120g blueberries, frozen

180ml milk

 

Juice of 1 lemon

2 heaped tablespoons of icing sugar

Makes:  6 large scone slices

The blueberries in this recipe are best frozen, which stops them completely disintegrating and bleeding too much on baking,  buy them fresh and then simply pop them in the freezer before you get going, you don’t need to buy them ready frozen.
