Caesar's Banana Scones 6.20 Super Cool Party People


“Caesar, why am I still finding bananas in the fridge?” “Oh, you wanted me to take all the bananas out of the fridge?” “When I said, "remove the bananas," I was referring to all the bananas. Otherwise, I would have said "a banana" or "some of the bananas." “Hm” “What?” “It's just that while I was running the place, that was one of my innovations, cold bananas. People really love them.” “I highly doubt that. And get rid of those scones.”


Ingredients:

For the scones:

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour

  • ½ cup brown sugar

  • 1 tbsp baking powder

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • ½ tsp nutmeg

  • ¼ tsp ground cloves

  • ½ tsp salt

  • ½ cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed

  • ⅓ cup milk

  • 1 cup ripe bananas, mashed

  • 1 egg

  • ½ tsp vanilla

  • ¼ cup walnuts, chopped

For the glaze:

  • ½ cup powdered sugar

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • ½ tsp nutmeg

  • ¼ tsp ground cloves

  • ½ tsp vanilla

  • 3 tbsp heavy cream

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients: both flours, brown sugar, baking powder, spices, and salt.

  3. Cut in the cold butter and mix until the texture resembles breadcrumbs.

  4. Add the milk, banana, egg, and vanilla and mix until just-combined. Be careful not to overmix!

  5. On a lightly floured surface, add the dough and gently knead for about 30 seconds or until a smooth ball is formed. If the dough is too dry, add a tablespoon or two of milk.

  6. Cut the ball of dough into 8 even triangle shapes and transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat.

  7. Press the walnuts into the unbaked scones.

  8. Bake at 375 F for 15-20 minutes or until browned.

  9. While the scones are making, prepare the glaze by mixing the ingredients together until well-combined.

  10. Once the scones are done baking, lightly drizzle them with the glaze.

I got a little creative with this dish by combining two of Caesar’s dishes he sells while Luke is away with April: cold bananas and scones! I don’t know why Luke is so butthurt about Caesar’s inventions because they seem pretty popular, and not to toot my own horn, but these scones are delicious! Your home will definitely be smelling like fall when you bake these!


Happy cooking from the Hollow!
