Each year our church does a fundraiser, Labor Day Breakfast. This, my folks, is the-best-breakfast! And because I am a carb lover, I am in sweet roll heaven. All homemade, with the best sausage on the side..... The diet is on hold today.
My contribution this year....
2 C. flour
1/4 C. sugar
1 Tbl. baking powder
1/4 teas. salt
1/4 teas. baking soda
1 Tbl. grated orange or lemon zest (I used orange)
1/4 C. butter/margarine (I used margarine)
3/4 C. buttermilk or plain yogurt (I used buttermilk)
1 teas. vanilla
1-2 c. blueberries (I used fresh)
Mix dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Cut the butter into the dry ingredients with a pastry blender, until fine.
Mix the wet ingredients in another bowl then add to the dry ingredients, stirring with a fork until all the mixture has been moistened. Fold in the blueberries.
I try not to mix any more than I have to.
Drop by large spoonfuls onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and flatten a little so the dough is not mounded.
Bake at 400 for 18 minutes.
This recipe comes from the Blog, What Matters Most? Anneliese's Low Fat Blueberry Scones.
