How to make lemon blueberry scones

Scones are as easy as it gets when it comes to a baked good.

  1. Whisk together the flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder
  2. Cut butter into the dry mixture using a fork
  3. Add wet ingredients and mix with a rubber spatula 
  4. Fold in blueberries

Tip: try not to overmix the dough. the reason to cut in cold butter is to have some clumps of butter in the dough. This creates flakes in the scones.

Place dough on a floured surface and cut into slices using a dough scraper. A knife will work too for this step. Transfer to a lined baking sheet and sprinkle with extra cane sugar.

Bake for 20 minutes at 400 degrees. The tops should be a light golden brown.

Fresh or frozen blueberries?

Both work! If you use frozen, no need to thaw, just mix in the dough frozen. Frozen berries are less likely to burst in baking so there’s that to consider as well (although I’m not mad when they do!) You can even use wild blueberries which are smaller in size.

How to make a lemon glaze

These scones taste great on their own (I like the crunch of the cane sugar on top). If you want to get fancy and take these lemon blueberry scones to the next level, make a lemon glaze!

  1. Mix 1 cup confectioner sugar, 1/4 cup lemon juice, and 1 Tablespoon of melted vegan butter.
  2. Whisk until it’s a nice icing consistency. Drizzle over scones and let dry.

    • They still need sugar in the recipe. You can use regular sugar or even try a liquid sugar such as maple syrup or agave. I have not tested with any of these options though!

    Made these today! I opted for the sugar top and am over the moon with the results! Thank you for such a simple, delicious recipe. PS – I mixed mine gluten free and it translated perfectly.

    • Having no other flour than “baking” flour in the house, i opted for something different. I used 1C Amaranth flour and 1C Almond Meal (flour). Oh and yea, I am sed fresh blackberries bateas too! During this quarantining, I’m using what I do have!
      The consistency is a bit “softer”, but the flavor is marvelous.
      I will reheat tomorrow morning and top with fresh lemon glaze then! Yum!

  2. Tried the1:1 almond to reg flour but had to add 1/4 cup extra regular flour because the dough was too wet. Baked up nicely, just a little more dense than a full flour scone. Lemon flavour comes out so nicely! Also cut down to 1TB of sugar and subbed maple for the agave. Will make again! Oh and didn’t have blueberries so used raspberries! This recipe is very adaptable! Delicious!

    These are the tastiest scones I’ve ever made. I substituted brown sugar for the granulated sugar, used agave syrup and instead of 2 cups of all purpose flour, I used 1 cup of almond flour and 1 1/4 cups all purpose (probably should have used 1 1/2 cups of APF though).

    I did not glaze them and they were still very sweet so next time I will cut back on either the brown/granulated sugar or the agave. Definitely a keeper recipe!
