You'll never buy a store bought scone again!
- step-by-step directions
Blueberry Lemon Poppy Seed Scones:
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 stick unsalted butter (cold, cubed)
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
- 2 tablespoons poppy seeds
- 1 whole lemon (zested)
- 1 large egg (beaten)
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 cup fresh blueberries
- clotted cream (to serve)
- lemon curd (to serve)
- 1 cup confectioner's sugar
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- Preheat the oven to 375ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- For the Scones: In a large bowl add the flour and butter. Using a pastry cutter or two forks, cut butter into flour until pea-sized lumps form.
- Add sugar, baking powder, salt, poppy seeds, lemon zest and toss using forks to combine.
- In a small bowl, whisk together egg and milk and add to the flour mixture, stirring gently with a fork until just combined. Fold in the blueberries. Dough should be crumbly but still come together. On a floured surface, with floured hands, press the dough into a rough circle, about 3/4-inches thick. Cut into 8 wedges and transfer to a baking sheet.
- Place in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, until scones are golden brown. Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly.
- For the Lemon Glaze: In a small bowl, whisk together confectioner's sugar and lemon juice. Using a spoon, drizzle glaze over cooled scones.
- Serve with clotted cream and lemon curd.
- Tip: Make a large batch of these scones and freeze before baking for a freshly baked breakfast every day of the week!
