before you start the zesty blueberry scone recipe…
Have you ever made gluten-free sones, and they were dry and heavy or too crumbly? To get that perfect texture of scones, there are a couple of things you need to know. First, freeze the butter for about fifteen minutes before adding it to the flour. The frozen butter will make the scones buttery and not caky. I also start with cold milk and cold eggs.
measuring the flour…
I know it is easier to dip the measuring cup into the flour. However, gluten-free flour is made with various flours and starches and has to be measured properly, or you will have more flour than the recipe requires. I bet you made a muffin batter or a cake batter in the past and found that it was too dry? And more often than not, we blame it on the recipe. No…this happens when the flour is measured incorrectly. To measure the flour, use a scoop to fill the measuring cup, then level the flour off with a knife.
do not overwork the dough…
This is not a cake; you don’t want to be mixing the ingredients until smooth. Once you cut in the butter, add the wet ingredients and mix just until you form a dough. This step is vital. If you overmix, you will have dry hard scones.
fresh or frozen blueberries…
In this recipe, I used fresh blueberries! Fresh blueberries are abundant in the stores now, so why not use them. The good bakeries with the best scones always use fresh blueberries. Sure, you can use frozen blueberries, but the scones will not have the same texture and fresh blueberry flavour. I highly recommend using fresh fruit when available to make scones.
lemon glaze or not…
If you like your scones sweeter, then go ahead and drizzle the scones with a lemon glaze. I feel the sweetness from the blueberries is perfect. So I only sprinkle a little turbinado sugar over the dough just before baking and skip the glaze.
serving the scones…
Gluten-free sones are best the same day when they are baked. And, they should be served slightly warm. For leftover scones, place them in an airtight container and just before serving, pop them in a hot oven for about ten minutes. Or, you can heat the blueberry scones in a microwave for about ten seconds. Enjoy for breakfast, brunch or a snack.
