dsc03566

Such a perfect little bite to eat – these little bites of loveliness are just right whether they’re a snack for hungry hoards after school or gracing the table at an afternoon tea.

dsc03394

Ingredients:

330g self raising flour

40g caster sugar

Zest of 1 lemon

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.
