Banana Scones

Cooking in a solar oven is so easy and fun. My daughter came over and we whipped up some banana scones for lunch. They baked up beautifully. Such a wonderful snack to share together, warm, moist, yummy banana scones with a cardamom kick. These were almost the texture of a short bread, I think you will like them.  Source: Fugi Mama

Banana Scones

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus extra for dusting
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/2 cup (1 stick) cold butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
2 bananas, peeled and chopped into small pieces
1/4 cup whole milk
1 large egg, beaten, for egg wash
2 tablespoons granulated sugar for sprinkling

Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cardamom in a large mixing bowl until completely incorporated. Add the butter, and toss to coat each piece in flour. Using a pastry cutter, cut in the butter until well mixed. Add the banana pieces and toss to distribute evenly.

Add two tablespoons milk, folding the ingredients together as you go. Keep adding milk one tablespoon at a time until you have a soft dough, but do not over mix. You should still see lumps of butter in the dough.

Place dough to the prepared pizza pan. Dust the top of the dough lightly with flour, then use your hands to gently pat it into a round disk, and score it into 8 wedges. Brush the tops of the scones liberally with the egg wash, then sprinkle with the granulated sugar.

Place in a preheated solar oven and bake for 40 – 45 minutes until done.
