An easy recipe for Huckleberry Scones. This recipe will be your go-to scone recipe. Swap the huckleberries for other fruit or omit completely for a delicious plain scone.
I am a sucker for scones. If you follow along on this blog, you know I make sweet scones, savory scones…I just love scones! So when I recently got word that Sweetly Serendipity was my blog for Secret Recipe Club, I was stoked. I mean, how could you not have a fantastic scone recipe with a blog name like that? Right? Well, Taryn’s blog is not just this sweet scone recipe, she has pages and pages of deliciousness. It was really hard to choose just one recipe to make! But, I landed on her Black Cherry Scones and decided to swap out the cherries for Huckleberries. This is a great base recipe that you could change up with the fruit seasons. I highly recommend it.
Making scones when it’s a crisp cool day outside just seems right to me. I like my scones to be a little more on the moist side and far less on the chip your front tooth hard side like some bakeries. Make sure you check out the links below for some other amazingly delicious scone recipes. One of my all-time favorites are the Cinnamon Rasin scones. Nom!
