Prep time: 5 Minutes

Total time: 23 Minutes

Yield: 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons cold unsalted butter cut into cubes
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 egg slightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen blackberries

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a food processor, add both flours, baking powder, brown sugar, and salt. Pulsate the dry ingredients for a couple of seconds to mix everything. Add the butter. Pulsate again until a coarse meal forms. Transfer everything to a large mixing bowl. Add the heavy cream, egg, honey, and vanilla extract and knead the dough inside the bowl until it comes together. Add the frozen blackberries and work the dough with your hands and fast as you can into a large ball. The less you handle the blackberries, the less purplish colored scones you’ll have. Frozen blackberries also help the berries keep their shape instead of getting smoothed into the dough.
  2. On a floured surface, flatten the dough ball into a disk one inch thick. Cut the disk into eight equal pieces. Place the scones on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake the scones for 15-18 minutes or until the bottoms are golden brown. Transfer scones to a wire rack to cool.
