With all the warm spices and sweetness of traditional carrot cake, these scones make for a perfect breakfast treat or afternoon tea indulgence. The slight crunch from the carrot and the creaminess from the cream cheese icing take these scones to a whole new level.

To make these carrot cake scones, you’ll need the following ingredients:

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup grated carrot
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.
  3. Add the cold butter to the dry ingredients and use a pastry cutter or your fingers to cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Stir in the grated carrot, raisins, and chopped walnuts.
  5. In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk and vanilla extract.
  6. Pour the buttermilk mixture into the dry ingredients and gently stir until just combined. Do not overmix.
  7. Transfer the dough onto a floured surface and gently knead it a few times until it comes together.
  8. Pat the dough into a 1-inch thick circle and cut it into 12 equal wedges.
  9. Place the scones onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving some space between each.
  10. Bake for about 12-15 minutes, or until the scones are golden brown.
  11. Remove from the oven and let the scones cool on a wire rack.
  12. In the meantime, prepare the cream cheese icing by mixing 1/2 cup of softened cream cheese, 1/4 cup of powdered sugar, and a splash of vanilla extract until smooth and creamy.
  13. Drizzle the cream cheese icing over the cooled scones and serve.
