I too added blueberries and lemon zest. very good. I also made a lemon confectioner's sugar glaze to drizzle over the top for something extra special. recommend using buttermilk; it really adds to the scones.

Yum! I made these with frozen blueberries and lemon zest instead of currants and orange zest. I subbbed the pastry flour with corn starch and regular whole wheat flour like the previous comment suggested, and they turned out fine. I could see using different fruit /flavor combinations easily with this recipe.
Love this recipe! Made them without the currants as I don't care for them and they were wonderful with just the orange zest. Also made a batch without the currants and orange zest and added toffee pieces. Great!
I didn't have any w.w. pastry flour on hand and so I put two tbsp. of corn starch in my one cup measure before filling the rest with regular whole wheat flour. Worked fine.
This will be a staple recipe for me.
