 Ingredients List

  • For the Scones
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons cold butter , cut into 1/4-inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup milk (may need to add more)
  • 1 egg yolk , lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1- cup mashed banana
  • For the Glaze
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons water


Preheat oven to 400.
Grease a large, heavy baking sheet with cooking spray and set it aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt; mix until well combined.
Rub the butter into the dry ingredients with your fingers, or with a pastry cutter; rub until the mixture resembles fine crumbs.
Make a well in the center and pour in milk, egg yolk, and vanilla.
Add mashed banana.
Using a wooden spoon, combine all the ingredients just until the dough comes together.
Transfer the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead the dough five times.
Flatten ball into a disk; cut dough-ball into 8 wedges or rounds.
Put all the wedges on the baking sheet, leaving about 1/4-inch space between them.
Bake the scones for 15 to 18 minutes, or until golden brown.
Let cool for a few minutes and then transfer the scones to a wire rack.

In the meantime, make the glaze.
In a small mixing bowl whisk together powdered sugar, vanilla and 2 tablespoons water; whisk until smooth and combined. If the glaze is too thick, add 1 more tablespoon water and whisk until smooth.
While still warm, brush each scone with the glaze.
