Blueberry Crème Fraîche Scones

Blueberry Crème Fraîche Scones Recipe | JustOneCookbook.com

As I mentioned in my previous post, I wanted to share a recipe using leftover Crème Fraîche from the Kale Soup. I don’t really have any recipes on hand to use up Crème Fraîche, so on my way to drop off my children at schools I had asked my husband to search for a recipe (ahem, that’s called a multi-tasking, right?). He then responded with this Blueberry Crème Fraîche Scones recipe.

Blueberry Creme Fraiche Scones | JustOneCookbook.com
Most blueberry scone recipes require some heavy cream or sour cream, but I’d never seen one that required Crème Fraîche before. I thought I should give it a try, so I did. They weren’t professionally done because this was my very first attempt making homemade scones from scratch. But my children and I liked them and we had a nice snack time (tea time for me).

After my first trial, I bought a dough blender so I’m now better equipped and will experiment more to create the perfect scone recipe. These scones are delicious and the recipe is very easy to follow. If you have leftover Crème Fraîche like I did, try making some homemade scone for afternoon tea time or breakfast. Enjoy!

Blueberry Crème Fraîche Scones
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 12 pieces
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 6 Tbsp. (3/4 stick) chilled unsalted butter
  • 1 ½ cup blueberries (picture shows 2 cups, but I just needed 1 ½ cup)
  • 1 egg plus 1 yolk
  • 7.5 oz. crème fraîche
  • 1½ tsp. vanilla extract
  • Sugar (demerara/turbinado sugar) for sprinkling (I did not have it today)
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl to blend.
  3. Cut butter into small pieces.
  4. Add the butter in the bowl and rub in butter with fingertips until mixture resembles fine meal.
  5. Whisk eggs, crème fraîche and vanilla.
  6. Gently stir crème fraîche mixture into flour mixture (dough will be very moist).
  7. Add the blueberries and mix well.
  8. Turn dough out onto generously floured work surface. Divide dough in half. Press each half into 6-inch round about ½ inch thick. Cut each round into 6 wedges.
  9. Transfer wedges to baking sheet, spacing 1 inch apart. Generously sprinkle sugar on top.
  10. Bake scones until pale golden and toothpick inserted into center comes out clean, about 25 minutes. Serve scones warm or at room temperature.

  • Jeannie September 11, 2012, 10:34 pm

    THis is the first time I see scones with creme fraiche too, and yours are choked with blueberries! Yummy!

  • Daisy@Nevertoosweet September 11, 2012, 11:06 pm

    YAY :) it’s like you read my mind again Nami ~ I just bought a box of blueberries and was thinking if i should make something or just eat them with yoghurt! Think i’m gonna have to make these scones instead hehe

  • hui September 11, 2012, 11:15 pm

    ooh.. this looks delish ^^ your scones must taste rich and moist with the addition of creme fraiche! i like ^^

  • Mel September 11, 2012, 11:20 pm

    I happened to love scones very much! It has been so long I have not made it and looking at yours has made me dig out my craving again. I know this must be super delicious

  • peachkins September 12, 2012, 2:16 am

    I love scones and I love that plate and mug!!! Stunning photos, Nami!

  • Medeja September 12, 2012, 2:40 am

    Scones with blueberries look so yummy! Great thing for breakfast!

  • Ellena | Cuisines Paradise September 12, 2012, 3:01 am

    Cool! Adding “creme fraiche” in Scones is indeed something new. Will try this if i can find creme fraiche in supermarket here :)

  • Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella September 12, 2012, 3:24 am

    Hehe how cute and well done on hubby finding this recipe! Yes that’s definitely multi tasking in the best way ;)

  • Vicki Bensinger September 12, 2012, 4:10 am

    Nami I think your scones look beautiful and so full of blueberries. This recipe sounds yummy with the Creme fraiche. Looks like your hubby did a great job researching. I will save this recipe to try some Sunday morning.

  • Eri September 12, 2012, 4:14 am

    I will try your recipe Nami but using full fat yogurt instead of creme fraiche. I always have yogurt handy. Hugs and Kisses my friend!

