This Cast Iron Skillet Lemon Blueberry Scone Recipe is perfect for a no fuss weekend brunch or tea time. Sweet and tart, this recipe is easy to put together, looks pretty in the cast iron frying pan and is perfect for summertime entertaining. I love summer. The recipes that you can make with fresh local produce are unlimited. Bean and I have a game that we play during the summer. We go to our local farmers stand and I tell her that we can get ANYTHING we want as long as the sign says LOCAL on it. Bean is having a field day right now because local strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, cherries, peaches and plums are all in season in BC. 

We have 10 pounds of blueberries in our fridge right now, so I figured it was time to do some more cast iron skillet baking

I recently played around making blueberry scones in the cast iron skillet. When The Hubs tried them he said “These are the best scones I’ve ever had! They are so moist!” 

It’s true, these scones are a bit moister than your average scone. If you like your scones a bit drier, take out the half cup of pulsed blueberries. 


Cast Iron Skillet Lemon Blueberry Scone Recipe:

Ingredients for scones:

  • 2 cups unbleached flour
  • 2 tsps baking powder
  • 3 tbs sugar + 1 tablespoon for sprinkling on top
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup of cold butter
  • 1 cup fresh whole blueberries
  • 1/2 cup fresh chopped up/pulsed blueberries (omit the chopped up blueberries if you prefer a drier scone)
  • zest of one lemon
  • 1 cup milk
  • dash of vanilla

Ingredients for Lemon Glaze

  • `1/2 cup powdered sugar

This Cast Iron Skillet Lemon Blueberry Scone Recipe is perfect for a no fuss weekend brunch or tea time. Sweet and tart, this recipe is easy to put together, looks pretty in the cast iron frying pan and is perfect for summertime entertaining.

I make these scones in my food processor. You can also make them by hand if you prefer.

  • Preheat your oven to 375 F.
  • Sift flour, baking powder, sugar and salt and pour into your food processor.
  • Chop butter into small pieces then add to your food processor. Pulse until dough is crumbly. (Alternatively you can mix the butter in by hand, pinching it into the dough until the dough becomes crumbly. 
  • Add 1/2 cup of blueberries and pulse (Alternatively you can chop the blueberries and mix them in by hand.)
  • Remove the blade from your food processor and add in your whole blueberries and lemon zest. Fold the blueberries into the dough gently so as not to squish them. 
  • Make a hole in the center of your dough and add the milk. Stir until incorporated making sure to not overwork your dough. You can also put the dough on your work surface to make sure your ingredients are all incorporated.
  • Press your scone dough into your cast iron skillet. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of sugar on top.
  • Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes or until the top is golden and the scone is cooked through. 
  • While your scones are cooking mix together powdered sugar and lemon juice to make a glaze. 
  • When your scone is done cooking, let it sit for 5-10 minutes then cut into pie shaped wedges. Serve with glaze on top. 
  • Enjoy!

    1. LOL. Oh Margarita you’re comment just gave me a good chuckle. Yes! I love baking in my cast iron skillet. And Yes! Let’s be best friends. πŸ˜‰ I hope you’ll come back for more cast iron recipes.

      Best Wishes,


    1. Awww. Thanks Jennifer. You are too kind. It’s a pretty yummy recipe.

      Thank you for visiting!


  1. This looks awesome. I should use my cast iron skillet more, but I always severely limit what I put in it cause washing isn’t something that you do with cast iron so much and I worry about cross contamination with my son’s food allergies. BUT… that’s my own problem. Maybe I just need a second one… πŸ˜€

    1. Hi Anne,

      Yes! Get a second one. Use it just for baking. A foodie like you needs to have a cast iron skillet to bake in. πŸ™‚

      Thank you for visiting!


  2. Ok, thats it! I am going out and buying a cast iron skillet. If I never use it again after making those cinnamon rolls, it will have been worth it.

