Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups (375g) self-raising flour
  • 30g butter, chilled, chopped
  • 1 tbs icing sugar mixture
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/4 cups (310ml) buttermilk
  • 75g blueberries
  • 1/4 cup (45g) white choc bits
  • 2 tsp finely grated lemon rind
  • Lemon curd, to serve
  • Double cream or dollop cream, to serve

Method

STEP 1 

Sift the flour into a large bowl. Add the butter and use your fingertips to rub the butter into the flour until it resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add the icing sugar and salt. Make a well in the centre. Add the buttermilk, blueberries, choc bits and lemon rind. Use a butter knife to stir in a cutting motion until a soft, sticky dough forms. (Add more buttermilk to soften the dough, if necessary.)

STEP 2 

Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and lightly knead until just smooth. Press into a 5cm-thick disc. Use a lightly floured 6cm pastry cutter to cut discs from the dough, gently re-rolling dough if necessary.

STEP 3

Preheat pie maker. Place 4 dough discs in the pie maker holes. Close the lid and cook for 8 mins or until golden brown. Transfer the scones to a wire rack to cool. Repeat with the remaining dough discs to make 12 scones.

STEP 4

Serve the scones warm or at room temperature with lemon curd and cream.