  • Belinda @zomppa September 12, 2012, 4:22 am

    From kale soup to scones…loving the flexibility to maximize ingredients!

  • Choc Chip Uru September 12, 2012, 4:59 am

    Your scones are ridiculously drool worthy! :D

  • The Mom Chef ~ Taking on Magazines One Recipe at a Time September 12, 2012, 5:30 am

    I adore scones! One of my favorite treats to have with a cup of coffee. Yours turned out absolutely perfect. Congrats to your husband for finding such an awesome recipe.

  • Elizabeth@ Food Ramblings September 12, 2012, 6:24 am

    Blueberry scones are my favorite- these look awesome!!

  • Lan | angry asian September 12, 2012, 6:45 am

    lovely lovely lovely LOVELY! i love scones (tho i typically use full fat coconut milk) and now it’s the kind of weather that calls for afternoon tea and a scone or two.

  • Ramona September 12, 2012, 6:48 am

    These scones look magnificent!! I can tell they are flaky, tender and bursting with blueberry flavor. I love the pretty heart plate and cup you accented your photo with as well. Where do you keep all your food props? My husband built me two pantry cupboards and I’m still running out of room. LOL! Great job Nami! :)

  • Stephanie September 12, 2012, 6:57 am

    You’ve inspired me to make scones! hehe Asking your husband to search for a recipe is win-win. You don’t have to search for one and save time and he gets to choose what you make!

  • Giulietta | Alterkitchen September 12, 2012, 7:08 am

    Never made (or ate) scones in my, but I think that maybe it’s time! I’d love them with a cup of tea!!

  • Elizabeth @Mango_Queen September 12, 2012, 7:38 am

    Oh my, those blueberries melting within the buttery scones are killing me. I’m getting hungry reading this post. Must go make this recipe and a good pot of coffee. Coffee or tea time anytime is good with these homemade scones. Thanks for sharing, Nami!

  • Simply Gourmet Photography September 12, 2012, 7:40 am

    We love blueberry muffins and now it looks like we will love scones too! Great post Nami.

  • Evelyne@cheapethniceatz September 12, 2012, 7:54 am

    Scones are such a treat for me and with blueberries these are a total winner. Crème fraiche is the best too, been making my own. Good suggestion from hubby ;-)

  • Jill Colonna September 12, 2012, 7:54 am

    What a great idea, Nami. Although in our house, crème fraîche is constantly in our fridge since we love it so much in sauces etc. It has been ages since I’ve made scones so you’ve inspired me to get baking them again! They look super.

  • Hannah September 12, 2012, 7:57 am

    Such lovely scones, Nami! Rich and studded with berries…just the way I like them. :)

  • Asmita September 12, 2012, 8:13 am

    Beautiful Nami,
    The scones look delicious! Perfect with my morning and afternoon “Chai”.

  • Anna @ Crunchy Creamy Sweet September 12, 2012, 8:18 am

    I knew you can bake up delicious stuff, Nami! These scones look scrumptious! I will have to remember this recipe next time I have leftover creme fraiche.

  • Candice September 12, 2012, 8:40 am

    Nami, these scones look AMAZING! I bet the scones tasted delicious too! :)
    I love the heart cup and plate. What is a dough blender?


  • A_Boleyn September 12, 2012, 8:54 am

    I love your scones. I’ve never made them using blueberries and the final pictures of the juicy goodness oozing out is very tempting. I bet they’re great with a hot cup of tea. :)

  • Muna Kenny September 12, 2012, 8:59 am

    What a nice way to start the morning! Nami, these scones look delicious :)

  • Rosa September 12, 2012, 9:59 am

    Great scones! A fruity teatime treat which I’d love to taste…



  • Mi Vida en un Dulce September 12, 2012, 11:35 am

    So Nami can bake..!!! And she did a great job. I never saw a scone recipe with creme fraiche, but sounds wonderful.

  • Sissi September 12, 2012, 11:35 am

    Nami, you are an excellent baker (once more, but I think I have to repeat it before finally you admit you excel at whatever you start doing in the kitchen). I have never tasted or prepared scones, but these look fabulous.
    I’m in awe of your return to the three posts a week. You are simply the best!

