Maple Banana Walnut Scones

Maple Banana Walnut Scones

 

These scones remind me of banana walnut muffins and the wonderful smell of hot pancakes with maple syrup all rolled together. I could hardly wait for the scones to cool a bit to put the maple glaze on them.
Instead of racing around trying to find all the latest deals this weekend, I decided to make these. Did you hide from the crowds, or did you head out to get all your shopping done? I haven’t started shopping yet, guess I’ll have to start soon.

  1. We didn’t go out Friday either. Yesterday we went to the nursery to get a tree.
    These scones sound so good! I’m such a scone-aholic. Love love love these treats with my tea!

    1. Tried these yesterday and I was not happy with the texture. They were very dense and heavy…Like eating a brick! I folded the wet ingredients into the dry as instructed. Then, kneaded it 5-6 times, as instructed, which I thought worked against folding the ingredients together. The batter was very wet and goey, which was difficult to knead without adding additional flour. Did I do something wrong or is this how they are intended to be.

    2. I’m not sure why yours were so dense. Maybe too much kneading. The dough only needs to come together enough to roll and cut into scone shapes. The banana can be sticky, and the texture will depend on how ripe your banana is. You can freeze the banana so the batter isn’t so sticky.

  2. I must be doing something wrong. I had to add a lot more flour because my dough was so sticky and then they just tasted floury. Help! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. the dough was sticky, just use a scoop to divide it out without adding more flour next time.
