Fig scones made with fresh figs, wholemeal flour and oats are a delightful breakfast or brunch treat.
Dry figs can be used if you don't have fresh figs. Mix 175g dried figs with 4 tablespoons of hot water and allow to plump up while you prepare the scone mixture.
Delicious!!! The texture is perfect! I made this the first time with fresh figs and regular whole wheat flour and it was so good that I was craving it after fig season was over. I always can my extra figs in syrup and just made this with the canned figs... It was still delicious but next time I'll remember to cut or omit the sugar since my canned figs were already sweet. Thanks for the great recipe!!! - 22 Aug 2015 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
A wonderful way to start your morning with a cup of tea. I didn’t have whole wheat pastry flour so I did half whole wheat flour and half cake flour. It worked out great. - 15 Jul 2015 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I omitted the sugar. I used 1/2 cup chopped figs, since 1 fig just wouldn't do! My scones baked 10 minutes, then I scored them, then baked an extra 15 minutes. Perfect for summer fig season! - 12 Jul 2015 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
