Recipe for Strawberry Coconut Scones, biscuit textured bread with fresh strawberries and coconut served with warm honey butter.

I love scones for several reasons! First, they are simple to make, just stir together your ingredients, place on baking, tray, shape and bake. No long amounts of kneading or proofing time. Secondly, they can easily be transformed into any flavor and always come out evenly baked. I mean, I wish I could say that for every bread flavor combo I tried, but sadly some have gone straight from oven into the trashcan, wahhh! Thirdly, I like saying “scooone”, just kidding:) Scones pair wonderfully with coffee or tea, are a great breakfast/brunch addition, and can easily be frozen individually for a later snack!

Baking With Fresh Fruit

Fresh fruit contains a lot of moisture and can often sink to the bottom of batters. Meaning your fruit is not evenly dispersed throughout your batter/dough. This does not look pretty, nor do you get to taste fresh fruit in every bite. Which is the whole reason for baking with fruit, right?! So, toss your chopped or slice fruit in a little bit of flour before adding to your mixture. Not only will this help absorb some of the juices and keep you bread or sweet bake from being too soggy, it will help suspend the fruit into the batter.

  1. Preheat oven to 425 F (220 C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl whisk together flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder.

  7. Place dough ball onto lined baking tray.
  8. Mold into a flatter 8 inch circle. Cut into 8 equal pieces.
  9. Separate the wedges slightly to allow heat to move between each piece while baking.

  11. Bake for 22-25 min, or until toothpick in center comes out clean.
  12. Cool on rack for 10-12 min before serving.
