Strawberry Scones

Strawberry Scones

Watch the video for this recipe:

I think it's obvious that I love strawberries after how many strawberry recipes I've posted so far. Strawberry season is one of my favorite time of the year as these fruits are simply incredible, so flavorful and can be used in so many delicious combinations.


This recipe for strawberry scones is very easy, takes only 10 to 15 minutes to prepare and you end up having a memorable breakfast. These scones are best served warm just after taking them out of the oven. The sprinkled sugar on top creates a crispy crust while the interior is soft and filled with strawberries. It's really hard to resist.

For these strawberry scones I've used buttermilk instead of heavy cream. I didn't want to add more fat as they already have butter. I must say they turned absolutely great, really buttery and soft inside, not too sweet, with a great crispy top, simply perfect.

Sooo puffy, soft and easy to prepare! Made already them two days in a row. And my family keeps on asking to make them again :) I sure will be good with cherries or even apples, depending on the season. Thank you very much for posting this recipes. Love your recipes and passion you are making food with.

Thank you Lina for your nice words:) I am really glad you and your family love this recipe.. it's true. any other fruits might work as well, I can imagine apricots with their strong flavor :)

Hello, do i have to consume it within the day i make or can i keep until the next day? if the scones turn hard the next day, is there any way i can make it softer back as i wish to make and share some to my colleagues the next day for breakfast. Thank you :)

No.. you don't have to consume within the day.. you can definitely keep them up to several days.. and if desired just warm them a bit before serving.. they remain quite soft even served at room temperature.Let me know if you try them out:)

My family just picked a lot of wild blueberries yesterday and I've froze them today. Can I still follow this recipe using frozen blueberries? And it's hard to get buttermilk here in Finland so is it possible to use milk+lemon juice as substitute? Thanks in advance

I am sure you can use the frozen ones as well, I would just mix them with 1 tbsp of flour before adding to the dough and make sure you use them really frozen when adding to the dough.When I don't have buttermilk I simply use yogurt and milk instead (90 g yogurt and 30 g milk). It will work as good.

I am going to make these for sure. Have a freezer full of strawberries from picking this summer. I really like the song that you used for the video. What is the name of it and the artist? Thanks!

I made these scones and even though I messed up a bit, they tasted delicious. When mixing in the liquid, I thought the mixture looked too dry and added more milk. All of a sudden the mixture was too wet. My fault. I baked them a bit longer and they were flat but tasted delicious. Next time I'll stick to the recipe!

Hi! I was wondering if I can replace buttermilk with whole milk instead? Please reply, thanks :)

If you were to use heavy cream, would you use the same amount of liquid as the buttermilk?

Scones look amazing! And the song is amazing too! Who's the artist and title of song?

I made these yesterday. They were the most beautiful scones I've ever tasted or made! I was worried at first when the consistency looked off, especially after adding in the Buttermilk, eggs and strawberries, but it turned out beautifully! I glazed the top after it cooled a bit with a lemon glaze. I really wish I could explain how divine it was. Thank you so much for this beautiful recipe (and the other equally wonderful ones you have shared...I look forward to trying as many as I can ????)
