Hello everyone! I’m Jackie from The Seaside Baker and I am so excited to be a new contributor here on Princess Pinky Girl! I am a huge fan of baking and cooking with the season’s finest produce and thus bring you these Blackberry Lime Scones.
If you are looking for an easy, impressive, and delicious treat, these scones are it. Loaded with fresh and juicy blackberries, these scones taste just as good as they look. The blackberries release their juices while baking creating a beautiful almost marbled effect in the scone.
Scones are one of those things that everyone loves, and non-bakers think take forever to bake, which in fact, they do not. Scones are incredibly easy to make and only take about 30 minutes from start to finish. If you have a nifty food processor, it takes even less time! The beauty about this recipe is that you can substitute any berry or fruit, or even omit the fruit for a Starbucks like vanilla scone.
Blackberry and lime is one of my favorite flavor combinations ever. It combines the juiciness and subtle sweetness of the blackberry with the tanginess of the lime. It creates a cool and refreshing bite that pairs perfectly with the buttery base of the scone. It is also a great flavor combination for savory dishes such as salmon or chicken.
So, if you are looking for the perfect treat for your next Spring inspired brunch, make these scones! They will be a complete hit! For more Blackberry Lime deserts or scones, check out our recipes below! Enjoy!
