Something tasty for a weekend breakfast or brunch, perhaps? I made these last weekend, and my inspiration was perhaps a bit odd. See, we are huge fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and we are re-watching all the episodes. Again. And there's this quote, in season 3, where Giles accuses Wesley of having as much emotional maturity as a... blueberry scone. And I couldn't stop thinking about them.
500 ml flour, plus 1 tbsp
1 tbsp baking powder
3 tbsp sugar
pinch of salt
85 g unsalted butter, plus 1 tbsp
1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
250 ml single cream (somewhere around 15-20% fat content)
200 ml frozen blueberries
Preheat the oven to 200°C.
Mix the frozen blueberries with the one tablespoon of flour, and place back in the freezer.
Mix flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a food processor. Add the butter - which should be cold - and run until it's mixed in. Move the crumby mixture to a bowl, and add the vanilla and the cream. Fold in the blueberries.
Pat this very sticky dough into a flattish circle, about 3 cm high. Divide into eight wedges, and carefully move the triangles to a lined baking sheet. Leave some room between them, they will rise a bit. Place a little pat of butter on top of each one.
Bake for about 15 minutes.
