Easy Versatile Kernza® Scones

We’ve been testing a lot of Kernza® blends in the test kitchen lately: Kernza and hard red wheat, soft white wheat, white sonora flour, all purpose flour, the list goes on. When testing many slightly different samples for comparison, it helps to use a simple base recipe with few ingredients and fewer steps in order to eliminate unwanted variables. Recently, we came across this scone recipe from food52.com that checked each of those boxes. By the end of testing, we decided the scones were so delicious, that we had to share the recipe with you. So here it is (along with a few additional notes and suggestions).

This recipe is not only simple; it’s versatile. Each of our blends mentioned above yielded great results. You can essentially blend equal parts Kernza flour with any flour you have on hand, and you will not be disappointed. Our favorite blend was Kernza with whole wheat flour (we used Bob’s Red Mill’s whole wheat), with 100% Kernza coming in a close second. However, you really cannot go wrong.

The recipe calls for “heavy cream”. Would that be “whipping cream”?
