Something different for scone lovers

Ingredients (makes 12 Scones)

  • 2 cups self-raising flour
  • 1 tbs caster sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 60g butter, chilled, chopped
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 1/2 teas ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 2 teas vanilla extract
  • Extra buttermilk, for brushing


  1. Preheat oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Position oven rack in the top half of oven
  2. Sift flour, sugar cinnamon and salt into a bowl. Add butter. Using fingertips, rub butter into flour mixture until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs, Add blueberries
  3. Make a well in centre of mixture. Add buttermilk and vanilla. Using a flat-bladed knife, stir until a sticky dough forms. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently until just smooth
  4. Using a lightly floured rolling pin, gently roll dough out until 2cm thick. Using a 6cm round cutter, cut out scones. Press leftover dough together. Repeat to make 12 scones
  5. Place scones, just touching, on prepared tray. Brush with buttermilk. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden and hollow when tapped on top. Serve with whipped cream

  • I love blueberry muffins so im sure I would love these also.


  • I’m not a fan of scones as I find them too dry. Great idea to add fruit as it would give it some moisture


  • Mmm yes please. Would be nice when you don’t have jam on hand too


  • I love these. Less sugar than a muffin, but still delicious.


  • Just wish I could do such a traditional recipe. A CWA lady I know reckons that my body heat stops me making scones the ‘proper’ way, so I stick to using the ‘lemonade’ method and use one recipe on here for just 6 scones. Perfect for just a Darby & Joan – but I will incorporate your cinnamon and blueberries next time and see how it works.
    Thanks for sharing your recipe.


  • Love this recipe and I am planning on baking some this week as this has inspired me


  • I’m not much into scones but my husband being an Irishman sure is !


  • Two of my favourite morning tea snacks blended together. Muffin and a scone in one. Yum


  • Never made scones before. Maybe i will try this recipe


  • A great alternative to normal scones


  • A great way to make it more flavoursome.


  • Thank you for this idea, thinking need to add fruit to my scones.


  • Your blueberry scones look so very delicious! Thanks!


  • I’m going to add some blueberries to my next batch of scones.


  • Oh yum, I am going to have to try these! Thank you!
