Equipment

  • measuring cups and spoons
  • large bowl
  • stirring spoons and whisk
  • pastry cutter
  • 2 small bowls
  • fork
  • cookie sheet
  • parchment paper

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups (325 g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) sugar
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) baking soda
  • 1/4 (1 mL) salt
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) chilled butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) chopped rhubarb
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) sugar
  • 1/2 (2 ml) ground cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400° F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Using a pastry cutter, cut the butter into the flour, until you have coarse crumbs. This can also be done with two knives or a food processor. Stir in the rhubarb.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs lightly and combine with the buttermilk. Add to the flour mixture and stir until just moist.
  4. On a lightly floured surface, turn the sticky dough out and knead lightly. On a baking sheet lined with parchment or silicone mat, pat the dough onto a 9-inch circle. Score into 12 wedges.
  5. In another small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle the dough. Bake for 20 minutes, or until golden. Serve warm.

    Hi Elizabeth,

    Thank you for your comment. That’s great you have rhubarb in your garden you can use.

    If you press the “print” button under “share this recipe,” it should give you an option to check “simplify page” with the other printing options (how many copies you want, etc). I hope that is helpful. Enjoy the scones!

    This recipe looks great and I am going to try it today with rhubarb from our garden.  Is there any way to just print the recipe only. Most recipe sites are printer friendly.  You don’t have to waste paper printing ads & other info. etc.  This recipe would have printed on 1 sheet of paper instead of 3.
