A Recipe: Banana Scones With Chocolate Glaze

Looking up and looking down. The scenes are just about the same. Pretty colored leaves.

Here's the scone recipe that I meant to post here a few days ago. Thanks for the reminder Esme!

Banana Scones With Chocolate Glaze
{Yield: 8-10 scones}

1/3 cup softened Smart Balance (butter, margarine, etc.)
½ cup vanilla rice milk (other milks, cream, etc.)
1 egg
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tsp. baking powder
2 ½ cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
scant ¼ tsp. salt
½ a banana (preferably very soft)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Take out baking sheet and dust with a little flour. Use your hands to spread the flour over the sheet.

In large bowl, use a mixing spoon to combine butter with sugar, vanilla, and egg. Mash in banana. Add in salt, baking powder and some of flour. Stir well then add rice milk and the rest of the flour. Stir until combined. Use your hands to form a ball from the mixture and place onto baking sheet. All the flour may not be completely combined. Pour excess flour onto the ball.

Use your hands to continue forming the dough. Add a small amount of additional flour if dough is too sticky to work with easily. Press dough down into a stretched out circle. Cut dough into 8 pieces by cutting in half vertically and horizontally and then cut those pieces in half. Separate pieces from each other on the baking sheet. Scones will rise and spread out.

Alternate method: Spread out dough using your hands and use a circle cookie cutter or an upside down glass to cut out scone rounds.

Bake for about 25 minutes. Scones should be lightly browned. Let cool for about 5 minutes. Spread on frosting or glaze if you like.

Chocolate Frosting ~ Glaze

~ 3-4 T Smart Balance (butter, margarine, etc)
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 T cocoa powder
1 T vanilla rice milk (other milks, etc.)

Combine ingredients and stir well until smooth. To make the frosting more like glaze, add a little more milk.

Enjoy and have a good weekend! It's going to be a nice one for baking. Let me know if you try these. I really liked the subtle banana flavor.
