  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, salt, and currants. Make a well in the center. In a small bowl, beat egg until frothy, and stir in melted butter and milk. Pour into the well, and mix to create a soft dough. Pat dough into two 1/2 inch thick circles. Place on the prepared baking sheet. Score 8 wedges into each circle of dough.
  3. Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until risen and browned. Split wedges, and serve warm.

My family loved these! I added dried cranberries instead of currants and a tablespoon of orange zest. I also put an orange glaze on top. They were terrific!

This has got to be the easiest scone ever to make!! No need to roll out the dough and fiddle with the cutters and all. It's absolutely delicious, from the 2nd try on, you can almost make it with...

ACK! Dry, heavy, tasteless. Try less oats, more flour? I made a batch, choked down one for breakfast, and threw out the rest!

Subbed maple syrup for some of the milk and they turned out okay. A bit dry, though - not sure what they were lacking. Then again, perhaps I was too drunk to appreciate them fully.

The scones have wonderful texure and a nice blend of oat flavor. My family really enjoy them as breakfast. Will definitely make them again!!
