Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 6 servings


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • pinch salt
  • 3/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vinegar

For the icing

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • lemon zest


  • Preheat your oven to 350ºF. Meanwhile in a bowl mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Using a pastry blender cut in the butter until it looks like small crumbs.
  • In a small bowl whisk together the milk, lemon juice and vinegar. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry until a moisten dough forms. Turn out to a lightly-floured surface and knead 4 times. Pat into a 1-inch round.
  • Using a round cutter or a cup, cut dough into rounds and place on a baking sheet.
  • Bake the scones until the bottoms are just tan, about 11 to 13 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool 10 minutes.
  • While the scones are cooling prepare the icing by whisking together the powdered sugar, vanilla, lemon juice and honey. Spread on scones and top with lemon zest. Serve.
