Weekday breakfast time at our house is not our finest hour. I’m out the door for a run as soon as the sun is up while Allen makes coffee and handles the dog wake-up calls. We usually shuffle through our individual get-ready routines, catching breakfast on our own. Allen settles for toast and jam many mornings, while I lean toward some kind of protein bar. Exciting, huh?
After we tried and loved Immaculate Baking Co.’s Gingerbread Spice Cookies, we checked out their Supremes Chocolate Chunk Cookies, which were also winners in our book. Would a breakfast upgrade be possible with Immaculate Baking Co.? We put their Blueberry Scones to the test. This was a giant leap of faith for me, because I generally shy away from any kind of ready-to-bake bread in a refrigerated tube. I made the leap partially because of Immaculate’s promise not to use any of the following ingredients:
- Bleached flour
- Trans fats
- Hydrogenated oil
- Aluminum baking powder
- Artificial preservatives
- Artificial flavors
- High fructose corn syrup
- Genetically modified organisms
My other motivations? The 15-minute oven-to-table convenience and a strong desire to get out of our ho-hum breakfast routine!
The scones baked up perfectly golden brown in 15 minutes, and the number of plump blueberries in each one was amazing. Dappled sunlight streaming across the kitchen island and on our beautiful scones set up a perfect start to the autumn morning.
With butter melting on the flaky layers and a little all-natural honey for dipping, we were ready for the crucial taste test. The verdict was unanimous – success! The pastry was tender and the blueberries were tasty. We liked the wholesome ingredients: unbleached flour, pure cane sugar, and sea salt. These blueberry scones banished at least one boring breakfast at our house!
Our post about Immaculate’s Gingerbread Spice Cookies shared the company’s commitments to worthy causes, particularly folk art. Our package of scones profiled North Carolina artist Clyde Jones, who crafts “critters” from scrap wood, so we also had some culture with our morning cuisine. Immaculate Baking Co.’s quality products and corporate conscience make them a go-to favorite.
