With it being the first week of Spring, we decided that tea parties and scones are in season. We have a book on scones and it looked like the most delicious recipe was for Blueberry Crumbcake Scones.
Here's how it went: We measured out all the ingredients, because honestly it makes the process soooo much faster and easier.
We mixed the wet ingredients (eggs, vanilla, lemon zest, and milk) and the dry ingredients(flour, baking powder, and salt) separately and then put them together.
Then in went the fresh blueberries. YUM!
Next the topping of crumbly butter, cinnamon, and flour. Here is the new part that we didn't know about: you cut the Scone into 8 pieces before you bake it.
It bakes for about 35 mins or until it is golden brown and a tester comes out clean. Then you can enjoy it with some tea. These things are delicious when served warm.
Lessons learned: Not all Scones are created equal. Fresh blueberries in baking is something we are going to have to try again. We are glad we now know how GOOD scones are made so we will be having them on Easter, per Mom's request. Cran-Orange perhaps?
