Ingredients
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar (I used cane sugar)
  • 1.25 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ Cup unsalted butter, frozen and grated on a grater (I used a box grater) (1/2 a stick of butter)
  • ¼ cup full fat coconut milk or heavy cream (If you don't have any of these, make heavy cream by mixing 1 tbsp melted butter with 3 tbsp milk until thoroughly mixed)
  • ½ large egg (Break egg in a bowl and stir. Use half of it and store the remaining for later)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup blueberries
  • Coarse sugar for sprinkling on top before baking
Vanilla Glaze
  • ¼ cup powdered white sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla or more/less as per taste
  • 1 tbsp milk or half-half (Start by adding 1 tsp and mix & proceed as your desired consistency)
Chocolate glaze
  • ½ cup semi sweet chocolate
  • 1-2 tsp milk
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Adjust baking rack to the middle position. Line a baking tray with parchment paper or silicone mat and keep aside.
  3. In a bowl, add flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Grate the frozen unsalted butter on a box grater and add it in the stirred flour mixture. Mix it using your hands or pastry cutter until it resembles a coarse meal. Set aside.
  4. In another small bowl, add coconut milk or heavy cream, egg and vanilla extract. Stir it until it gets smooth. Add it to the flour mix and using a rubber spatula move it around very very gently until all the flour gets moist. Do not over work the dough or you will get hard scones!!
  5. Slowly add blueberries and using spatula just bring it all together so they get evenly distributed but with minimum stirring of the dough. Transfer the dough mix to the lined baking sheet (Don't panic as it wont look like a proper dough as we are not mixing it too much). Using your hand pat it down into an 8" circle and using a sharp knife cut in 8 slices. If you feel knife is getting stuck, you can coat the knife with all purpose flour everytime you cut in the dough.
  6. Sprinkle with coarse sugar.
  7. Bake in a preheated oven for 22-25 minutes until it gets golden and inside gets cooked. Once out of the oven let it cool.
Glaze
  1. For vanilla glaze, mix all the ingredients until the desired consistency.
  2. For chocolate glaze, warm up the milk for 45seconds to a minutes in the microwave. Stir in the chocolate chips and stir virgorously until chocolate is all melted and you have a smooth mix.
  3. Now drizzle front half of the scones with chocolate glaze and back half with vanilla glaze.
  4. If you want to keep things simple, you can simple glaze some with chocolate and some with vanilla glaze.
  5. Store them in an airtight container.
