The classic scone gets a beta carotene boost from grated carrot.
Scones are traditionally made with butter, sugar, eggs and cream. Here, the eggs are omitted and buttermilk stands in for cream to cut back on the saturated fat content.
Used different ingredients. I used soy milk instead of the buttermilk. They were delicious. Next time, I might add even more ginger! - 30 Jan 2009
