On this page I’m sharing the recipe for Skillet Scones with apple and blackberries. Baking scones in a skillet in the oven is easy to do and it looks so pretty. On this page I’m telling you how I made these skillet scones, including my secret for getting the perfect round shapes and tips for the fruit filling.
Skillet Scones are the Britisch scones that you might know, but instead of being baked on an oven tray, they’re baked in a cast iron skillet. You can either bake Skillet Scones in the oven or on the stove. Sometimes Skillet Scones are called Griddle Scones when they’re baked on a griddle instead of a skillet.
You can choose to make one big pie shaped scone, and cut it in pie slices. This way you get triangle shaped scones. I kept the original round scone shape, as I like it better when they’re thick and airy instead of thin and more compressed.
How to shape scones
Wondering how I got the perfect round shape for my scones, and how they’re all the same size? I’m sharing my trick with you. After making the batter, I used an ice cream scoop to scoop even amounts of batter in the skillet.
You can make the scone dough from scratch with the recipe on this page or if you want to take it easy you can use the Scones Mix from Coffeelicious Bakery. You’ll only have to add eggs, butter and buttermilk.
