Why You'll Love This Recipe

Tender & Moist: These scones are tender, cakey, and moist. They make the perfect pairing to your morning coffee or are just as delicious as dessert with a big glass of milk!

Perfectly Spiced: I use a mix of cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg for a perfectly spiced scone. This combination of spices just screams fall and with the addition of the maple icing, it’s a perfect pairing of sweet and spice.

Eggless: These Spiced Maple Scones are naturally eggless, as I use a mix of Greek yogurt and heavy whipping cream. Eggless bakes can actually be more moist than baked goods with eggs (something I explain more in my book Effortless Eggless Baking!). So this is one of the reasons why I love making eggless baked goods!

How to Make Spiced Maple Scones

Step 1

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Step 2

To make the dough: In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add the flour, cane sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and sea salt and mix for 2 to 3 rotations to combine the dry ingredients. 

Using a large grater, grate the butter and add into the mixer with the flour. Do not mix yet. 

Add the Greek yogurt and heavy whipping cream and mix on low until combined. You will have to finish with your hands as it will seem dry, that’s okay, just mix together with your hands to combine.

Step 3

Using your hands, form the dough into a round disk that is about 7-inches in diameter. Using a sharp knife, cut into 6 triangle pieces like a pie. Separate the pieces so they are spaced evenly apart.

Step 4

To make the topping: In a small dish, add the 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream for the topping. Using a pastry brush, brush the tops of the scones to coat completely.

Step 5

Place the baking sheet in the fridge for 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 400°F.

Step 6

Bake for 20 to 24 minutes or until lightly golden brown on the bottoms. Allow to cool completely on the baking sheet. (If you're baking at high altitude, be sure to check the Notes at the bottom of the recipe for high altitude baking time).

Step 7

To make the glaze: In a medium bowl, add the powdered sugar and maple syrup. Whisk until you have a smooth glaze. Using a knife or spatula, slather the glaze on top of each scone.

FAQ's

What if I don't have a box grater?

If you don't have a box grater you can cut the butter into tiny chunks with a sharp knife.

What can I use in place of Greek Yogurt?

If you don't have Greek yogurt, you can use regular plain or vanilla yogurt. Or you could also use sour cream if need be.

How do you store homemade scones?

Homemade scones should be stored in a cool dry place for just a couple days. They are best left out on the counter with access to open air to retain their flaky texture. I just leave mine out on a platter on the counter while we eat them for a few days. Do not put homemade scones in an airtight container or in a cake dome as they will just become soggy.

Why organic?

Why use organic ingredients in this recipe? You all know I’m a huge organic advocate, and I bet you may be thinking sometimes, Why would I even bother to use organic ingredients in something that is so sweet and indulgent? But, that is the exact reason why you should use organic ingredients! Sweet things need to have flavor in order to be good, otherwise they are just sweet and they don’t taste like much else. Organic ingredients are more pure than conventional ones, therefore they actually have more flavor than the non organic options. Say it with me, organic means more flavor! And not just more flavor but a more true and pure flavor. And organic ingredients are much healthier for you to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients!

So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.
