Triticale and Currant Scones Recipe
Its getting to be too hard getting up early nowadays. (Ignoring the jibe on my side about "When have you ever been able to?" #$#$$). Anything before 8am, seems to look and feel like 4 am to me! Regular readers of this blog would know about my blah blah's for wholesome breakfast. Sounds great - as long as there is someone else whipping it up that is ;). But since my mother has ditched me and given me away to a person who thinks just like me in this matter, its not helping.
Triticale and Currant Scones Recipe
So what's one to do? Prepare it before hand obviously. Something that fills you up with wholesome ingredients and gives one the much needed boost in the morning. For me that means something with wholegrains, something with milk and fruits. Pancakes are great - but one needs something different, hence zeroed down to scones. I have been experimenting with triticale for a while now and have come to like few recipes with it. Triticale and Currant Scones Recipe Among the ones I tried, these triticale and currant scones was one. I have adapted this recipe from Oat scones by Chef and author Peter Berley to use my Triticale flakes and ingredients which I had on hand. No butter , No Sugar and No eggs are the special points. Dried fruits, wheat pastry flour, yogurt , honey and sun flower seeds give these scones the nutrition kick, making it delicious and hearty. I especially loved the addition of sunflower seeds since it gave these goodies some yummy crunch. Triticale and Currant Scones Recipe These were so hearty that, I did not have room for any toast and just about finished my Ginger Tea along with few slices of apple! It also made sure that I remained full until noon thus avoiding mid morning snack. Like this?

  • Cook time:
  • Prep time:
  • Yields: Makes around 12 - 14 scones
  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup rolled triticale ( or use rolled oats)
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1-1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 3/4 cup dried currants
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup honey (I thinned the honey a little with water since I was using this as a substitute for maple syrup)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
1. Preheat Oven to 375F. Grease two baking sheets (or line with parchment paper) and set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together flours, triticale, seeds, baking powder, soda, cinnamon and salt.
2. In another bowl, whisk together yogurt, currants, oil, honey and vanilla.
3. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold the wet mixture into the dry. Do not over mix. A few lumps here and there are perfectly fine. This will help to make lighter and fluffier scone.
4. Drop 1/3 cup of dough at a time on the baking sheet, 2 inches apart from each other.
5. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the scone comes out clean.
Serve warm. You can also enjoy them with little butter. Triticale and Currant Scones Recipe

1.Substituted sunflower seeds with walnuts( I don't like SF seeds)

According to ayurveda, one should never cook honey (or even heat it) because then it turns into poison

Is there another name for triticale? I live in Delhi, India and am unable to find any grain by this name.

I am not sure whether this is available in India. You can use rolled oats instead

I have never used the tritiwhatever before :-D but these scones are screaming pick me up.

By Indhu on Jan 12, 2010

I love scones... I have a question.. How do you store these? This recipe yields about 12-14 scones... Can we freeze them after baking? Or do we flash freeze them before baking and then bake on demand? :)

Its a good question (and that means I dont have a good answer ;) ). Its winter out here and I just kept them outside inside a zip lock bag for one whole week and its still doing great. I have only one left over..But I am sure u bake and freeze them. Cool them completely first, then wrap them airtight. Freeze them. For serving, defrost them first by covering them loosely and letting them sit on a counter at room temperature. Then warm them either in the Oven or microwave them for few seconds, whatever works for you. Hope this helps :) --DK
