Blueberry Orange Scone

Happy New Year Guys!!! Hope you had a wonderful New Year’s eve. So here I am beginning my new year and sharing my first recipe of 2019, and it’s gotta be something sweet. Though I have kept in mind the health part, you’ll see that in the ingredients. 

Baking has become my new favourite and I keep trying new recipes which involves it. Blueberry Scones are always a delight to enjoy in the breakfast and especially during winters. I have added a bit of orange zest to it, to have that bitter-tangy touch.

These are prepared with whole wheat flour (a healthier version), you can try with all-purpose flour as well.
