Banana Scones

  • 1/2 ts salt


  • 2 Ts Butter, melted
  • 1 overly ripened banana(about 3/4 cup mashed)


How to make Banana Scones

Heres a recipe that I made after a few experiments with over-ripe bananas. It startes super easy with just flour, banana, and baking powder. I've added a few other things to round the taste out. They are like semisweet biscuits with the taste of banana.

  1. Preheat oven to 425.
  2. Mash banana and stir in melted butter.
  3. Mix together all dry ingredients.
  4. Stir dry ingredients into the wet mix. Stir just enough to incorporate all of the dry ingrediants. The less you mix, the more tender the final baked good.
  5. Flatten the dough on a floured cutting board to about 3/4 inch thick and cut into ~6 scones.
  6. Place these on a greased cookie sheet(I use a cast iron skillet) and bake for ~13 minutes until lightly browned.
  7. Remove from oven, let cool for 5 minutes, then eat.
