  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup cold butter
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 3/4 - 1 cup berries I used fresh blue and black berries
  • milk for brushing tops
  • sanding sugar for sprinkling


  1. Preheat oven to 375 F.
  2. Combine both flours, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. With a pastry blender (or fork) cut in cold butter until crumbly. Make a well in the center.
  3. In a small bowl beat egg until frothy. Add milk. Pour into well and stir everything with a fork to make a soft dough.
  4. Flour a surface and turn the dough out on it. Place berries on and carefully knead 8 to 10 times. Watch out not to crush the berries. Divide into 2 equal parts and form each into a 6 inch (15 cm) disk. Cut each circle into 6 wedges.
  5. Grease a baking sheet and place scones on it. Brush the tops with milk and sprinkle with sanding sugar.
  6. Bake for about 15 minutes until the scones have risen and are slightly browned.
