Delicious Discoveries: Mother’s day breakfast delight

Today I’m taking you in the Kitchen for a Mother’s day breakfast delight! Tomorrow morning wake up a whip up a batch of these tasty Lavender Lime Scones to bring to your Mama! They are very fluffy and full of flavor and are a perfect morning treat with a latte or cup of English tea. Your mother will definitely appreciate this thoughtful surprise!

Lavender Lime Scones


1 ½ cups AP flour
¼ cup sugar, granulated
1 ¼ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt, kosher
zest and juice of 2 limes

1 ½ teaspoons lavender, dried
5 tablespoons butter, diced into bits
½ cup + 1 tablespoon milk, whole


Preheat oven to 375° F. Blend together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda,
salt, lime zest and lavender. Using a fork mix the butter into the flour mixture until the texture resembles a butter bits the size of small peas. Mix together the lime juice with the milk and add to the scone mixture. Mix just until dough just comes together. On a lightly floured surface, shape dough into a disc shape about 8-9 inch in diameter. Using a long chef’s knife slice the disc into eight even sized pieces and place the scones on a baking sheet lined with a silpat or parchment paper. Brush with remaining tablespoon of milk and sprinkle the tops lightly with some coarse sugar. Bake the scones for about 20 minutes or until they are just slightly golden on the top. Serve the scones with some butter and honey, and make it a light breakfast with some fruit salad and yogurt.


Yield: 8 scones
