Blueberry Banana Sourdough Scones with Lemon Glaze

Blueberry Banana Sourdough Scones with Lemon Glaze are delicious. Made with sourdough starter, mashed bananas and fresh blueberries. The scones are topped with almonds and a lemon glaze. There are a lot of flavors in these scones but that’s what makes them so delicious. Fresh blueberries add freshness. The sourdough starter adds that slight tang all sourdough lovers love.

Lemon Glaze and Almonds

A light, lemony glaze tops these already delightful scones. With just a hint of sweetness and tangy flavor from the sourdough. The sliced almonds add a slight crunch and the almonds look nice sitting on top of the scones. Blueberry Banana Sourdough Scones with Lemon Glaze are super delicious with tons of flavor.

Scones

Scones are super simple to make and can be made in just about any flavor combinations. My favorite ways to make scones is with fresh or dried fruit. Even though I have been experimenting with the savory scone versions also. Savory scones are super with stew and/or stews. They can also be used in place of a roll or bun in sandwiches. With so many different ways to make scones, you could make a different scone for every day of the year!

Recipe Note:
This recipe is slightly adapted from the wonderful blog Life on Cloake Hill. I found this blog in my quest to find a scone that used sourdough and blueberries in the recipe. While there, I was amazed at the amount of scone recipes I found  on their blog. Many, if not all of them, were definitely worth trying. Stop by Life on Cloake Hill and check it out. Tell them Lynn sent you:)
