Why I Love This Recipe

This Mid-Western recipe has a bit southern charm with it's hint of lime that really pairs nicely with the blueberries. The cornmeal adds a special something that adds body and texture, but the scones remain unexpectedly light. I fell in love with them the very first bite!

Cornmeal Blueberry Scones was generously shared by Michael Joe Gadberry's wife in her Blueberry Cookbook written for her sister who has a blueberry farm.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 1/3 cup flour
2/3 cup cornmeal
2 Tbsp granulated sugar
2 Tbsp brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup cold butter
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp lime zest
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 tsp corn starch

1 cup powdered sugar
4 tsp lime juice

3 Tbsp toasted almonds, chopped
(for sprinkling over top of glazed scones)


Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Coat large baking sheet with cooking spray. (I used a 10" iron skillet)

Combine flour, cornmeal, sugars, baking powder, soda, and salt in a large bowl. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center and set aside.

In a separate bowl, whisk eggs, and combine buttermilk, and lime zest. Add this mixture to the flour mixture and stir with a fork until just moistened.

In another separate bowl toss blueberries and cornstarch to coat, and then add to scone dough. Stir gently 3-5 turns until berries are incorporated.

Using a large spoon, drop dough into 12 mounds leaving 1 inch between mounds. (I placed all the dough into a hot 10" iron skillet, then cut into 8 wedges)

Bake 12-15 minutes until golden.

While scones are still warm drizzle icing made from powdered sugar and lime juice.

Let cool 10 minutes before serving.

These are heavenly and best served warm.

A nice cup of java
