These better-than-the-bakery blueberry scones are bursting with juicy blueberry goodness.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups white self-raising flour, plus extra for bench
  • 1/2 cup wholemeal self-raising flour
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • zest from 1 lemon
  • 1/3 cup margarine or dairy-free spread, very cold
  • 1 cup So Good Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C (390°F). Line an oven tray with baking paper.
  2. Place flours, sugar, salt and zest into a large bowl and whisk to combine. Add margarine and use fingertips to quickly rub the spread into the flour until crumbly. Make a well in centre of the flour mixture.
  3. Mix lemon juice and So Good Almond Milk, then pour into the well. Stir, using a flat-bladed knife and a cutting motion, until a soft dough forms.
  4. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured bench-top, flatten slightly with floured fingers, and sprinkle over the blueberries. Fold dough to enclose the berries, then gently knead and turn twice (see Tips).
  5. Transfer dough onto prepared tray and use your hands to pat into a 20 cm round, 2.5 cm thick. Use a floured knife to cut the round into 8 wedges (as you would a pizza). Separate wedges slightly, to leave a few millimetres between each.
  6. Bake 15 - 18 minutes until golden and cooked through. Cool on tray 5 mins, serve warm.

Tips

  • For a tender and well-risen scone, work dough as little as possible. It’s better to have a dough that is slightly wet, then dry.
  • For a special treat, serve scones with a dollop of Greek yoghurt and a drizzle of honey.
