Small Batch Blueberry Scone Recipe
I recently published this small batch blueberry scone recipe for Patreon supporters of Hummingbird High. The scone recipe is small batch and makes only SIX mini blueberry scones, the perfect serving for 3 hungry people, or 6 folks with more self control, lol.
The scone recipe is loosely based on the crème fraîche scone recipe in my cookbook, Weeknight Baking. But to make it more accessible for my Patreon supporters, I swapped out the crème fraîche with sour cream. Both keep the scones wonderfully soft and moist, and add tangy flavors to contrast with the sweet blueberries.
Why You Should Make This Small Batch Blueberry Scone Recipe
In addition to making delicious blueberry scones, this recipe also has other advantages:
- This blueberry scone recipe requires NO PREP.
When researching recipes for Weeknight Baking, I learned that using cold ingredients in a scone recipe results in scones that are super tender and soft. As a result, for this recipe, you can use ingredients like butter, eggs, and sour cream straight from the fridge! There’s no need to bring anything to room temperature, saving you a ton of prep time.
- This blueberry scone recipe requires MINIMAL INGREDIENTS.
Because this blueberry scone recipe is small batch, it only requires 1 cup of flour, a few tablespoons of sugar, butter, and 1 egg.
- This blueberry scone recipe is LOW MESS.
Unlike other recipes that instruct you to knead the scone dough and form it into specific shapes, all you need to do is mix the dough. You then portion it out with a cookie dough scoop, enabling you to keep your hands clean and handle the dough as little as possible.
- This blueberry scone recipe STORES WELL.
The scone dough keeps wonderfully in the freezer. Similar to cookie dough, you can portion out the scones and freeze them for baking later!

NO TIME TO BAKE?!
Over the past several years of running Hummingbird High, I kept a crucial aspect of my life hidden from my readers: I had a full-time, extremely demanding job in the tech world. In my debut cookbook, Weeknight Baking, I finally reveal the secrets to baking delicious desserts on a tight schedule.
