Can I let you in on a little secret? I’m not really sure how I feel about buckwheat. (Probably not the best way to sell you on these scones, but I have to keep it real, right?) This was the first time I baked with it, and actually, the first time I’ve knowingly had it (other than in soba noodles, which I do enjoy). Buckwheat is so healthy, I wanted to like it, really I did. But it’s just so…I don’t know…grassy, maybe?
Truth be told, cardboard-y is probably a better word. (more…)
