Fresh blackberries and lime add a nice texture, flavor and taste to this whole wheat, buttermilk, blackberry lime scones.
Hi there! everyone has their own favorite breakfast right, what about these lightly sweetened fruity blackberry lime breakfast scones? Aren’t these scones absolutely gorgeous? I made these beautiful scones with yummy lime, honey and yogurt glaze a few days back.
I want something sweet for breakfast but something that is not overly sweetened; so these blackberry scones looks a kind of perfect breakfast option. These are lightly sweetened with brown sugar and fresh blackberries. Yes! I love fruits in any form for breakfast but; I don’t want to add fruit in the form of jam or fruit preserve. These blackberries not only gives a nice texture and colors to my whole wheat buttermilk scones; but also adds a nice flavor which you surely can not resist.
This recipe is very simple but you should be careful to use your ingredients wisely otherwise; your final product will be a muffin, not scones. Butter and buttermilk should be chilled, you can also place them in the freezer for 4-7 minutes before adding them to the dough.I usually use yogurt and milk in my scones recipe, but this time, I have used low-fat buttermilk. Don’t worry you’ll get the same beautiful texture and rich taste what you get with yogurt. Also, if your dough is slightly sticky or a bit warm then place the scones in freezer for few minutes before baking.
You can bake these scones ahead (without glaze)and freeze them up to 6 weeks or place them in the refrigerator for up to one week; covered individually with foil or plastic wrap. When you want to eat toast them or just place them in preheated oven (400 º F ) for 2-4 minutes or until they are just warm.
If you plan to eat them a week or later then freeze unbaked scones on a baking sheet. Once they are frozen, then put them in zip-lock bags or freezer safe containers. When you are ready to eat the scones, bake them at 425º F for 18-20 minutes.
