  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cardamom seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup non-fat yogurt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated lemon peel
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) cold unsalted butter, cut up
  • 3/4 cup (4 1/2 ounces) finely cut moist prunes


  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Put flour, baking powder, baking soda, cardamom, and salt into a large bowl; mix well.
  2. In another bowl, beat yogurt, egg, sugar, and lemon peel until well blended.
  3. Add butter to the flour mixture and cut in with a pastry blender or rub in with your fingers, until the mixture looks like fine granules. Add prunes and toss to distribute evenly.
  4. Add yogurt mixture and stir with a spoon until a sticky dough forms. Drop 1/3 cupfuls of dough 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, until golden brown. Cool, loosely covered with a dishtowel, on a wire rack.
  5. 9 scones.
