Day 221: Banana Scones with Maple Glaze
These banana scones with a creamy maple glaze are delicious in all ways imaginable!
First you get the taste of the maple syrup from the glaze, and soon get a big bite of banana! A perfect fall scone!
These are fantastic for a Sunday brunch and I love baking them! I'm always on the look out for new scone recipes!
I feel like I make a lot of scone recipes, but they're my favorite! I only like sweets that don't taste like it has a lot of sugar. These banana scones definitely fit my criteria and were a devoured very quickly. I also like the pair of maple syrup with these banana scones.
I love banana pancakes with maple syrup, so these scones were basically crispier versions of that!
|Level: 👩🏽🍳|Time: 35 minutes| Serves: 6-8|
1 cup mashed bananas (about 2 large ripe bananas)
1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
2 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 and 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 and 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
5 Tablespoons cold butter, cut into small squares
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoon pure maple syrup
1/2 tablespoon milk or water
In a medium bowl, beat the mashed bananas, yogurt, brown sugar, egg, and vanilla extract together. Set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg, together. Toss the butter into the flour mixture and combine it with your fingers until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Set aside. Pour your wet ingredients into the dry and knead to combine. Form into a disk (1" tall) and cut 8 triangles.
Place onto a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes in oven preheated to 400 degrees F.
Whisk together powdered sugar, cinnamon and maple syrup in a bowl. If the mixture is too thick, add some milk or water to thin it out. Drizzle onto scones.
