Eggless Banana Scone

Eggless Banana Scone

Now these scones ended up as a flop. I wanted nice, big scones. Instead? Pancake scones. Maybe it was the lack of eggs. Maybe it was the over mixing. Because I forgot that we do NOT want our scone batter to look silky smooth.

But what can you expect when I just bought a new electric mixer? Let it sit there beside me, not doing anything? It wanted to be used. It's like getting a sheet of bubble wrap and not being able to pop it. Pure torture.

Aha, they look bigger in a small mug

Now don't think just because they look funky that they tasted the part. They were actually very good. Tasted like a little slice of..banana? Perfect with tea. But then again, everything is perfect with tea. I have at least 1 pot of tea per day. Tea addict? I think so...

Now you can see just how pancake flat they look

What you'll need:

-1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
-5 tablespoons white sugar
-1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
-1/4 teaspoon salt
-1 ripe banana, mashed
-2 tablespoons milk
-1/4 cup sour cream
-3 tablespoons extra virgin oil


    1.   Preheat the oven to 350˚F
    2.   In a large bowl, mix together the banana, milk, sour cream and oil until smooth.
    3.   In a medium bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cinnamon and salt. Slowly add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients, mixing until fully incorporated.
    4.   Press the batter into a lightly sprayed pie pan and cut into wedges. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until golden brown. Place on wire racks to cool.

  1. Hmmmm... They don't look bad at all, you could just cut them into squares and call the, banana bread squares! Love the use of sour cream!

  2. Looks good not bad at all.. You could have named it flat scones :) It would have been more flat..
