Blueberry Buttermilk Biscuits are an old-fashioned recipe similar to a British scone. They are not overly sweet and taste delicious topped with a lemon glaze!


  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 2/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly oil a cast iron skillet and place in the oven to preheat.
  2. In a large bowl mix flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. 
  3. Cut butter into slices and mix by handinto the dry mixture until crumbly and even.
  4. Pour in buttermilk and mix with a spoon.
  5. Gently fold in blueberries.
  6. Roll dough out on a floured surface, add more flour if necessary to make the dough less sticky. Do not add more than necessary to avoid drying out the biscuits.
  7. Use a biscuit cutter or top of a glass to cut biscuits and place in the preheated skillet.
  8. Bake biscuits 30 minutes or until golden brown.
  9. Meanwhile, in a small bowl mix powdered sugar, heavy cream, vanilla, lemon juice and cinnamon and whisk until smooth.
