Blueberry Lavender Scones

These blueberry lavender scones are a delightfully moist and well-balanced treat with every bite. They will brighten up anyone’s day and make a perfect addition to your breakfast or brunch. Their beauty and elegance are matched only by their delicious taste.

I absolutely adore baking scones, and these blueberry scones with a touch of lavender lemon sugar are a true delight. They’re not too sweet, and the combination of these summer flavors is simply irresistible.

These scones are perfect on their own without any icing, but if you prefer a sweeter treat, make a simple lemon icing to drizzle on top.

Ingredients:

  • 2 ¼ cup all-purpose flour (270 grams)
  • 1/3 cup butter cold (or frozen) and grated (75 grams)
  • ½ cup buttermilk cold
  • ½ cup sugar (90 grams)
  • 1/8 cup cornstarch (14 grams)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon of dried organic lavender
  • zest of two lemons
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon dried, organic, food grade lavender
  • Optional lemon icing:
  • ½ cup powdered sugar (50 grams)
  • juice of two lemons
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

How to make them:

  • Preheat oven to 350°F or 176°C . Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Combine flour and cornstarch in a large bowl and set aside.
  • In a small bowl create a lavender lemon sugar by combining your sugar, lavender, lemon zest and vanilla extract. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together your egg and cold buttermilk.
  • Grate your frozen butter into your flour mixture an use a pastry cutter (or your fingers) to combine until they’re crumbly, pea sized pieces.
  • Make a well in the center of your dough and and whisk in your egg and buttermilk. Also add in your lavender lemon sugar. Combine until a thick dough forms, using your hands to gently kneed until dough is crumbly, but easy to manage.
  • Place your dough onto your parchment lined baking sheet, pat into an 8-inch circle, and cut into 8 wedges with a sharp knife. Brush with your 2 tablespoons buttermilk.
  • Arrange the wedges around the baking sheet, leaving room for rising and expansion while they bake.
  • Bake for 30 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Make your icing while your scones bake.
  • Icing: Add the powdered sugar, lemon juice, and vanilla extract to a small bowl and stir until combined. Drizzle over scones after scones have cooled for a few minutes.

Notes

  • While it’s tempting to mix your dough until it becomes one solid mass, this will result in tough scones. To get a light and airy texture for not only tastier but also easier-to-eat baked goods, keep mixing just until ingredients are combined into small clumps – do NOT overdo the arm work! I love using my hands because you can feel how much moisture is left within each piece of flour or butter without having any worries.
  • Optional: Pop them in the freezer again right before baking for 15 minutes to cool your butter again, which will make them extra flaky out of the oven!
  • Brush the tops with a little buttermilk before you bake to achieve a crispy, golden brown top.
  • Best when enjoyed immediately! Enjoy within 3 days of baking. Baked scones freeze well for up to 3 months. Thaw at room temperature or in the refrigerator, then warm up to your liking before serving. Scone dough can be frozen for up to one month.
