Brunch is served!
Grab your coffee (or a refill), grab a scone, sit back and relax.
The weekend is here! And a long weekend at that! Which means you have time to make breakfast or an afternoon treat for your family or friends!
These scones are amazing because they taste like banana bread and they have a gooey cinnamon and sugar center. They are not as dry as a typical scone because the mashed banana adds some moisture and the gooey center keeps them from drying out as well.
I will admit my dough was not chilled enough and my scones spread out like crazy in my pan, forming one giant scone…I was able to salvage them and cut them into some odd triangular and square shapes. Not the most beautiful things in the world…but they tasted great!
I hope you all have a wonderful holiday weekend! If you eat anything over the weekend that is crazy delicious, please make sure to tell me all about it! I love to hear what people are eating and making. Stay safe and make sure to indulge in something delicious at least once this weekend!
Check out that melted and caramel crusted bottom. So good!

Recipe: Cinnamon Filled Banana Scones
Makes 8 large or 16 mini scones
2 Cups Flour
1/2 Cup Sugar
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon
8 Tablespoons Cold Butter, Cut into squares
1/2 Cup Mashed Banana
3 Tablespoons Buttermilk
3 Tablespoons Butter, Melted
2/3 Cup Brown Sugar
1 1/2 Tablespoons Ground Cinnamon
Preheat oven to 400 Degrees.
In the bowl of a food processor combine flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
Add in COLD butter and pulse a couple times until pea-sized butter pieces appear.
In a small bowl combine buttermilk, banana and a slightly beaten egg. Add these ingredients to the processor and pulse a couple times until combined.
You want to make sure your butter is still cold. If not, toss dough into fridge or freezer for a few minutes to harden dough a bit.
Flour a flat surface and divide dough evenly into two equal discs.
Once you’ve made two even discs, combine the melted butter, brown sugar and cinnamon in a cup and spread evenly over one disc. Place the other disc on top and cut scones into triangles or squares and place on your baking sheet. I put mine all on a standard baking sheet but they spread out a lot so maybe place them on to two. My butter was not chilled enough and therefore they got pretty flat. Still tasted great.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, until a bit browned or bottom edges lift from pan.
Remove from the oven and let cool.
Can serve warm with coffee or tea! Could also top with whipped cream, cream cheese or jam.
