Sesame Scones

I love scones with a little texture.  A nice addition to the classic scone mixture is sesame seeds which once tasted n the oven provide a delicious pop to the flavour of a classic scone!

Sesame Scones


  • 2 cups unbleached all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup well-chilled unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon oriental sesame oil
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg beaten to blend (for glaze)
  • Sesame seeds

Preheat oven to 200 celsius.

Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt into a medium bowl. Cut in 1/2 cup butter until coarse mixture forms.

Make a well in centre of dry ingredients.  Add 2 eggs, honey, sesame oil and 1/3 cup buttermilk to well;  blend with fork.  Stir into dry ingredients, adding buttermilk to form sticky, but workable dough.

Gently pat dough into 1 inch-thick round on floured surface.  Cut dough into 10 wedges, cutting straight down with sharp, floured knife.  Brush each wedge lightly with glaze.  Place sesame seeds on plate.  Dip the glazed top of each wedge into the seeds.  Arrange sesame side up on a baking paper on a baking tray.  Bake until golden brown for 12 to 15 minutes.  Serve Hot.

Cocinar, comer y ser feliz,
