Blueberry buttermilk scones

A WORD FROM THE CHEF
There are few things an Irish person takes as seriously as scones. Joe.ie even created 'The Great Scone Map' based on how people in Ireland and the UK pronounce the word scone. Is it scone or scon? These Blueberry Buttermilk Scones Recipe create light, buttery soft scones with a crunchy exterior and added fruity bursts of Blueberry. Perfect with butter or jam and/or whipped cream.
450 grams plain flour
120 grams caster sugar
10 grams baking powder
120 grams butter soft, room temp
Two whole eggs
200 grams blueberries, frozen
Egg wash (one egg lightly whisked with one tablespoon of milk)
Preheat oven to 200°c (400°f), or 190°c (380°f) if fan assisted.
Grease and line two flat baking trays. Prepare the egg wash by mixing together one egg and a tablespoon of milk. Weigh out all the ingredients before you start mixing the dough.
In a large mixing bowl, add the flour, sugar and baking powder.
Next add the soft butter and with your hands, rub it together with the flour until it resembles breadcrumbs.
Next add the eggs and buttermilk and mix until just barely combined (bits of flour on the bottom of the bowl is fine).
Scrape out all the dough to a lightly floured surface and pat down slightly.
Sprinkle half of the frozen blueberries onto the dough. Fold the dough up, one third at a time, as if laminating puff pastry.
Roll out the dough again and repeat the last step.
Roll out dough to cutting size. You want them very thick, almost the same height as the pastry cutter.
Lightly flour the pastry cutter and cut the scones out and place them on flat baking trays with plenty of space in between.
Gently press together any leftover dough and cut to use up all the dough, you should get about nine scones.
Egg wash the top of the scones lightly and bake for 25-30 minutes, ensuring you turn the tray around halfway through cooking.
