    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Pre-heat oven to 200 C / Gas 6. Grease a baking tray or line with baking parchment.
    2. In a large bowl mix together the 260g flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Rub in butter until mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
    3. Mix blueberries with the 1 tablespoon flour to avoid sticking. Fold into the butter mixture.
    4. In a separate bowl whisk together 1 egg, vanilla extract and milk. Add to the dough and quickly mix together. Be careful not to crush the blueberries.
    5. Divide the dough into 8 scones and place on the prepared baking tray. Leave a generous amount of space between the scones. Brush the scones with beaten egg.
    6. Bake in the preheated oven for 18 to 20 minutes until the scones are golden. Place on a cooling rack to cool.

    Scones came out very well. I didnt add 1 tablespoon of baking powder. Reduced the amount a little bit and no vanilla essence. The whole family enjoyed it.  -  28 Jan 2014


    It was too salty and yes I followed the recipe. Also, more like muffin than scone. Disappointed.  -  26 Jul 2015


    These were lovely but I'd say they need a bit less milk, about 100ml was fine and they needed longer to cook too, more like 25mins. Delicious though  -  08 Jun 2015
