Happy Monday! Olivia here again. I’d like to share a quick and easy scone recipe that makes the most of the summer fruit available to us.

These scones were inspired by another recipe of Dad’s, his Apricot Coconut Scones. I love that particular recipe, and noticed a few comments asking about substituting fresh fruit instead of dried.

With that in mind, I had some fresh peaches on hand as well as a pint of blueberries, so I decided to try it out with fresh fruit.

The coconut flavour really complements the fruit, making for a nutty, tender vanilla scone with bursts of peach and blueberry. Be sure to be extra gentle when mixing in the fruit for best results.

Fresh or frozen peaches both work well in this simple recipe idea.

I had these ready in only about half an hour. If you’re looking for a simple but flavourful scone, this recipe is a great choice. I’m sure they would be a welcome addition to any brunch or cup of afternoon tea.

Blueberry Peach Coconut Scones. Elegant little scones featuring the best of fresh summer produce and delicate coconut flavour. Perfect for brunch or an afternoon tea.

Ingredients

  • 1 2/3 cups flour
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 4 tbsp very cold butter
  • 1/3 cup dried unsweetened coconut
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 small peaches, pitted and diced
  • 1/2 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen

Instructions

      1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
      2. In a food processor, or simply in a bowl, pulse together flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.
      3. Add cold butter and 1/3 cup coconut. Pulse just until mixture resembles a coarse meal. (If you're not using a food processor, rub the butter between your fingers into the flour and coconut mixture.)
      4. Transfer mixture to a large bowl. Gently stir in the blueberries and diced peaches.
      5. Whisk together the milk, egg and vanilla. Reserve a few teaspoons of this liquid to brush on top of the scones before baking.
      6. Add the liquid to the dry ingredients. Quickly, but very gently, stir with a wooden spoon until a soft dough forms.
      7. Turn the soft dough out onto a well-floured cutting board. Lightly sprinkle the top of the dough with flour and just using your hands, form the dough into a round about ¾ of an inch thick.
      8. Using a 1½ inch biscuit cutter, cut out your scones and place them about 2 inches apart on a parchment-lined aluminum baking sheet.
      9. Re-roll the scraps and cut out the rest of the scones. Brush the tops of all the scones with the reserved milk and egg liquid.
      10. Bake the scones for about 12-15 minutes or until the tops of the scones are lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack.

Notes

The easiest way to achieve light, fluffy scones is to use very cold butter, work quickly, and don't over-mix your dough. These three tips really help to yield perfect scones.

Hi, These sound like what I want to make, but without the coconut. Would it be ok without, or would the recipe need adjusting? Thanks!
