Honey Lavender Scones


Makes 8-10 large scones

  • 2 cups / 240g all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp kosher or sea salt
  • ¼ cup / 50g white sugar
  • 5 Tbsp cold butter, cut into dice sized pieces
  • 1½ Tbsp organic culinary grade dried lavender buds
  • ¼ cup /85g honey
  • ¾ cup / 180mL heavy cream, plus more for brushing
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • Demerara sugar for sprinkling, optional (can use white sugar)


  1. Preheat the oven to 232C / 450F.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar, until fully combined.
  3. Using your fingers, add the butter in and work it through the flour mixture until the butter is the size of small lentils. Fold in the lavender buds.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the honey and the heavy cream.
  5. Using a spatula, tip the honey and cream mixture into the flour/butter mixture. Add in the vanilla extract, and egg. Mix until a slightly sticky dough forms. If the dough is too sticky, add more flour.
  6. Knock the dough out on to a lightly floured surface, and knead gently, and press into a large circle about 1-inch / 2.5cm thick.
  7. Cut into 9-10 wedges and brush the top of each scone with cream. Sprinkle with demerara sugar and place onto an ungreased baking sheet.
  8. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until the scones are golden brown. Place on a rack to cool and serve immediately with lemon curd.

@judyjoochef Instagram profile imageHappy 84th birthday daddy!! 

My father was born in 1939 in Chongju, a city in what is now in North Korea. He and his family (8 brothers and sisters) fled south during the war and he grew up as a refugee on Jeju island.  He still remembers asking American soldiers for “bonbons” as a child. Somehow he made it to Seoul National University medical school through hard work and determination. He immigrated to the USA to do his internship and residency and practiced as a psychiatrist, until retiring at 75. 
He raised two daughter (me and my sis!) with my mom and is a source of constant inspiration for us both to this day. At 84 years old he is still super healthy, doesn’t take any medicine (unheard of at his age!) and still going strong in every way. 

I love you daddy so much!  Happy happy birthday!  Xx❤️❤️ I’ll always be your little girl! ❤️❤️