  • Jenn and Seth September 12, 2012, 12:20 pm

    i just love all the blueberries in here! and the creme fraiche was an inspired touch, definitely bookmarking this!

  • Katerina September 12, 2012, 1:10 pm

    Mmm, these scones look so inviting Nami! I bet they were delicious straight out of the oven!

  • kitchenriffs September 12, 2012, 2:58 pm

    I love scones, and we hardly ever have them – I have no idea why not. Blueberries go so well in anything baked. What a great way to use your creme fraiche! Really like the second picture – you used a longish telephoto lens, yes? Love the way things look – I haven’t used that technique in ages – thanks for reminding me!

  • Rowena @ Apron and Sneakers September 12, 2012, 3:05 pm

    Well, I would love to have those for breakfast or tea time, whatever time of the day really, as long as they are in my mouth! The blueberries are too inviting. I never tried making scones. Oh dear. Maybe it’s about time for me too.

  • Bam's Kitchen September 12, 2012, 3:47 pm

    Nami-san, I would love one of your delicious scones hot out of the oven. Yum and those heart dishes are just so adorable. Love you attention to detail and the great directions for this recipe. Take care, bAM

  • Sandra September 12, 2012, 3:54 pm

    These look great Nami! This could be a snack or a great treat for breakfast or brunch. I’m looking forward to seeing what other versions you come up.

  • Holly | Beyond Kimchee September 12, 2012, 4:26 pm

    Very nice! I think a cup of tea with these scones would be perfect on one of those quiet weekends. I will save the recipe to try myself soon.

  • yummychunklet September 12, 2012, 5:06 pm

    I bet these were even more delectable because they had creme fraiche!

  • Juliana September 12, 2012, 5:32 pm

    Wow Nami, your blueberry scones look fabulous and they sure must taste so rich with the crème fraîche…I would love to have one for tomorrow breakfast :)
    Hope you are having a great week my dear!

  • mjskit September 12, 2012, 7:09 pm

    Chowhound is a great source for recipes and information! What a great recipe and as always, you made some gorgeous scones! All those blueberries – bet they burst in the mouth and made these scones so very juicy!

  • Christina @ Sweet Pea's Kitchen September 12, 2012, 7:34 pm

    I absolutely love scones. These look fabulous Nami! I’m loving the addition of creme fraiche! :)

  • Kristi Rimkus September 12, 2012, 7:53 pm

    I’d be afraid to send my husband on a recipe search – he’s not much of a cook. Your husband did a terrific job. This recipe sounds amazing and looks just as good.

  • Chung-Ah | Damn Delicious September 12, 2012, 8:31 pm

    I never get to bake with creme fraiche! This is the perfect opportunity to use it because I LOVE scones. I don’t know why but the crumbly-soft scone texture gets to me all the time!

  • Roxana | Roxana's Home Baking September 12, 2012, 8:34 pm

    I love making scones and these will be getting out of my oven very soon, I just have to buy some creme fraiche. Have never made scones with creme fraiche, thanks for sharing Nami

  • Balvinder September 12, 2012, 9:00 pm

    They look beautiful! You have given me a wonderful idea of using my creme fraiche.

  • Carolyn Jung September 12, 2012, 9:06 pm

    For someone who says they don’t bake (LOL), your baked good sure look magnificent. ;)

  • Marina@Picnic at Marina September 12, 2012, 9:18 pm

    Nami, those scones are lovely! I also love the presentation: so romantic and very cute… :)

  • Sanjeeta KK September 12, 2012, 9:22 pm

    Such colorful and lively clicks, Nami! Your pictures make the scones stand out of the screen. Lovely.

  • Sharon | Chinese Soup Pot September 12, 2012, 10:39 pm

    This seems like an easy recipe. Although I am not a fan of scones, I do love blueberries! And I have to say that your scones turned out very nicely golden brown. They look very nice!

  • Andrea September 12, 2012, 11:21 pm

    Nami, what a perfect treat for that afternoon cup of tea – I love blueberries and I love scones so this recipe sounds just wonderful to me. And if you served one of your Blueberry Scones to me on that pretty plate, I would certainly eat it right away! Such beautiful photography – love the colors!

