“Eat Me” Blueberry Lemon Scones ~ #SundaySupper

Happy Sunday! This week the #SundaySupper crew is going to the cinema. Heather from Girlichef is hosting a movie-themed #SundaySupper this week. We’re making movie-inspired recipes. I just about jumped for joy as I was signing up to participate this week.

I don’t watch a lot of television, but I do like a good movie. Squirrel and I signed up for Netflix about a  year ago, which means we get to watch as many movies as we like. Usually, Friday night is our movie night. Sometimes it’s just the two of us, but most of the time we head over to my mom and dad’s house to watch a movie with the family.

I’m a wee bit obsessed with Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. As you can probably guess, Disney’s Alice in Wonderland is my favorite movie. I love the Alice books so much that I decided to use the movie as the topic for my 20-page research paper that I wrote last semester.

In honor of Alice and our movie-themed #SundaySupper, I decided to make “Eat Me” blueberry lemon scones. If you’re familiar with Disney’s Alice in Wonderland or the Alice books, then you know that Alice is forced to consume little cakes scrolled with the words Eat Me and cocktails (non-alcoholic, of course) scrolled with the words Drink Me in order to fit through the various doors and holes throughout the movie. I thought scones would be an appropriate choice to celebrate Alice and the rest of her “mad” friends. Besides, I adore scones; especially these, because they’re healthy.

I was originally supposed to make you strawberry orange scones, but I couldn’t find any decent strawberries. After I couldn’t find strawberries, I decided to make blackberry orange scones. Well, that didn’t quite work out as planned. I made a boo-boo during the mixing process; I forgot to add the sugar. I tried slipping the sugar in at the end (knowing that this was a bad idea to begin with and that my efforts would be futile), but I proceeded, keeping my fingers secretly crossed behind my back like a sneaky school girl breaking a promise. The universe didn’t have my back. Instead, it kicked me to the curb and didn’t return. The result wasn’t pretty. The scones looked like crater-pitted blobs.

So, I started over again. Come, join me for a “Mad” tea party…

The second time was a charm. Just look at that lemon glaze dripping off the sides. Yum!

Since I’m trying to eat better, I decided to create a healthier version. These are full of whole wheat flour, greek yogurt, fat-free butter milk, and fresh blueberries.

The result is a guilt-free, moist hunk of carbohydrate. Warning: Don’t be surprised if you go “mad” while nibbling on these.

Author:
Recipe type: Scones, Quick Bread
Serves: 11
Ingredients
Scones
  • 2½ cups white whole wheat flour
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • ¼ tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tbs. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. kosher salt
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, cold and cut into cubes
  • 1¼ cups fat-free buttermilk
  • ¼ cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 egg
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp. lemon zest
  • 1 cup frozen or fresh blueberries (do not thaw frozen blueberries)
Glaze
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. lemon zest
  • 3½ tbs. lemon juice
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Using a pastry cutter or fork, cut the butter into the flour until it resembles very coarse sand (the mixture will still be a bit dry).
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together buttermilk, Greek yogurt, egg, vanilla extract, and lemon zest.
  4. Using a rubber spatula, gently stir the buttermilk mixture into the flour mixture. Gently fold in the blueberries. Scoop the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet using a large ice cream scoop.
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the top of the scones are golden brown. Allow to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes; transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  6. Drizzle the glaze onto the slightly warm scones.
Glaze
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together powdered sugar and lemon zest. Slowly whisk in the lemon juice until smooth.

    I love it! This was the perfect theme for you, then :) And I would find the little tag marked “eat me” absolutely irresistible if it was sitting on a plate of these. I guess blueberry-lemon was just meant to be…yum!

    SUCH a cute idea, and third time most certainly is the charm!

    Sooo, I make a lot of enemies when I say this buuut…I’m not a fan of Alice in Wonderland. I just…don’t like things that are trippy, if that makes sense, and Alice in Wonderland is soooooo trippy lol

    That said, I don’t hate it either and I’ve seen my fair share of the cartoon and a couple random people versions on TV over the years

    Unlike Alice’s cake which made her grow and grow, it sounds like yours is the healthy equivalent, Jennie. :) They are beautiful as well, with all that drippy lemon glaze. My daughters watched the animated Disney version of Alice in Wonderland so many times as they were growing up that I’ll bet I could still sing a long with the songs. Good times!

    Alice in Wonderland has always been one of m favorite stories. I used to read the book often when I was a kid and of course I have seen disneys cartoon and then when that new movie came out a couple of years ago I was even more mesmerized. ^.^

    Your blueberry lemon scones are calling my name. Is that suppose to happen? ;)

    By the way, the scones look FANTASTIC – blueberry & lemon go so well together. YUM!

    The #SS theme is so cool this week – I’m sad I wasn’t able to participate! I love that you love Alice in Wonderland – it’s one of my fave stories too (I’m intrigued about your 20 page essay – I’d love to read it someday if you were willing to share!). Sorry to hear about the agonizing process you went through to make successful scones but I’d say it was all worth it to create these beauties. I used to buy a giant, glazed scone every day in undergrad until I realized I was basically consuming a hunk of butter with a bit of flour and sugar. I won’t have that problem with your version – yay for healthy scones!
