Lemon Blueberry Scones

 The combination of lemon blueberry reminds me of spring and I am hoping that these scones inspire some spring weather! I am so over winter and all the snow. I am ready for some warmer days and pretty spring flowers.  

I love that scones are so quick and easy to make! They only take a few minutes to mix together and they only take around 15 minutes in the oven. All in all, you can have a fresh batch of scones in a half hour! Which is particularly awesome, if like me, you decide you HAVE to make scones at 10:30PM on a Monday evening. 

These lemon blueberry scones are full of flavour! The lemon brightens these scones and brings a delicious fresh flavour to them. While the blueberries add sweetness. The scones are deliciously buttery and have the perfect crumb. They make for a delicious breakfast or afternoon snack. I love them with a warm mug of tea (or coffee!).

Lemon Blueberry Scones 

Makes 8 Scones


1 ½ c flour

¼ c sugar

2 tsp baking powder

½ tsp salt

Zest, from 1 lemon

½ c butter, grated

½ c heavy cream

1 egg

1 c blueberries


Preheat oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and lemon zest. Using either a pastry cutter, a fork or your hands, cut cold butter into flour mixture. Course crumbs should form, almost like a wet sand.

In a small bowl, beat together egg and cream. Add liquid ingredients to flour and butter mixture. Mix until just combined. Add in the blueberries . Mix until incorporated.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead until combined. Shape dough into a large circular shape, about 1 inch thick. Cut into 8 equal triangular pieces. Spaced evenly apart, place scones onto prepared baking sheet. Brush tops with extra cream.

Bake for 14-16 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Allow scones to cool on baking sheet before transferring to serving platter. Store in airtight container.

I am continuing my recent trend of baking with fruit! Blueberries are currently in season! I love how they look dotted throughout this lemon bundt cake. The tart and tangy lemon pairs perfectly with the juicy sweet blueberries.  The addition of sour cream to this bundt cake helps to keep it nice and moist even days after baking (if your bundt cake even lasts that long 😉 mine is usually gone within a day!).  

I can't believe that this is the first bundt cake that I am sharing on the blog! My original plan for this recipe was to make a Lemon Blueberry Loaf, similar to this Strawberry Cream Cheese Bread. Then my plans changed, while I was organizing my baking supplies and I came across my much neglected bundt cake pan. Bundt cakes are great because they are usually simple and easy to make and always turn out beautifully. They are the perfect thing to serve when you have company, top them with a simple glaze and place on a cake plate and you have a simple yet stunning dessert. I adjusted the recipe and changed my plans to create this delicious moist lemon blueberry bundt cake.  I am so happy I did!  To really amp up the lemon flavour I added a simple lemon glaze to my cake. You can always omit it if you wish. I think it ups the dessert factor and adds to the beauty of the cake. However, if you're making this more for a sweet breakfast or delicious snack then feel free to omit it!
