Orange scones with brown butter and orange glaze

Things that have not been around for a long time are scones. I already have some recipes in the blog and the same things are with me so only in exceptions. So far you can find me: classic scones, blueberry cream scones, quince scones with maple syrup and almonds, scones with raspberries, pistachios and white chocolate, scones with cherry filling, rhubarb buttermilk scones and strawberry cream scones. 7 varieties, there should really be something for every taste. And we covered spring, summer and fall perfectly. What is missing? The winter, exactly! So I thought back and forth and ended up at Orangen inevitably. Sweet, juicy organic oranges. In addition there is a glaze of brown butter and orange juice and there they are, the perfect winter scones: orange scones!

I still think of scones as THE perfect breakfast pastry. Whether breakfast or brunch and whether you are alone or have guests. Scones are lightning-fast and made from just a few ingredients, stirred together, baked to perfection and taste warm and fresh at their best. I do not like storing them so much, instead I'd rather freeze them fresh and then bake them again. I've already published a detailed picture tutorial on how to make the dough: bake scones - step by step.

Here, then, with a delicious orange flavor. For this, I finely rubbed the peel of organic oranges and stirred with a little orange juice under the dough. In the glaze come again the delicious orange aroma and you have the perfect breakfast in winter. Plus a freshly squeezed orange juice, nothing more is just not possible. Have a nice cup of cake and have a good appetite!

  • Flour for the worktop
  • FOR THE GLASUR:
  • 50 g Butter
  • finely chopped peel of 1 organic orange
  • 2 tablespoons of orange juice
  • ca. 150 g icing sugar

Preparation

1 Preheat the oven to 190 ° C top and bottom heat and place a baking tray with parchment paper.
2

Flour, Sugar, Mix baking soda and salt well in a large bowl.It should develop a crumbly consistency. I simply put everything in the Thermomix and mixed 3 x 1 second on the turbo level. Then pour into a bowl.

3

In a small bowl, whisk the egg briefly with the whisk, then stir the sour cream and orange juice under the egg.

4

Pour the Schmand mixture into the mixing bowl and stir together with the flour mixture with a wooden spoon, short and strong. Do not stir too long, but only until the flour is lifted. You do not have to make a smooth dough.

5

Take the dough out of the bowl and place it on the lightly floured work surface. Gently form into a circle and press lightly. Now divide a cake with a big knife into 8 equal pieces. Slightly offset the scones and place them on the baking tray with a little space. Bake in the lower third of the oven for about 25-30 minutes until the orange scones are lightly browned.

6

In the meantime, prepare the glaze:

7 Heat the butter over medium heat in a small pan until lightly browned and smelling nutty. Allow to cool slightly, then mix with orange zest and orange juice. Mix with a whisk so much sieved powdered sugar until a creamy consistency is formed.
8

Take the orange scones directly from the tin and put them on a wire rack. Spread the glaze while still warm and serve lukewarm or chilled.
