German Scones with Cinnamon Honey Butter

I have been on the hunt for a scone recipe. I really want one that is similar to what you find at a restaurant here called Chuck-A-Rama. I found this version on Cafe Zupas blog, which also has restaurants here. I have been there before and it was fabulous.

These scones turned out wonderful. They aren’t exactly like the ones at Chuck-A-Rama. For those of you that know the fast food restaurant called Sconecutter, these are very similar in texture to their scones. I also love the scones at Sconecutter. My favorite is with cinnamon honey butter. So with the cinnamon honey butter recipe that was included with the scone recipe, you have a very good copy cat recipe of that version from Sconecutter.

This dough was easy too make. I loved that the dough went into the fridge until you were ready to use it. I made this in the morning and at dinner time I just rolled out the dough and fried them up. It would be great to make the night before and then it would be ready for you in the morning. It would make a fabulous breakfast. This dough was very easy to handle too.

I must tell you it made a ton. I think it was around 24 scones. Definitely a keeper. It got thumbs up all round with my family.

  • Quick question about the Cinnamon Honey Butter~ do you recommend using salted or unsalted butter…?

  • I have made these so many times my family loves them. We recently switched diets and we no longer eat eggs and butter. But I have been craving scones and Navajo Tacos so I made this with a few adjustments and it still tasted wonderful. I use a little applesauce to replace the butter and then egg replacer to replace the egg. We also used half wheat flour.

  • Good stuff! I travelled to England this summer and had my first ever afternoon tea with scones , and it was absolutely delicious I figured I’d try make my own last week. I might have broken a few rules though – I found a internet site of random scone recipes and made 6 different types! My friends were so happy when I brought them round for tea and scones. Lots of fun!

  • I made these today! My kids and I just got done sampling them, actually and I have to say..what a tasty tasty treat! I can’t wait to try out more of your recipes!

  • Patti, on those scones I didn’t punch the dough down. I just left it as is and just rolled it out.

  • Do you punch the dough down after it has risen before you refrigerate it or just pop it in while it’s puffy? My adult daughter was just craving scones the other day…

  • We tried these scones last night and they were a huge hit with my family, my 3 year old who only wants hot dogs and mac n' cheese gobbled these down and my husband ate FOUR! My 8 yr old & 19 month old aren't such picky eaters but they loved them too. Thanks so much for the great recipes
