My Banana Blueberry Oatmeal 'Scone-Cake'...

I used to always wonder...what exactly are scones?? As per the following sites, a scone is:
"a light plain doughy cake made from flour with very little fat, cooked in an oven or (esp originally) on a griddle, usually split open and buttered" -
"a small, light, biscuit like quick bread made of oatmeal, wheat flour, barley meal, or the like." -
"a small, thick biscuit, usually rich with cream and eggs, that is cut into diamond or stick-like shapes and baked in an oven or cooked on a griddle. The flour used is usually wheat, barley or oatmeal, with baking powder acting as the leavening agent. Scones are believed to have originated in Scotland as a griddle-baked flat bread." -
Well, what I made had a biscuit like crust on the top with a soft, light cake like interior on the bottom! So I guess I actually ended up making a hybrid between a scone and a cup cake - hence, I am going to call my product a scone-cake :D The basic recipe is from one of my favourite blogs: Litebite. I came across the recipe  for oatmeal and banana scone and had to try it for breakfast this weekend. I also added few other goodies that I felt like and went ahead to bake them in ramekins which ended up as my so called 'scone-cakes'. Irrespective of what it really is, we actually enjoyed having it. One scone-cake with a mug of hot chocolate drink and you are ready to go! Very filling, easy, nutritious and wholesome breakfast.  Do give it a try ...

Banana Blueberry Oatmeal Scone-Cake: Recipe
(Source: Lite bite)

     Ingredients (makes 4 scone-cakes):
    • Instant Oats - 3/4 cup
    • Wholewheat flour - 1/4 cup
    • Brown sugar -1/2 cup
    • Flax seed powdered - 1 tbsp
    • 1/2 tsp baking powder
    • 1/4 tsp baking soda
    • Salt - a pinch 
    • 2 medium size mashed Bananas
    • Yogurt - 1/2 cup
    • Vegetable oil -1 tbsp
    • Blueberry - 3/4 cup
    • Raisins - to taste (I added a handful)

    1. Preheat the oven to 200 deg C while you prepare the cake mix.
    2. To prepare the cake mix, firstly, mix all the dry ingredients - oats, flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, flax seed and salt; with a wire whisk. Remove any lumps.
    3. Then, blend the wet ingredients - mashed banana, yogurt and vegetable oil.
    4. Add this wet mixture to the dry mixture and blend well till a good batter is formed.
    5. To this add the blueberries and raisins and mix gently.
    6. Butter 4 medium size ramekins and pour the batter into each ramekin. Take care not to fill more than half of each ramekin as the mixture will rise during baking.
    7. Bake for about 15 to 30 min till the crust is golden brown. Start checking after 15 mins. Insert a toothpick at the centre; if it comes out clean your scone-cakes are ready to serve.
