Eggless Blueberry Scone

Blueberry Scone is a popular American pastry. It tastes best when served warm. The key point in the process of making the scone is that all the ingredients must be freezing cold. Using frozen butter gives a flaky texture and a great mouth feel. I did not use sour cream in the recipe, instead used Hung Curd. Click here for home made Hung Curd recipe. This will make 8 big scones.

Ingredients

Sugar – 1/2 cup + 1 table spoon
Baking Powder – 2 tea spoon
Baking Soda – ¼ tea spoon

Lemon Zest – 1 tea spoon
Butter (frozen) – 8 table spoons + 1 table spoon

Sour Cream / Hung Curd – ½ cup
Blueberry – 1 ½ cups

Method
Freeze the butter for at least 2 hours. Remove the frozen butter and grate it using a grater and it will look like Mozzarella cheese after grating. Keep the grated butter back in the freezer.
Mix 2 cups of flour, ½ cup sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and lemon zest well and keep aside
In another bowl, mix the sour cream and whole milk together well
Remove the grated butter from the freezer and add it to the dry mixture and incorporate it with the hands by pressing the flour and butter in between the fingers.
Once the butter is incorporated, add the milk mixture and fold it in.
Do not over mix, just enough to incorporate
Heavily (really heavily) flour the working surface and knead the dough about 5 to 6 times to bring together
Now roll it to a 12 inch square shape and fold it like a letter horizontally, now fold again vertically
Flour lightly a plate and transfer the dough into the plate and keep it in the freezer for 5 to 10 minutes
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (convection mode – 395 degrees F)
Line a baking tray with parchment or aluminum foil and set aside
After 5 to 10 minutes, remove the dough from the freezer and roll it to a 12 inch square again
Put the blueberry on it and press it with hand
Roll the dough horizontally into a tight log (use a bench scrapper to help and flour more if it sticks)
Gently press the log from top to make it to a rectangle block instead of a cylinder
Using a very sharp knife cut them into 4 pieces and cut each piece diagonally
Place the scones on the baking sheet (leave space in between for expansion)
Melt 1 table spoon of butter.
Brush the scones with butter and sprinkle sugar on top
Bake them for 18 to 25 minutes until golden from all sides. Turn the tray half way through to ensure even cooking.
Once done, remove from the baking tray to a cooling rack and allow it to cool for 10 minutes and serve!!!
