Blackberry, Lemon and White Chocolate Scones

Blackberry, Lemon and White Chocolate Scones

These blackberry, lemon and white chocolate scones were a quick bake we made to use up some blackberries we picked the other day once again at our local pick-your-own farm.

Picking fruit and veg has definitely been one of our favourite activities this summer! Baking is also an activity that I love to do with my kids, and that they enjoy too. Can’t think why!

Blackberry, Lemon and White Chocolate Scones

Scones are one of my favourite things to bake as they are so quick and easy, you can be eating them within half an hour.

Perfect for an afternoon snack or a quick breakfast on the go if you are feeling naughty.

Blackberry, Lemon and White Chocolate Scones

Scones are the traditional afternoon tea recipe and the added blackberry and lemon make these even better!

The recipe is a traditional scone recipe with added blackberries, white chocolate chunks and flavoured with lemon oil. You can also use lemon zest in place of the lemon oil if you don’t have that.

The dough is pretty soft so you need to use a cutter to cut them out. For a nice brown crust brush with a little milk before baking.

I’m linking up with We Should Cocoa, this month hosted by Kate from The Veg Space.

The theme this month is blackberries.


I’m also linking up with The Great British Blackberry Recipe Round Up from Farmersgirl Kitchen and Lavender and Lovage.

Have a look for lots of blackberry inspiration!

I love scones and these would be so good with the blackberries and chocolate. Thanks for joining us for the Great British Blackberry Recipe Round Up.


These look so delicious Lucy and I love, love, love the idea of adding blackberries to scones. I’ve made apple scones lots of times, but had never thought to try blackberry ones. I like the addition of the sweet bursts of chocolate too. Thanks for joining in with #WeShouldCocoa 🙂

I love blackberries – and took Harry for his first forage for them in the sling the other day. I’ll try these without the white chocolate and take them to the in-laws this weekend I think. I spy your crochet! How’s it going?

I love berries and citrus flavours together, it really brings out the flavour of the berries. I bet these would go perfectly with an afternoon cuppa! 🙂
