Strawberry Scones

Its Spring!! Its Spring!!

Hurrah…

But it’s been a very chilly Spring. Which doesn’t dampen my enthusiasm for strawberries one bit, especially when there’s a huge sale on strawberries right now — three 1 lbs punnet for $5!!!

We have been topping everything with strawberries. Well, me, to be exact. The Husband still has it on the side. After much coaxing, he admits that having fruits as a topping is conditional for him. Especially when there’s a hint of sourness in any fruit. Just a hint and side they go.

Oh well. I’d better give up with a teensy-bit of sanity left.

Happily baked some strawberry scones and relish the fact that I need to restock on strawberries, while the sale last! Off I go.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 6 tbsp cold unsalted butter, diced
  • 2 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 cup strawberries, hulled and finely diced
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

optional garnish: egg wash & granulated sugar.

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Add hulled and finely diced strawberries in a bowl. Toss it with cornstarch. Set aside.
  3. Sift flours, baking powder, salt and sugar in a large bowl. Add cold diced butter and lemon zest. With a pastry cutter, work through the flour to resemble coarse crumbs.
  4. Transfer coarse crumbs into a stand mixer, fitted with a paddle.
  5. With the stand mixer on low speed, throw in diced strawberries and vanilla extract. Mix only until it forms a loose dough. Do not over mix.
  6. Lightly dust hands and parchment paper with some flour. Scoop up wet dough onto baking surface, forming it into a 3/4 thick circled disk.
  7. With a sharp knife, divide scones into 8 wedges. Lightly brush on some egg wash and a generous sprinkling of granulated sugar.
  8. Bake scones for 15 to 20 minutes or until the center is cooked all the way through.
  9. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes on the baking sheet, before cooling off completely on a cooling rack.
  10. Serve it (pinky-up!) with your favorite afternoon tea.

I repeat myself everyday looking outside the window that spring is here! But not really, its still rainy and cold here at my end! I think your strawberry scone will definitely bring some sunshine in my life:) Love the combination of wheat and almond flour!

It’s finally warm here enough to signify spring. Hopefully it graces your way, soon. Otherwise, bake some scones to celebrate spring 🙂

YUM!! I am recipe testing this weekend with strawberries 🙂 Doughnuts to be precise. Not sure if I am going to use fresh, dried or a combination of both. I was thinking fresh strawberries would be too watery, but you use them here, and it looks like everything worked out just fine!

Your strawberry scones are so yummy! The transition from winter to spring is rather long and gradual here. However I’ve read that because of the warmer winter we had in the UK this year, strawberries were on shelves one week before the time planned time. One week! I’ve learnt that certain products are “released”on the market at a very specific time.
Beautiful pics, as usual!

Im having my morning coffee and I want some of these scones to go with.
I also have a pint of strawberries in the fridge, I need to try making scones. I’ve never been a baker so I feel nervous venturing into it.

I’m really happy about the spring weather too, and strawberries! We have strawberry monsters at home and we consume quite a bit. Having seasonal foods is so much more economical and delicious (California is pretty good in terms of fruits all year around but cost wise, not so much). Your scones look so good! Never had strawberries in scones before!

They look so awesome. Even I made strawberry scones last year to bid adieu to strawberry season. 🙂 These look great and I am going to try this recipe with cherries in coming season. 😀

Thanks for sharing.

So beautiful Kiran!! You are seriously one of my very favourite food stylists and photographers out there. I mean it 🙂 I am glad that you’re getting some beautiful Spring weather, finally! And to top it off, beautiful plump Spring strawberries. I’d be squirreling home punnets all the time also, if I were you! Love this post. Gorgeous scones! xx
