The Good News Spelt, which is loaded with manganese and riboflavin, gives these wheat-free scones a wheaty taste. McKenna developed the recipe because of a single determined customer who came to BabyCakes NYC every day asking, “Do you have scones yet?”
- 2 cups spelt flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 cup canola oil
- 1/3 cup agave nectar
- 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup hot water
- 1 cup fresh raspberries
Preheat the oven to 375°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a bowl, whisk the spelt with the baking powder and salt. Stir in the oil, agave nectar and vanilla. Stir in the hot water, then the raspberries.
Scoop 12 mounds of batter 1/3 cup each onto the prepared baking sheet and lightly brush the tops with oil. Bake the scones for 20 minutes, or until golden. Let the baking sheet cool completely on top of a rack.
