If you love flavor of scones as much as I do, then you will love the tasty flavor of blueberry lemon zest scones. Its the added lemon that give these scones their unique taste.


  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 8 tablespoons cold butter, cut into pats
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 2 tablespoon of lemon zest
  • 2 Cups (self rising flour)
  • One cup of blueberries

Step 1:

Stir together flour, salt and butter until everything is crumbly. If its to moist add a little more flour to make it less moist.

Step 2:

In bowl stir eggs, milk and blueberries and lemon zest. If needed drizzle more milk to make dough hold together.

Step 3:

Shaping the dough:

Create a round mound of dough and cut in half, then cut the half in four and place on greased sheet or if you have a scone pie dish you can use that.

Bake for 14 to 16 minutes at 400 degrees until golden. Remove from oven 5 minutes and glaze.

Drizzle the glaze on the scone. Make sure you drizzle evenly. See recipe for scone glaze below

    OK not everyone has King Arthur Flour - nor do they want it, so is this a self rising flour recipe? That little piece of information would be very helpful to most. Any Self rising flour will work fine.
