Easy Strawberry Scones

These strawberry scones came about because I wanted to use up two leftover ingredients from Mother’s Day brunch.

We had an abundance of strawberries and more whipped cream left over than I should eat by the bowlful. I added two more ingredients to that lovely start and this strawberry scones recipe was created!

These strawberry scones couldn’t be easier. It’s as easy as these blueberry scones. You just drop spoonfuls (big spoonfuls!) of dough onto your baking sheet; you don’t need to cut in butter, no rolling pin needed.

Strawberry Scone Ingredients

Woot, woot! You only need 4 ingredients for these strawberry scones:

  • Strawberries
  • Self-rising flour
  • Sugar
  • Whipping cream

How to Make Strawberry Scones

Mix the self-rising flour, sugar, and strawberries together in a bowl.  Pour the whipping cream into the dry ingredients. Stir gently, drop the scone batter onto baking sheets, and bake.

The prep work for this strawberry scones recipe takes about 5 minutes, and baking time is 12-15 minutes, so you could even make these scones on a weekday morning!

This fruit scones recipe only calls for a tiny bit of sugar – 1 tablespoon. The strawberry scones still have lots of flavor and are rich tasting and fluffy. If you like your scones on the sweeter side, feel free to use ¼ cup of sugar instead of 1 tablespoon.

A note about the strawberries:

I like to coarse chop the strawberries for this recipe.

I LOVE getting a big piece of strawberry when I bite into a scone. Most of the strawberries I simply cut in half.

It can be slightly trickier to tell that the scones are fully done when you keep your fruit pieces bigger. The other option is to chop up the berries smaller – say 4-6 pieces per berry. That way makes sure all the pockets around the fruit cook evenly. Your choice!

A note about the scone batter:

Because we are using a very hot oven to bake these strawberry scones, be careful of what you drop the batter onto. Parchment paper is usually temperature rated to 450 F and we are baking hotter than that so if you are going to use parchment, use it with caution and check on the scones often.

I don’t find these strawberry scones to stick if you drop the batter right onto the baking tray. I use a spatula and they came right off, but it will depend on the stickiness of your baking sheet. You can also use a small amount of cooking spray.

Now let’s bake these scones!
