Print Recipe



  • 2 cups all-purpose flour 240 grams
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar 50 grams
  • 2 teaspoons lavender buds 5 grams
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder 8 grams
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda 3 grams
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 large egg 50 grams, room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter 42 grams, melted
  • 3 tablespoons heavy whipping cream 43 grams, room temperature
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract 2 grams

For the glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar 113 grams
  • 3 tablespoons milk 43 grams
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract 2 grams
  • Purple food coloring optional


  • Preheat oven to 325°F and grease a scone pan with nonstick spray.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the flour, sugar, lavender buds, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together.
    2 cups all-purpose flour, ¼ cup granulated sugar, 2 teaspoons lavender buds, 2 teaspoons baking powder, ½ teaspoon baking soda, ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • Stir in egg, butter, whipping cream, and vanilla. A crumbly dough will come together.
    1 large egg, 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, 3 tablespoons heavy whipping cream, ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • You can either use a scone pan or turn out your dough onto a prepared baking sheet and cut into wedges. I chose a pan for convenience.
  • Bake about 18 to 20 minutes, until lightly browned and firm to the touch. They will rise slightly.
  • Remove from oven, transfer to a wire rack, and let cool completely.
  • While they are cooling, prepare your glaze. Mix together the powdered sugar with the milk and vanilla until you achieve your desired consistency. For a more opaque glaze, add more sugar. Add food coloring if you desire, but that is completely optional.
    3 tablespoons milk, ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract, 1 cup powdered sugar, Purple food coloring
  • Drizzle cooled scones with glaze and allow to set for 15 minutes prior to serving. Enjoy!


  • For a more vibrant lavender flavor, mix the lavender and sugar together ahead of time, pressing the buds into the sugar with your fingers to release their oils.
  • I like to bake these in a scone pan for ease, but you can turn them out onto a baking sheet as well.
  • The scones are baked when they are firm and ever so slightly browned.
  • Allow your scones to completely cool before glazing them.
Storage: Store vanilla lavender scones in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days, in the refrigerator for up to 1 week, or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
