Serves 8

1 16.5-ounce package Red Velvet cake mix
2 tablespoon buttermilk, plus more for brushing
1 egg, beaten
Flour, for dusting
Sugar, for sprinkling


Preheat oven to 400°F.

In a medium bowl, mix together cake mix, buttermilk and egg. The mixture should be pretty dry but come together when pressed with your hands. If it’s too dry, add a little more buttermilk.

Dump the mixture out onto a sheet of parchment, dust with flour and form it into a ball. Flatten to ball into a 10-inch circle. Cut the circle into 8 triangular pieces. Place the scones onto a parchment-lined sheet tray.

Brush the top of each scone with some buttermilk and sprinkle with sugar.

Bake for 15 minutes.

This recipe calls for Red Velvet cake mix but you can use whatever kind of cake mix you prefer.
