Ingredients (14)

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup AP flour
  • ½ cup wheat germ
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 1/3 cup walnuts
  • ¼ cup oil
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp. orange zest
  • ¼ cup orange curd (or your preferred filling)

I like making these in the morning for my family. I mix the dry ingredients the night before so I can get started from the getgo the next morning. I used a homemade orange curd for the filling, but I guess you can sub any other filling if you’d like. The dough is pretty messy and wet, so you’ll want to flour your work area (and hands) when you’re making them.

Instructions

  1. 1Preheat your oven to 375°F. Oil baking sheet. You may choose to line the sheet with foil, but it tends to stick to the scones while they’re baking.
  2. 2Mix together the flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and most of the wheat germ, reserving about 2 tbsp. Stir in raisins, making sure they are coated.
  3. 3Whisk together the oil, egg, orange zest, and buttermilk in a separate bowl. Combine the wet and dry mixtures together.
  4. 4With floured hands, transfer the dough onto the baking sheet, and divide into 9-12 portions, depending on your preference.
  5. 5Spoon about 1 tsp. of your filling into each portion of dough, then seal the dough around it. Sprinkle them with the remaining wheat germ.
  6. 6Bake for about 20 minutes.
