Buttermilk Scones

This month we have Buttermilk Scones to make. I was excited to use a tip from Shirley…I bought powdered buttermilk…game changer! How many times have I bought buttermilk only to use very little of it?! I ordered some online and it seriously couldn’t be easier to use. Such a great tip!!

These were super easy to mix, cut, and bake. I added a little sanding sugar on top but other than that, baked them as called for in the original recipe. There were some variations available, but I wanted to see what they tasted like before I changed the flavor…and also because I could use the leftover ones to get a jump start on next months recipe which uses these! 😍

I was expecting these to taste sweeter but I guess I shouldn’t have because there is very little sugar in them. 🤷‍♀️. We thought they could have used more sugar or flavor…they were quite bland, not really a keeper on their own. But that is ok…I will use them for the next recipe of bread pudding that uses them and we will see how that goes!

  1. Powdered buttermilk – I haven’t heard of it before but it’s a revelation. Thanks for the heads up about the sweetness (or lack thereof).

  2. Thanks for mentioning me in your post regarding the buttermilk powder. I don’t remember when I talked about its use. But there were times I was frustrated not being able to get fresh buttermilk. It has been a big help to have the powder ready for my baking and cooking needs whenever the occasion arises. I agree with you the scones can benefit from a little more sweetness.

  3. You and I are on the same page. I have used powered buttermilk before but it can be more watery than fresh buttermilk. I usually decrease the amount. On to the next recipe.
