Fresh Corn Scones with a hint of lime and cinnamon! These light and fluffy scones are perfect for breakfast or an afternoon tea snack.
We can never have too many scone recipes, right? I’ve mentioned before that I worked at a British Tea Shop (here in the US) for 7 years. I made dozens and dozens of scones every week. Between my work at the tea shop, and scones I’ve made for family and friends, at this point in my life I’ve baked, literally, tens of thousands of scones.
When I worked at the tea shop we had a few flavors that were always on the menu; plain, raisin, lemon and cherry/almond scones. Each week I would create a special flavor, usually something seasonal.
I love baking with seasonal produce, both fruits and vegetables. We’ve been getting a bunch of fabulous super-sweet corn in our farm share the last few weeks. No matter how much corn we get, it’s never too much. Besides throwing it on the grill and eating it, I like to make corn salad, corn chowder and Sweet Corn Ice Cream (trust me on that one!). Fresh summer corn is wonderful in both savory and sweet dishes.
I’ve been noodling around with the idea of a fresh corn scone for a while. I just had to decide if I wanted to go sweet or savory. I could have lowered the sugar a bit and added basil, onion and other savory flavors to make a savory corn scone. But I decided to go sweet and used lime, cinnamon and a little cornmeal to highlight the fresh corn flavors.
My husband and I ate the scones with Mascarpone Cheese (leftover from my Tiramisu Ice Cream Cake recipe testing) and homemade Blueberry Preserves. I absolutely love corn and blueberries together so this was a great combination.
