These scones are the definition of an easy-to-make breakfast that will have you feeling fancy and save you money at the same time! You no longer need to go to a high-end bakery to enjoy a super delicious berry scone.
½cupof fresh or frozen blueberriesor berry of your choice
½cupof plant-based milkI use almond, coconut is also good
Extra sugar and non-dairy milk for top of scones
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a cookie sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix well to distribute ingredients evenly. Add sugar, margarine, zest, blueberries, and milk and stir until everything is mixed. (If you use blackberries or raspberries- fresh are best. You can choose to use frozen, but they tend to break up and turn the scone red/purple.)
Flour a large dry surface and flatten out the dough. Work the dough into a ½ inch circle. Cut the dough like a pizza- that will give you a nice “coffee house” style cut for your scones.
Brush milk on tops of scones and sprinkle with sugar. Bake for about 13 to 15 minutes or until scones are a little brown on top.
Don’t overwork the dough. As tempting as it might be, try to not overdo it when mixing all the ingredients together.
Place your dough in the refrigerator for a few minutes before shaping the scones. This will make slicing the dough easier. If you’re in a rush, you can skip this tip.
Use fresh berries when possible. You can definitely use frozen if that’s all you have on hand, just beware that it’ll cause your scones to have a tint of lilac color.
