Irish Blueberry Scones

If you went to a friend’s or family in Ireland you’d be greeted with a hot cup of coffee and freshly baked traditional Irish Blueberry Scones. I adore these scones, which have a golden crust and a light dusting of sugar and are baked with dried juicy or fat juicy blueberries. As you sip a nice cup of Irish tea, they crumble between your fingers. This is a delectable St. Patrick’s Day treat.

Scones are pretty challenging to perfect, particularly for an Irish baker attempting to recreate her mother’s pastries in America. Although this is not a hard and fast rule, you can substitute cake flour for bread flour or all-purpose flour. If you can’t find cake flour, try a flour made from soft winter wheat from states like Tennessee. White Lily flour performs admirably.

Best Baking Tips For Irish Blueberry Scones

  • To ensure lighter scones, always sift the flour and baking powder together.
  • A light touch incorporates air and imparts softness to the scone dough. Lift the flour high as you squeeze in the butter, creating air and lightness with a soft touch.
  • Remember that too much kneading and blending will result in dry, hard scones.
  • When molding your dough, don’t use too much flour.
  • Instead of pounding the dough with a rolling pin, gently press the dough form a shape with your palms.
  • Flour the cutter’s edges before cutting out the scones. Instead of twisting the cutter, push it through the dough solidly, raise, and release.
  • Work as fast as you can at the moment the wet ingredients touch the dry.


I bet you may like these scones as much as I do. They are delicious as you expect.
