Coffee Scones with Maple is my recipe of the day with the Bread Bakers blogging group. We join forces once per month to post delicious bread recipes for you on a given theme. This month is for rye breads.

Coffee Scones with Maple

I had been wondering what I might make for this event since although I had some rye flour on hand, I did not have a lot. Much flour is in short supply during the pandemic.

I was at a bit of a loss until I saw an ad for a local baker (Sixteen Bricks) advertise rye scones as part of their “Saturday Bake Sale” (I love their breads!). It sounds very interesting and I wondered why I had never thought of making scones with rye.

And the wonderful thing is that these don’t require too much of any type of flour. After I dug around my pantry to see what would work with it, this is what I got.

I have to say these are fantastic! And you really can’t tell until you taste them how well it works together. But I guess Sixteen Bricks knew and my trust was well placed. Although I think they may have done theirs with chocolate and orange as flavor components. I’ve already forgotten.

Bill loves these as much as I do and it just encourages me to explore baking with rye even further, so don’t be surprised if  you see even more weirdly delicious creations from me in the near future. After all, I  have since found another bag of rye flour so I am “armed and ready”!

  1. Scones are great with rye since you don’t miss the lower gluten levels. In fact, perhaps that helps them to be fluffier. I don’t know why I don’t bake more with rye either, Sue. We love the flavor.

  2. Now that is innovative, we had to think out of the box due to no. Availability of flours or less flour and you have come with some delicious scones which will be perfect for breakfast

    • I was inspired by a local baker. All his stuff is fab so the trust was already in place.
