A delicious recipe from Susan Falcone (Ann Arbor, Michigan artist, naturalist, and friend) based on a traditional Scottish oven scone recipe. Susan serves these at her studio’s holiday open house.

Mix in a bowl:

  • 2 cups flour (I use about 1/3 whole wheat and 2/3 unbleached)
  • 2-1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp sugar

Mix together & add to dry ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 2/3c buttermilk or sour milk (or plain yogurt)

Stir only enough to mix.

Can add cinnamon, raisins, nuts, dried cherries, whatever.

Turn dough onto floured surface and pat out to a circle about 1/2" thick, prick with a fork and cut in wedges. Bake on a baking sheet at 425-450 for 10-15 minutes. (I often bake this on an oven stone.) Yield 8-12 (I usually make 8 generous portions.)


In my book, I have included the names of several dozen cookbooks which feature recipes that are compatible with (or that can be modified to fit) the ultra-healthy diet I follow, including some resources which are free.

I am also collecting recipes to include in a future edition of my book as well as to be featured on "Menus and recipes".   I have asked readers to send me any recipes that they have found to be great-tasting and easy to prepare, and that emphasize the nutritional guidelines which are outlined in my book.  I will also consider taking people's favorite "normal" recipes and posting versions which are modified for maximal cancer prevention.

If you have a recipe you wish to submit for possible inclusion in either my book or on this web page, please send it to me.  If the recipe is from a cookbook or other printed source, please include the name, author, and publisher of the source so that I can ask for permission to reprint the recipe.  If it is a recipe you created, or a family favorite, please indicate that, also.
