  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F and position a rack in the center.

  2. In a medium skillet, toast the oats over moderately high heat, stirring constantly, for about 5 minutes, until golden and fragrant. Transfer to a plate to cool completely.

  3. In a large bowl, combine the flour with the granulated sugar, baking powder and salt. Using 2 knives or a pastry blender, cut in the butter until the pieces are the size of small peas.

  4. Stir in the rolled oats and candied orange peel. Make a well in the center and pour in the buttermilk. Stir with a wooden spoon just until the dough is evenly moistened.

  5. Transfer the dough to a floured surface and pat it into an 8-inch round about ½-inch thick. Pinch together any cracks around the edges.

  6. Brush the dough with the heavy cream and sprinkle it with the demerara sugar. Cut the round into 8 wedges and transfer them to a baking sheet.

  7. Bake the candied orange-oat scones for about 25 minutes, or until golden on top and bottom.

  8. Transfer the scones to a wire rack to cool slightly.

  9. Serve with softened butter and marmalade, and enjoy!
