Blueberry scones

blueberry scones recipe 2

Over the course of years I had my fair share of scones. Some I’ve eaten in England and Scotland, some from the local bakeries and coffee shops and some made at home by me. Needless to say, I haven’t had two scones that were the same.

I have had dry scones, buttery scones, flaky scones, cake scones. Sweet or savory, round or cut into wedges. I had at least one.

But just like chocolate, I can not have enough scones. They are my favorite tea treat or at brunch time with a hot cup of coffee.

These blueberry scones have been made a few times and recently decided it was time to share the recipe with you. Because I love you and if you try these scones, you’ll love them as much as I do too. 

blueberry scone recipe 3 My blueberry scones have a cake like texture inside with a golden floured cracked top. Yes, the cracked top differentiate them from cake wedges.

Unlike other scone recipes I’ve tried before, today’s recipe calls for melted butter. And buttermilk. And two types of flour. One egg is also thrown in.

    Oh, the look yummy! Is wheat pastry flour just whole wheat flour or is it a specialty flour? I’ve never heard of it before.

      Hi Vicky,
      the whole wheat pastry flour is a very finely ground whole wheat.If you don’t have the pastry type, you can use the regular whole wheat

    I am usually not a fan of scones, perhaps because they seemed a bit dry to me. However, your scones look really good. Will definitely give them a try! Thanks Roxana!
