Old Scottish Oat Scones (Base Recipe)

A rustic and satisfying oat scone. Rich, dense and bursting with comfort, serve them warm and fresh, with butter or jam. And eat like it’s 1869!

Dry mix

1 bag GRAINSTORM Old Scottish Oat Scone Mix
Or mill your own

Wet mix

  • 1 large egg
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp milk

Other ingredients

  • 1 stick (½ cup) very cold butter, grated
  • a mixture of egg and heavy cream for glazing


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F, use convection if you have it; lightly grease a cookie sheet
  2. Dry mix: combine your fresh milled flour, oat flakes and other dry ingredients in a medium bowl and set aside (Or use 1 bag of our fresh stone-ground Old Scottish Oat Scone Mix)
  3. Wet mix: in a large mixing bowl, beat the egg, add cream and milk and whisk smooth
  4. Combine cold grated butter with dry mix, crudely, using a fork
  5. Final batter: add wet mix, folding gently until barely combined, working the dough as little as possible.
  6. Shape the dough: turn out onto counter, pat gently into a rectangle 1 inch thick
  7. Cut into triangles and arrange on cookie sheet, brush on glaze and sprinkle with sanding sugar
  8. Bake 13-18 minutes, or until the tops JUST spring back. Do not over bake.
  9. Remove from oven, wait 5-10 minutes, serve warm

This recipe makes 8 very large and very filling rustic oat scones!

Thanks so much for your awesome products! I like to mill my own if I can, but for the convenience I like the mixes too! However, the recipe for the scone mix seems to be MIA when I click on the link! Bring it back please?
