Blueberry Scone Recipe

Blueberry Scone Recipe

If there is one thing I love, it is the taste of something sweet for breakfast. Having grandparents who originated from Europe, I was introduced to quite a few delicious ethnic foods. One such treat when we visited my grandmother were scones. It actually wasn’t until the past few years, however, that I had them again and learned to love them all over again! Since my husband likes them as well, I was determined to learn how to make them. What surprised me, however, was that it was very difficult to find a good scone recipe. It actually did take a a while before I found one, and it consisted of taking four to five recipes and taking the best aspects of all of them to create the perfect scone recipe.

With fruit starting to come into season and be relatively cheap again, I knew exactly what I was going to make – blueberry scones. After getting my blueberries together, I took my hand written recipe, using homemade flour from my grain mill, and decided to test it out. What I created may very well be the most delicious, easy to make scone recipe I had seen yet. Everything balances out perfectly, making a scone that is sweet and perfect with coffee, tea, or even milk!

For those who had never had scones before, don’t worry, they are very good! Imagines a slightly sweet biscuit with fruit and other delicious additions. Unlike biscuits, however, they are meant to go with coffee or tea, making them a perfect afternoon snack. Just don’t expect for these scones to be around long. If your house is anything like mine, these scones were gone in less than 48 hours!

Blueberry Scone Recipe
This scone recipe is the right mixture of sweet and has a very nice flavor with the fresh blueberries. Perfect for breakfast or an afternoon snack with tea or coffee.
Cuisine: English
Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 8
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • ½ Cups of Milk
  • ¼ Cup of Pure Cane Sugar
  • 2 Tsp Dried Lemon Peel
  • 1 Tbsp of Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Cups Milled White Wheat Flour or All Purpose Flour
  • ½ Tsp of Salt
  • 3 Tbsp Butter (cubed)
  • 1½ Cups of Fresh Blueberries
  • 1 Egg White
  • 2 TBSP Sugar
  • 2 TBSP Sugar in the Raw (or other coarsely granulated sugar)
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Combine all the dry ingredients and make sure they are mixed thoroughly.
  3. Combine your flour mixture with the vanilla, milk, and butter. Mix in a stand mixer. The mix will be thick and sticky.
  4. Gently take the blueberries and fold them into the dough with a spatula. Be very careful not to break the blueberries.
  5. Flour the counter and your hands and place the dough on the floured surface. Shape the dough into a slightly thick circle (around 7 - 8 inches across).
  6. Take a butter knife and cute the circle into eight pieces.
  7. Grease a cookie sheet for the scones to bake on - you can use cooking spray or butter. Or, do as I did - I used a pizza stone for mine which I purchased from Pamper Chef.
  8. Place the scones on your baking surface, making sure nothing touches.
  9. In a separate dish, mix the egg white and sugar to create an egg wash. Brush it onto the top of each of the scones. Once they are thoroughly coated, sprinkle the coarsely granulated sugar (Sugar in the Raw) on top of the scones.
  10. Bake scones for 15 - 17 minutes in the oven or until they are golden brown. Serve hot with butter or cream.

    I have had some scones in the past and some were definitely delicious and wonderful with a cup of coffee, others were dry and crumbly, I like your recipe, and I wish my hubby liked these so I could make them. My sister in law has a grain mill and she also makes all kinds of breads and flours, they look like fun and efficient. Thank you for sharing these recipes.

      You are very welcome. This one isn’t crumbly at all. I HATE when scones do that. That’s part of the reason it took me so long to find the ‘right’ recipe.

    Looks good and healthy and it would save me a lot of money if I make those instead of buying breakfast bars.

    These look great except that I don’t like blueberries… I am wondering if I could do this with cranberries and orange rind? Has anyone ever tried to change out a fruit in a scone without altering the recipe in any other way? Thanks!

    • Susan Bewley April 19, 2014 at 1:55 am - Reply

      Hi Tammi,

      You can try it with just about any fruit you like. I change fruit out all the time in my recipes based on what is in season 🙂

    I’ve never made scones although I do bake a lot. I thought they were more difficult than you make them sound with your recipe. I’ll give them a shot!

    These look and sound delicious, however I am on an anti candida diet so I may make this using coconut milk, xylitol and stevia and almond flour. Thanks for sharing.

    • Susan Bewley April 30, 2014 at 11:49 pm - Reply

      Just make sure to be careful with the xylitol if you have dogs. It is very very toxic to them!

    I’ve never tried scones before. It sounds good, not too sweet. Do you really make your own flour?

    I love blueberries and this recipe sounds easy enough to make. I’m not a cook but I can follow a recipe lol I wonder if I could add some nuts or does that make it not a scone then? Thank you for the recipe 🙂
