Regardless of how you might try, there are times when you need your sweets and fruit just won’t cut it. The only problem is all the calories that also with that especially if you love to bake. Therefore, my solution often is taking out one of my various scone recipes like this one. My Dried Fruit Multigrain Scones have three different grains with flour, quick oats and cornmeal along with dried mixed fruit, dried cherries or cranberries and raisins with enough maple sweetness from brown sugar and vanilla to delicately balance the sweet with tart in a delectable scone.
My Dried Fruit Multigrain Scones are simple to make without any creaming involved. Besides not taking much effort, they can be ready to eat in about twelve minutes once you pop them into your oven.
If you have any left, my Dried Fruit Multigrain Scones stay fresh and moist the next day. Some scones do need freshening up the next day in your microwave, but these really keep well.
The next time that you feel like you want to bake something that is sweet but not overly destructive to your diet, I hope that you’ll remember this recipe.
