Adding Lemon to a Scone Recipe

Recommended Posts

I'm planning to make this recipe but will change the mixed berries to blueberries and, in addition, would like to add a tablespoon or two of Microplaned lemon zest.  Will the addition of the zest require any other changes to the recipe?  Thanks.

I agree.  I expect that you would only need to worry if the new ingredient was going to add 1) moisture/water 2) appreciable fat or sugar.  They may be other things to look out for, but these are the 2 I think about first.

Structurally, no.  But you might want to modify the seasoning (sugar, salt, zest) if you're just using blueberries.  They can be very bland.  Also, they tend to release less moisture than other berries, so you may need less flour.
