Toaster Oven Scones

This small batch scone recipe is perfect to use with a toaster oven. Filled with berries, these scones are buttery and perfect for breakfast!

one scone filled with berries on a clear plate next to a handful of raspberries.

These berry scones are loaded with juicy berries which provide the perfect amount of sweetness. The scones are 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.

No toaster oven? No problem, these scones can be made in a normal oven too.

How To Make Scones

  2. Add in 1/2 stick of cold butter cut into cubes and process if you're using a food processor. If mixing by hand, use a pastry blender. The mixture should resemble wet sand.
  3. Whisk together one egg and 1/4 cup of cream.
  4. Transfer the dry ingredients with butter to a large bowl and pour in the egg and the cream and mix it well.
  5. Add 1/2 cup of blackberries or raspberries to the bowl and very gently mix them.  Be very careful not to over mix.
  6. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and gently knead into a ball.
  7. Flatten the dough with your hands and slice into fourths.
  8. In a small bowl, make the streusel topping.
  9. Brush the tops of the scones with heavy cream and spoon the streusel topping over each one.
  10. Place the scones in a preheated toaster oven and bake for 12-15 minutes.

  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!
