Roll Oat Mulberry Drop Biscuit


Fresh mulberry is nearly impossible to be seen here in Malaysia but I'm lucky enough to bump into some dried ones some time ago. The price is quite affordable though and thought of using them into my drop biscuit. This scone like drop biscuit is another popular English tea snack in US. It's actually something quite similar to scone except that the dough is dropped by a spoon rather than shaping them by cutter.

And here's what I did.
Ingredients :
(A)
3 cups all purpose flour
1 cup  roll oat
100gm  brown sugar
1 tbsp  baking powder
1 tspn  baking soda
1 tspn  salt
1 cup  dried mulberries

(B)
125gm cold butter, diced

(C)
1 cup  sour cream
3/4 cup  full cream milk (or any milk)
1 tspn  vanilla extract

Method :
(1) combine ingredients (A) into a big mixing bowl and mix well.
(2) add in butter and rub with fingers till well combined.
(3) next, stir in ingredients (C) and mix to form a soft dough, do not over mix the dough.
(4) then scoop with an ice cream gadget to baking tray.
(5) finally, bake at preheated oven 175'C for about 15 mins.

Roll oat is another favourite ingredients of mine. Love using them in many of my baking and this is just a nice one for it. Enjoy everyone & have a fabulous weekend.

Oh Kristy, I haven't had mulberries since I was a kid! My friends and I would walk up to the store and pick mulberries and eat them along the way! We would also pick wild black raspberries near my house! I have never seen dried mulberries before, if I did I know they would be too expensive! We don't see them here in Florida either.

Have a wonderful weekend!

I also have not seen mulberries since I was very small. We used yo have silk worms all over the trees in our yard. Not for anything other than a bit of fun. Thanks for the memories. Diane

You know, I've never tried mulberries. Must keep an eye out for them. Love drop cookies. I make mine with cranberries...or raisins...or chocolate chips! yum!

Mulberries in bakes sounds interesting, and your drop scones looks yummy. I have three small mulberry plants in pots, and I picked the fruits and freeze them. Been collecting them and now have about 2 cups of frozen mulberries!
Have not seen dried ones sold here before, must keep a look-out for them!
Thank you for baking-along with us!

The idea of using mulberry is a great idea! It is indeed hard to find such fruits in the tropics and its great you were able to use them in your scones.

Zoe said...

I don't think mulberry can be commonly found in Australia too. Your scones are indeed "very English" using this exotic and rare ingredient. I have never try and taste mulberry before and wish to bake with this berry one day :D

I have a real soft spot for mulberries. Before we moved to the house we live in now (a little over 3 years ago), we had a ton of mulberry bushes lining our back yard. We could go out and pick mulberries and use them for baking for months. I loved it when my hands were stained purple from picking too many. I've never seen dried ones before, but I know I'd love these biscuits. =)
