Babycakes, Try These Simple and Scrumptious Blueberry Spelt Scones


Babycakes Blueberry Spelt SconesFrugal Foodie Fridays: My in-laws were in town a couple of weeks ago and I wanted to make them a yummy but healthy breakfast, since a) they were staying in a hotel and a good breakfast really wasn't an option and b) they have a bad habit of skipping breakfast, but I knew a light pastry would hit the spot. Since they are quite English, anything that goes with tea (scones in particular) is a welcomed treat.

On a mission for the most nutritious scone recipe I could find, I stumbled across the Raspberry Scones from Erin McKenna of Babycakes and author of Babycakes: Vegan, Gluten-Free, and (Mostly) Sugar-Free Recipes from New York's Most Talked-About Bakery. This is one of the non-gluten-free recipes from Babycakes – it is made with whole grain spelt flour. It is my understanding that most of the recipes in Babycakes are gluten-free, but some do use spelt ingredients.

Anyway, this recipe for Blueberry Spelt Scones is a winner. Seriously, my fried food loving in-laws are far from from healthy when it comes to diet choices (nor do they follow a free-from diet of any type, but they loved these scones, as did I.
