Blueberry Scones

Serves: Makes 16
Total Time: 1 hour 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 ½ cups self-raising flour 
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar 
  • ¼ tsp salt 
  • 30 g butter 
  • 1 ¼ cups buttermilk, approximately 
  • 1 ½ tsp lemon zest 
  • 60 g fresh blueberries

Instructions

1

Preheat the oven to 220°C. Grease a baking tray.

2

Sift flour, sugar and salt together in a bowl. Rub in butter with your fingertips until the mixture resembles a crumb consistency. Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture and add buttermilk, zest and blueberries. Using a knife, cut buttermilk through a flour mixture to form a soft, sticky dough (add a little more buttermilk only if needed). Gently knead the dough on a floured surface until smooth. 

3

Using your hands, press the dough out evenly until 2cm thick. Cut 5cm rounds from dough, place, side-by-side, on the tray. Gently knead scraps of dough together; repeat pressing and cutting, place on the tray.

4

Brush tops with a little extra milk and bake for 20 minutes or until browned and scones sound hollow when tapped firmly on the top with your fingers. 

5

Serve with jam and cream.