    1. LOL Thank you Jaymi! There are SO MANY great baking recipes for your cast iron skillet. It’s definitely a kitchen essential to invest some time into. Pick one up from a garage sale or thrift store and refurbish it. I’m going to share a post on how to refurbish them in the fall after the hot weather is behind us.

      Thank you for visiting!


  3. Until I had clicked through to the post, I thought the blueberry recipe was awesome…now I see you have more than one delicious looking recipe. Wow! The skillet recipes all look good!

    1. Awww, thanks Pam. You just made my day. I hope you have fun exploring cast iron baking!

      Thank you for visiting!


  4. Wow this looks delicious!! Have you tried with any other types of flour? I love lemon flavoured anything!

    1. Hi Paula,

      I’ve only tried it with unbleached flour but I’m sure it could be adapted to other kinds of flour as well. If you try it with another type of flour you’ll have to let me know how it turns out.

      Best Wishes,


  5. You’ve inspired me to get a cast iron and I found one at a thrift nearby and my MIL gave me one! Can’t wait to try these!! Did you end up posting how you cleaned or “seasoned” your vintage cast iron?

    1. Hi Anne,

      I haven’t done a post on how to clean and reseason our cast iron yet. I was planning on doing it this fall when the weather is cooler on a few new Cast Iron pans we’ve bought. We ran our cast iron through a self cleaning cycle on our oven and then reseasoned it. Keep an eye out for it!

      Best Wishes,


  6. Hi, this looks amazing! I want to make it this weekend, what size skillet did you use? Thanks!

    1. Hi Maura,

      Great question. My frying pans are 10.5 inches. πŸ™‚

      Thank you for visiting!


  7. WOW! your food photos are FANTASTIC . . . YUM YUM YUM is all I can think of as I scrolled down through several “Cast Iron Skillet” recipes for breakfast! We have 2 cast iron skillets, one is square & other is round, but actually we don’t use them often. I plan to try the Lemon Blueberry Scone recipe on the weekend. My husband has a delicious Irish scone recipe from SAVEUR magazine that he’s used for about 15 years. So we’ll sample your scone recipe & compare. Maybe try a couple other recipes
    too. I agree with Paula H: LOVE anything with lemon. Thanks so much for posting all these recipes. Sarah Helene in Minneapolis

  8. I like that these may be moister than the average scone…I usually compensate for that with butter, but getting that moistness from blueberries sounds a bit healthier. Thanks!

    1. Thank you so much for visiting Doug. You’ll have to let me know what you think when you try them!

      Best Wishes,


  9. About how many servings does the lemon blueberry scone make?

    1. Hi Lizzy,

      I like cutting mine into 8 pieces the way you would a pie. You could certainly cut it into more or less though. πŸ™‚

      Thank you for visiting.


  10. Elisabeth says:

    is it all right if I use bleached and enriched flour?!??

    1. Hi Elisabeth,

      Yes that should work fine!

      Thank you for visiting.


  11. Victoria Ess says:

    All of these recipes look divine! I see that I have been under-utilizing my cast-iron skillet!

  12. now this in one to try!!!!!!!!!!!!! something about the lemon/blueberry flavor combo that’s absolutely perfect!

  13. Cheryl MacPhail says:

    What great looking recipes!! I have been wanting to use mt cast iron pan for more and now that it is blueberry season I think I just have to try this one!!

  14. I made this today and it is absolutely delicious. Although, I admit that I decided to splurge and make double the glaze, but my 2nd lemon was large and produced so much juice that I really ended up almost tripling the glaze. And, I poured all of it over! (uhhhh……yeah) My husband took one bite and said, “This is to die for!” Ok, so it was worth it. We will just save it for special occasions πŸ™‚ Used gluten free flour. More cooling time will bring out more flavor, if you are willing to wait.

    1. Hi Cara!

      You just made my day! Thank you so much for visiting, trying out my recipe and for leaving a comment that you tried it! Have a wonderful week.

      Best Wishes,
