cool completely before drizzling some orange speckled glaze. Or a lot. I won’t blame you, it’s addictive ;)

 

Similar to treating yourself to delicious desserts after a visit from the doctors — you either make up an excuse to stuff yourself silly with desserts, of just go with the flow.

I hope your Monday was pain-free in comparison. If not, share some of your kitchen or household mishaps. Pinky promise not to laugh about it.

If you promise not to laugh at mine, as well ;)

Poor you, I can totally understand that frustration when it’s on a Monday! Somehow Mondays just have that effect on everyone; is it because of the start of the week? It does not matter whether one is working or not, as everyone just dislikes Monday; it’s like a mass emotion in the air!:p
I know I am supposed to advise you on the anger management issue, but I am sure you have found such a perfect way to deal with it; by baking such lovely scones. Guess it doesn’t hurt to be angry once in a while too, it allows one to feel the emotion and to let out frustrations, as long as you know how to control it :D

Awww sorry to hear you hurt yourself. I’m always hurting myself in the kitchen, and out of it too. 2 years ago I slipped in the kitchen while making dinner and dislocated my knee. VERY painful! So a rather rushed trip to the emergency room was in order, and 12 weeks on crutches. More recently, last week in fact, I was making a tarte tatin and after I had retrieved the skillet from the oven and went to flip it over my hands slipped and the very hot handle from the skillet hit my chest and now I have a 10cm long burn on my chest. It’s slowly healing, but it’s quite visible unless I want to wear a turtleneck all the time.

Your scones however look wonderful!! I love scones, even though they are quite simple they always seem to be such a wonderful treat. I have to admit I only make plain scones, but I really do like the sound of your orange and raisin ones.

Amrita — Thanks dear, but there’s no chocolate in this recipe. It’s raisins :)

Glad you are ok and that baking helped cheer you up. I find cooking does the same for me. Love the whole grains in these scones.

Stunning styling as usual! I have to say though, that little milk jug, precious! I bought a little pink ceramic one the other day and I’m in love :)

Wheat flour scones! I’ve never seen it or had it. Sounds healthy and love the combination of orange and raisin – unique! I also like your milk jar… when I was in kindergarten, the milk was in that kind of jar. So nostalgic. :-)

These scones are delicious! I ground 1/2 cup of whole almonds with the 1/2 cup of almond paste from making almond milk yesterday. I also like the idea of most of the butter replaced by the milk and orange juice. I didn’t have enough orange for the glaze so I just added a few tablespoons of raw sugar to the mix to make up for it.

Hot tea and just-baked scones on a rainy day — can’t get much better than that. I recommend this recipe and will definitely make it again.

Thank you so much for sharing!