    Hope you are feeling much better now!

  • Reem | Simply Reem September 12, 2012, 11:32 pm

    I have been thinking of making scones for a long time, just mere laziness…
    Your’s look so delicious Nami, I need to come out of my lazy cave and bake some of these babies!!!
    Hope you are having a wonderful week so far!!
    talk to you soon Gal!

  • Baker Street September 13, 2012, 12:30 am

    Heh. Multitasking is right! I like the idea of creme fraiche being used in scones. These berrilicious treats would be the perfect breakfast treat. :)

  • Mandy - The Complete Cook Book September 13, 2012, 1:13 am

    Wow, what decadent scones Nami – scrumptious!
    :-) Mandy

  • Blackswan September 13, 2012, 3:24 am

    Gosh, so much blueberries in the scones! I’m sold!! I’m sure they’re gone in seconds.

  • Leanne @ Healthful Pursuit September 13, 2012, 3:51 am

    Wow, Nami… I love your blog! I’m so happy that Kankana introduced us. I have to say, I’ve been quite intimidated by Japanese cooking. It always felt like the ingredients were challenging to find, the directions were complicated, or that I couldn’t make the items fit my diet. You’ve done a fabulous job here! Just subscribed. Can’t wait to see what you come up with next!

  • Hotly Spiced September 13, 2012, 4:00 am

    I love scones Nami but I have never cooked them with blueberries or creme fraiche. They look so gorgeous and colourful and I bet they have amazing flavour. Great twist on the typical scone xx

  • Soni September 13, 2012, 6:06 am

    I’ve never tried making scones before but I absolutely love them :)Love the look and texture in your scones and with the lovely blueberries in there they must have tasted delish!!!

  • claire @ the realistic nutritionist September 13, 2012, 6:55 am

    CREME FRAICHE? IN A SCONE? How incredible!

  • Jenny September 13, 2012, 7:50 am

    Oh those look lovely. I love scones. My kids often made cheese scones with their dear grandmother (just cheddar cheese in the mix … doh – I don’t bake much. You must have a HUGE kitchen to accommodate all your gadgets, Nami! Love to see a pic sometime : )

  • Ashley - baker by nature September 13, 2012, 9:46 am

    These look great, nami! I’ve been obsessed with making scones lately, and will definitely try adding creme fraiche next time!

  • Patty September 13, 2012, 10:50 am

    Hi Nami! Your blueberry scones look professionally baked to me:-)
    I love that you asked your husband to search for a recipe- I am definitely trying that approach with mine and will be so curious to see what he come up with:-) This is such a unique recipe, pretty with the blueberry color and lovely photos of your works of art!

  • Lynna September 13, 2012, 12:57 pm

    I love basically anything with blueberries in them!

    I’m not much of a scone fan, but I’ll definitely have some of these!

  • The Café Sucré Farine September 13, 2012, 1:09 pm

    Nami, I love scones and these look amazing. I also love creme fraiche and find it sort of crazy that it’s so hard to find and expensive here. Love your presentation, so pretty!

  • Kristy September 13, 2012, 1:15 pm

    I have never made homemade scones either Nami, and I definitely want to. This looks like a great recipe and I always seem to have leftover creme fraiche!

  • nipponnin September 13, 2012, 3:28 pm


  • Delishhh September 13, 2012, 3:49 pm

    Love scones and these are just gorgeous!

  • Laura @ Family Spice September 13, 2012, 6:01 pm

  • torviewtoronto September 13, 2012, 6:03 pm

    beautifully done scones

  • Nazneen | Coffee and Crumpets September 13, 2012, 6:59 pm

    Good job with the scones! They look mighty delicious! I made some just yesterday, just plain ones.

    I will have to try using creme fraiche next time, I usually use heavy cream.
    Keep practising the baking and you will be an expert in no time!

    Nazneen xx

  • Stephanie @ Eat. Drink. Love. September 13, 2012, 7:50 pm

    These scones are perfection, Nami! I have never baked with creme fraiche!

