DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 200 C (400 F) and line two trays with baking paper.
  • Put the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt to the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment (you can also make these by hand).
  • Cut the butter into small cubes and add it to the mixer. Turn it onto a low speed and mix until the mixture is sandy but you still have pea-sized flecks of butter through it.
  • Add the buttermilk and lemon zest, and mix on a low speed until the dough begins to come together.
  • At this point, turn the dough out onto a floured surface and add the blueberries.
  • Mix the dough together with your hands, being careful not to knead it or crush the blueberries, until it comes together. You may need to add a little more buttermilk.
  • Pat the dough into a rectangle about 1.5 inches thick.
  • Using a sharp chef's knife, cut the dough lengthways down the middle, then cut each long rectangle into 6 triangles.
  • Place on the prepared baking trays, brush with melted butter and sprinkle with raw sugar.
  • Bake for 20 - 30 minutes, until golden.
  • Eat while warm!
