Roasted Cumin and Poblano Whole Wheat Scones (Eggless)

Savory Scone

When someone mentions scones, the first thing that comes to mind are Raisin Scones that go so perfectly with butter and jam and a cup of hot tea. I love them and make them every so often. More recently though I love baking savoury scones that also taste wonderful with butter, are perfect with a cup of soup, and taste great cold too.

I made a batch of these delicious Roasted Cumin and Poblano Scones a couple of months back, but the post has just been sitting here at the desk of my virtual kitchen waiting to be shared. So here goes, I do hope you will like them and try them too!!

11/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 tbsp vital wheat gluten
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
Salt to taste
2 poblano peppers, chopped very fine
1 medium onion, chopped very fine
1 tsp cumin seeds
3/4 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup water
2 tbsp olive oil

Savory Scone Recipes

  1. Place the cumin seeds onto a griddle and roast on a gentle heat until they expand, change color, and become fragrant. Remove immediately onto a plate. Cool completely.
  2. Once cool, grind the roasted seeds to a powder.
  3. Soft together the flour, vital wheat gluten, salt, baking powder, and soda. Add the roasted cumin powder.
  4. In a large cup, blend together the buttermilk, water, and olive oil.
  5. Add the chopped vegetables into the dry mix. Pour all of the wet mix onto this.
  6. Using a fork bring all the ingredients together. 
  7. Knead gently, and the turn the dough out onto a baking tray. Pat down gently into an 8 inch circle.
  8. Cut along the diameter to create eight slices.
  9. Bake in a pre heated oven at 375F for 20 - 25 minutes.
  10. Remove from oven, cool for 5 minutes on the tray. 
  11. Enjoy warm with butter.
