This blueberry scone recipe is special. Overflowing with ripe and juicy summer British blueberries and covered with a zesty lemon glaze with poppy seeds for some extra crunch, you won't get much better than this when it comes to flavour. This is the perfect blueberry scone for that sweet and savoury craving. Bake until the outside is golden and you know you’ll have a soft and middle with a crumbly, slightly crunchy outer crust, YUM.

Method

  1. Preheat your oven to 190ºc/ 170ºc fan/ gas mark 5, Line a baking sheet with some baking parchment.

  2. Mix together the flour and salt in a large bowl. Rub in the butter until you have a breadcrumb consistency.

    • 75g Self Raising Flour
    • ¼ tsp Salt
    • 75g Butter (Unsalted)
  3. Stir in the sugar and carefully fold in the blueberries by hand so they aren't squashed.

    • 90g Blueberries
  4. In a separate bowl, beat the egg and stir in 3 tbsp of the buttermilk.

  5. Add this to the flour mixture and gently mix in.

  6. Add the final 1 tbsp of buttermilk and bring the mixture togther with your hands taking care not to squash the fruit. Add a little more flour if the mixture is too sticky.

  7. Turn out onto a floured surface and form a flat round. Roll or press out into a 20cm/8in circle.

  8. Transfer this to the baking sheet and mark into 8 segments with a knife.

  9. Bake for 25 minutes but check for doneness after 20 minutes.
