These berry scones are loaded with whole juicy blackberries which provide the perfect amount of sweetness. They’re baked in a toaster oven and when the scones bake, the berries inside become soft and deliver a fresh burst of flavor with each bite.

  1. You know how small a Cornish hen is, right? I once roasted two of them in a toaster oven for Christmas dinner when my oven was not working. They barely fit in my tiny, old toaster oven. Turned out great! I do love my much newer, larger one, though! And I love scones. Thanks for this recipe 🙂

    1. You’re welcome Elaine. Wow, a Cornish Hen? I never would have thought of that. Toaster ovens are really just “mini” ovens so why not, right? I love my toaster oven too and especially enjoy using it in the summer when I don’t have to heat up my kitchen with my regular oven.

  2. I LOVE scones! Im the only one in my family who will eat them. So, Im super excited to see a recipe that allows me to make a smaller batch and cook in the toaster oven!

    1. I love smaller batch recipes too, Jessica. Somehow, baked goods always taste better fresh out of the oven.

  3. I just splurged on a new Breville Toaster Oven (the smaller size one) and I LOVE it. My other one was over 20 years old and I had gotten some gift money and I’m so glad I got a new one! The newer ones can do so much and really are mini ovens and I love that I don’t have to heat up the whole kitchen for small batch baking and heating. We love scones so I’ll be adding this to my to try list!
