Scones are a great alternative to muffins or biscuits. They originate from Scotland but are very popular across the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, the US and Canada. These blueberry and lemon scones are easy to make, delicious, and perfect for a nice relaxing breakfast or brunch!

Serves 18
Time required 30 minutes
Difficulty level 3
Cost of ingredients 8 USD

  • 2 cups (500ml) all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup (50ml) sugar
  • 1 tablespoon (15ml) baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon (2ml) baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon (2ml) salt
  • ½ cup (125ml) butter, cold and cut into pieces
  • ½ cup (125ml) blueberries
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup (125ml) milk
  • 1 teaspoon (10ml) lemon juice


  • 1 tablespoon (15ml) milk
  • ½ teaspoon (2ml) lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon (2ml) lemon zest
  • 2 teaspoons (10ml) sugar

In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt with a whisk so it’s evenly distributed. Cut in the butter using a fork to make coarse crumbs. Add the blueberries and gently stir them in to spread evenly throughout.

Beat the egg and milk in another bowl. Stir into the dry ingredients, making a soft dough. Turn dough out onto a floured board and knead gently about four times. Using a rolling pin, roll out into a circular shape (patting out the dough works well to help get the round shape) about ¾  inch (2cm) thick. Using a knife, cut the dough across the middle from top to bottom, then again from left to right, like a pizza, to make triangle shapes. There should be enough to make 18 scones. Place on a baking sheet.

In a small bowl mix the milk, lemon juice and zest together. Brush on top of the scones and sprinkle the tops with the sugar.

Preheat oven to 400F (200C) and place scones inside to cook for 15 -20 minute, or until golden brown on top.

    For mad scientists who keep brains in jars, here’s a tip: why not add a slice of lemon to each jar, for freshness?
