Fete Bake – Blueberry and Almond Scones

If you want to get a bit messy in the kitchen, these are for you! I make them rather large which is great for a summer high tea or fete! Donna x 

 

Blueberry and Almond Scones
Serves 14
A brilliant way to celebrate summer! Just add cream and jam! I have made a huge batch but you can either make more by making them smaller or simple half the ingredients.
