Eggless Oats,Cornmeal N Orange Scones

Its quite a long, i prepared scones at home..today i prepared scones with oats, cornmeal and with grated orange zest as eggless also low fat version...Scone is a bread like biscuit, it is made with wheat,oatmeal usually with baking powder as leavening egent...The scone is doughier than American biscuit and frequently includes raisins, currants, date, and also with nuts..This scone can also prepared as savoury varieties with cheese, onion etc..Scones sold commercially are usually round in shape. When prepared at home, they take various shapes including triangles, rounds and squares.Coming to my eggless and low fat scones, i replaced the egg with apple sauce and i just used 3tablespoon of canola oil, this scones turned out prefect also healthy and really tasty with a crunchy texture coz of cornmeal i used in this delicious scones..Am sending this eggless scones to Madhuram's Low Fat Baking Event also sending to EFM June-Breakfast & Variety Rices by Srilekha...


2cups Quick cooking oats
1/2cup Cornmeal
1/2cup All purpose flour
1tsp Baking powder
1/2tsp Baking soda
1/4cup Sugar
3tbsp Grated orange rinds
1/4cup Almondnuts (chopped rougly)
1/2cup Applesauce
3tbsp Canola oil

Mix together quick cooking oats, cornmeal, all purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar,grated orange rinds, apple sauce, canola oil and chopped almond nuts and turn everything as dough....Dust the dough with few spoons of all purpose flour..roll the dough with a rolling pin as a thick disc..with a knife cut the disc into 8 wedges..

Transfer the wedges to a cookie sheet,leave atleast few space between the scones, meanwhile preheat the oven to 425F..brush the tops of the scones with canola oil...bake them for 20 minutes r until they get slightly browned...

Let them cool..serve them with coffee r tea..simply with any spreads..
