Strawberry Rhubarb

A Strawberry Rhubarb Biscuit or Scone

The innkeeper at Yamhill Vineyards Bed and Breakfast shared her Lemon Blueberry Biscuits awhile back.Today she mixes it up a bit using Oregon strawberries and rhubarb that are in season.

We innkeepers love to bake. Most every breakfast includes a delectable treat made with local and fresh fruits and vegetables. Whether that dish is an main course or a side, something sweet is always included, using what’s seasonally available.

Strawberry Rhubarb Biscuit or Scone
Yield: 12-18

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

2 Cups all-purpose flour
½ Cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
1 Cup vanilla yogurt
1 Large egg at room temperature
¼ Cup melted butter
½ Cup chopped strawberries
¾ Cup diced rhubarb

In a large bowl whisk the first 5 ingredients. Add egg, yogurt and melted butter. Stir until moistened. Fold in strawberries and rhubarb.
If you’re making biscuits you’ll drop about 1/3 cupful onto a greased baking sheet. For scones little bigger scoop. She also likes to line the baking sheet with parchment paper. Bake 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Shorter time for strawberry rhubarb biscuits, a little longer for the bigger scone.

½ Cup confectioners’ sugar
¼ teaspoon vanilla
Enough milk or water to make the glaze drip off the spoon.
Mix glaze ingredients until smooth. Drizzle over warm biscuit/scone.

Wake to freshly brewed coffee and a creative, healthy, delicious breakfast at Yamhill Vineyards Bed and Breakfast. I’ll let you in on a little secret too: The signature dish for Yamhill Vineyards Bed & Breakfast is not a dish but “Wine before its time”. A variety of grape juice from the vineyard served with every breakfast.

Yamhill Vineyards Bed & Breakfast is a little known gem located in the heart of the Willamette Valley wine country. The Inn is surrounded by vineyards, spectacular views and has two large guest rooms, each with private baths offering a relaxed country retreat.
