Blackberry Lime Scones with Sweet Glaze

Vibrant Blackberry Lime Scones for Breakfast or Brunch

Makes 8 scones


Blackberry Lime Scones

  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • ½ tsp salt

  • 2 tsp baking powder

  • ½ tsp baking soda

  • ½ cup granulated sugar

  • 2 tsp lime zest

  • ½ cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed

  • 1 large egg, beaten

  • ⅔ cup whole milk

  • 1 tsp fresh lime juice

  • 1 cup fresh blackberries

  • 1 large egg, beaten with 1 tsp whole milk (egg wash for brushing on top)

  • 2 Tbsp granulated sugar, for sprinkling on top

Lime Glaze

  • ¾ cup confectioners’ sugar

  • 2 Tbsp fresh lime juice

  • 2 tsp lime zest


Blackberry Lime Scones

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and zest until combined.

  3. Using a pastry blender, two forks, or your hands, work the butter into the flour until the mixture is sandy and crumbly.

  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, and lime juice. Add this to the flour mixture, and stir together until just moistened, being sure not to overmix the dough.

  5. Gently fold in the blackberries using a rubber spatula. (It’s okay if some of the berries break up.)

  6. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and shape into an 8-inch circle. Cut the dough into 8 even triangles, and transfer the scones to the prepared baking sheet.

  7. Lightly brush the top of each scone with the egg wash. Then sprinkle the top of each scone with sugar.

  8. Bake the scones for 18-20 minutes, or until lightly golden brown. Allow the scones to cool on the baking sheet, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

Lime Glaze

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the confectioners’ sugar, lime juice, and zest until combined and smooth. Drizzle the glaze on top of the scones and allow the glaze to set before serving.
