The ingredients for these scones are easy to find and so simple! Here are some of the key ingredients that you will need:
Flour – All-purpose flour is best. However, here’s a post about how to replace regular flour with almond flour!
Butter – Unsalted butter that’s cold and grated (or finely chopped) works best for creating a flaky texture in these scones.
Maple Syrup – The star of the show! These scones are sweetened with a little bit of sugar and maple syrup, giving them depth and flavor.
Milk – Regular milk is best, but any type of milk works great.
Yogurt or Sour Cream – Whole milk yogurt or sour cream bring moisture to this delicious recipe!
Blueberries – Frozen or fresh are both great options!
Glaze – Optional, but definitely make these scones next level. Simply whisk powdered sugar, maple syrup, and milk or water together!
How to Make Maple Blueberry Scones
Making Maple Blueberry Scones is actually REALLY easy to do! Here’s how to whip them up in no time:
- Mix the cold butter (grated or cut into small pieces) into the dry ingredients.
- Whisk the liquid ingredients together.
- Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix.
- Fold in the blueberries.
- Place the dough on a floured surface and flatten into a circle.
- Slice into wedges.
- Bake, then top with glaze!
Tip: Slice the scone wedges with a chopping knife rather than with a pizza cutter. A pizza cutter tends to pull the dough with it, instead of cutting out a clean shape!
How to Bake Scones Without Egg
Want to omit the egg from your scones? Simply replace with a flax seed egg or omit the egg and substitute with an extra 1/4 cup milk.
Tips for Storing Scones
It’s best to let scones completely cool down before storing! Here’s how to store scones after they have cooled down:
At room temperature (recommended): Place scones in a container and cover with foil or lid. Another option is to place them in a freezer bag! Scones can last 1-2 days at room temperature.
In the refrigerator: If you need scones to last longer, place them in an airtight container and store in the fridge for 3-5 days!
Can I Freeze Baked Scones?
Yes! Freshly baked scones can be stored in the freezer. To store, simply let them cool down completely and place in an airtight container. Place them in the refrigerator for about an hour, them move them to the freezer and store for up to 3 months!
How to Reheat Scones in a Microwave
To reheat scones, simply heat them up in the microwave for 15-20 seconds on high. Be sure that the scones are fully thawed out before reheating!
