  • 2 tsp Baking Powder

  • 90 grams cold butter, cut in cubes

  • 1 cup fresh Blueberries, washed and dried

  • 1 egg+ 1 egg for egg wash

  • 1/2 cup Cream

  • 1 lemon’s zest

  • 2-3 drops of Vanilla essence

  • 2-3 drops of Lemon extract

  • 2 tsp Brown sugar

  • 1 small cup Jam or Clotted cream for serving

Directions

  • 01

    Preheat your oven to 200 degrees C.

  • 02

    In a large bowl, combine your flour, baking powder and sugar. Give a good whisk together.

  • 03

    Add the chilled butter cubes and with your hands, mix them in the flour mixture until you get a bread crumb like texture. This step is very important for flaky scones!

  • 04

    Throw in the fresh Blueberries and gently fold them into the mix. Set aside.

  • 05

    In a separate bowl, break the egg and beat lightly.

  • 06

    Add the cream, Vanilla essence, Lemon extract and the lemon zest. Mix well!

  • 07

    Add this liquid to the dry mixture little by little and bring the dough together. Do not over knead!

  • 08

    Transfer the dough to the flat surface and sprinkle some flour in it. With light hands, knead it 2-3 times till it forms a ball. Gently pat it in a thick circle after that.

  • 09

    With a biscuit cutter, cut in small circles or triangles and place on greased baking tray.

  • 10

    With a pastry brush, apply some beaten egg all over the the cut shapes. This will give your scones a lovely glaze.

  • 11

    Lastly, sprinkle some brown sugar on top of them.

  • 12

    Bake for around 20 minutes at 200 degree C, till they get golden brown in color!

  • 13

    Cool completely before lathering them with clotted cream and your favourite Jam. Serve with Tea! Enjoy!
