Ingredients
  

Blackberry Mango Scones

  • cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • tbsp baking powder
  • ¾ cup butter (vegan or regular)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup dairy free buttermilk* (or regular)
  • ½ cup mangos chopped into ½-3/4 inch cubes (fresh or frozen)
  • ½ cup blackberries (fresh or frozen)

Blackberry Glaze

  • ½ cup blackberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 2 tsp granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • ¾-1 cup powdered sugar

Instructions
 

Blackberry Mango Scones

  • Make dairy free buttermilk, set aside.
  • Cut the mango into small cubes and set aside.
  • Line a baking tray with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  • Chop butter into small pieces and add to dry mixture. Using a pastry cutter or two forks, cut in the butter until it is mashed in and the consistency is crumbly.
  • Beat egg in a small bowl. Add egg, buttermilk, and vanilla to the dry ingredients and mix until just combined, being careful not to over-mix.
  • Gently fold in blackberries and mangos, again being careful not to over-mix.
  • Pour a little bit of flour (around ⅛ cup is usually good) onto a clean surface and spread the flour around. Place the dough on the surface. Gently form the dough into a circle, about 1 ¼ inch thick.
  • Using a bench scraper or knife, slice the dough into 6 triangle shape sections. Using the bench scraper or a spatula, carefully move the scones onto the lined baking tray, about 1 inch apart.
  • Preheat oven to 400F and put the scones into the fridge while the oven heats up, or about 10 minutes.
  • Bake for 18-21 minutes. Allow scones to cool completely before adding glaze.

Blackberry Glaze

  • In a small saucepan, add blackberries, granulated sugar, and lemon juice and cook over medium heat, stirring every couple minutes until combined.
  • Whisk in the cornstarch until combined.
  • Remove from heat. Add in the powdered sugar, ¼ cup at a time, whisking until fully combined. ¾ cup powdered sugar will yield a glaze that is more jam like, and has a more pronounced blackberry flavour. If you prefer a sweeter, thicker glaze with less blackberry flavour, add in more powdered sugar.
  • Drizzle on top of scones before serving.

Notes

*Dairy Free Buttermilk: to make dairy free buttermilk simply add ½ tbsp white vinegar or lemon juice to a ½ cup measuring cup and fill the rest of the cup with almond, oat, or any other plant-based milk