  • Sandra's Easy Cooking September 14, 2012, 4:25 am

    Those Scones look FANTASTIC! Love the blueberry in them…will try these soon!
    Happy Friday, Nami! I hope that you are healed by now!

  • Kate from Scratch September 14, 2012, 6:12 am

    Lovely scones, Nami! I love the blueberries.

  • ATasteOfMadness September 14, 2012, 6:21 am

    Holy moly! I have no words, this looks great! I love scones of every shape and form, but I have never made it with blueberries before.

  • Kankana September 14, 2012, 11:47 am

    Will you believe if I say I never had scone till date! Funny right :) Seriously I need to bake some soon!

  • Yelena September 14, 2012, 2:57 pm

    Yes, tomorrow is Saturday, so it’s perfect time for baking some scones for breakfast! Your recipe is very unique, and I liked how your husband helped you to search for it.-)

  • Alice September 15, 2012, 5:19 am

    Hi Nami, this looks wonderful for bfast!
    i always love scones and additional blueberries only makes them perfect
    The usage of creme fraiche is interesting, I should give it a try

  • Valerie Brunmeier September 15, 2012, 1:44 pm

    These scones look like they have just the right texture and consistency to me. Yum! I will save this one for a baking day.

  • Shirley September 16, 2012, 10:56 am

    These look great! I’ve never thought of using creme fraiche in scones, and I’m intrigued about their taste.

  • Kate@Diethood September 16, 2012, 11:28 am

    Oh nice! I love scones, but have never tried one with blueberries or creme fraiche…that sounds yummylicious!!

  • Martyna @ Wholesome Cook September 16, 2012, 6:32 pm

    Delicious looking scones! Blueberries make everything better!

  • Raymund September 17, 2012, 12:35 am

    Looks who’s baking now, I am impressed and your scones looks moist, love it

  • Sylvia@Peaches and Donuts September 17, 2012, 1:23 pm

    I love the blueberries are bursting out of your scones! Makes it all the more yummy!

    • Sylvia@Peaches and Donuts September 17, 2012, 1:27 pm

      Sorry, i mean…I’ve love how the blueberries are bursting out of your scones. was typing a little too fast just now. :P

  • ray September 19, 2012, 7:50 pm

    My kids would love eating these scones, Nami. And what snack? They will feast on these scones in one sitting. Haha! Thank you, Nami!

  • Food Jaunts September 22, 2012, 8:14 am

    I love scones. I usually go for the more ‘desserty’ versions (hello chocolate chip!) but I could definitely get behind a great blueberry version.

  • Yanagi August 22, 2013, 6:35 am

    Just made these for breakfast! I didn’t have cream fraiche so I substituted the 7.5 oz of it with 1/2 half and half, 1/4 sour cream, and 1/4 plain yogurt for a total of 7.5 oz of “not cream fraiche, but close enough”. ;3 I also used white whole wheat flour and brown sugar to make it a bit healthier.
    Over all, they were so good! A great breakfast, thanks for sharing Nami!!!

    • Nami August 22, 2013, 12:37 pm

      Thank you so much for trying this recipe, and thanks for writing the substitute you used (so others can get benefit from it. :)). I’m so happy you enjoyed these scones! :)

  • A I September 9, 2013, 9:59 am

    Hi Nami, I made these yesterday afternoon. I had trouble shaping the dough (on a floured surface) cos it was super moist & uncooperative! I ended “dropping” the dough onto the cookie sheet so they definitely didn’t look as pretty as yours. But they taste good. Will make these again. And adding the turbinado sugar made them pop with a little sweetness.
    So far I’ve made your oyakodon, teriyaki sauce, the beef with shiso garlic soy & scones. I’m enjoying trying these new recipes. Thanks again! And ps: the photography looks very professional.

    • Nami September 10, 2013, 9:38 am

      Hi A I! As you see in Step 8, I didn’t have problem shaping the dough. Not sure why yours were more moist – maybe blueberries were wet or not enough flour?

      Thank you so much for your kind words! I’m so happy to hear you liked my recipes and thanks for trying them!
