  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup chilled butter
  • 1/2 tablespoon baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 tablespoon sugar + extra to sprinkle over the scone
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries or frozen
  • ¼ cup milk you may need an extra tablespoon
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • Milk for brushing the scones


  • Preheat oven to 350F/180C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or dust it with flour.
  • In a bowl, sift flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder.
  • Add vanilla and butter, mix with 2 forks or a pastry cutter until it looks like breadcrumbs. My trick is to stab the flour and butter with a whisk; this works nicely too.
  • Add the milk and fold gently.
  • Add the blueberries to the dough and fold gently. Do not over mix.
  • Dust your hands with flour and shape the dough to a 3/4-inch-high disk.
  • Flour the sharp edge of a knife and cut the dough into 8 equal size slices.
  • Brush the scones with milk and sprinkle sugar on top.
  • Bake for 15 – 20 minutes or until golden. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely on a cooling rack.
