2 of 9
Naturipe Blood Orange Berry Scones with Apple Citrus Compote
50 minutes


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon blood orange zest
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, chilled and cut into tiny pieces
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ cup half and half
  • 1 cup mixed fresh Naturipe® blueberries and sliced Naturipe® strawberries

Egg Wash

  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon half and half
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, for topping


  • 2 tablespoons fresh blood orange juice
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar


  • 1 Envy apple, peeled, cored, diced
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • ¼ cup blood orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • Segments from one blood orange


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a large baking sheet with parchment.
  2. Wash and dry three blood oranges (since size and juiciness varies, best to have a few more on hand if additional juice is needed). Zest oranges until you’ve got one tablespoon of zest. Peel and separate one orange into segments. (If this sounds time consuming, consider a quick on-line video to learn the quick technique). Squeeze the other two oranges to produce roughly ½ cup juice.
  3. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, zest, baking powder and salt. Remove one tablespoon of mixture and toss with berries. Add butter pieces to the large bowl and quickly work them into the flour mixture (using your fingers, two forks, or a pastry cutter) until it resembles a course meal. Set aside.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together egg and half and half, then add to flour mixture. Use the fork to stir everything together just until moistened.
  5. Gently stir berries into dough.
  6. Empty the loose dough out onto a floured work surface, then shape the dough into an 8-inch round.
  7. Cut dough into 8 wedges and carefully transfer to the prepared sheet so they maintain their shape.
  8. Chill dough for 15 minutes before lightly brushing wedges with egg wash and sprinkling them with sugar.
  9. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until just golden brown. (Avoid overcooking as that will dry out the scones.)
  10. While scones are baking, place all compote ingredients, except orange segments, in a small saucepan. Simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally, until apples are tender. Remove from flame and stir in orange segments.
  11. Whisk together blood orange juice and powdered sugar to make glaze. Drizzle over slightly warm scones.
  12. Place compote in a large ramekin and serve alongside butter with warm scones.

For the cake:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease and flour a 10x10 cake pan* and set aside.
  2. Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time until fully incorporated.
  3. Add in sour cream, vanilla, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  4. Fold in the flour carefully until it comes together into a tight, thick batter.
  5. Pour half of the batter into the pan, spoon in a layer of filling, then pour the rest of the batter on top. If there is extra filling, spoon it on top of the batter.
  6. Bake 60–75 minutes,* or when a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean and the center doesn’t jiggle when the pan is moved. Allow the cake to cool completely before serving.

Additional Notes:
*The baking time will change depending on the pan: a Bundt cake tin will take 50–60 minutes, 55–70 minutes for a square pan, and muffin tins will take 30 minutes.

  • ¾ cup of 1:1 gluten free baking “flour”
  • ⅓ cup light brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon dried ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 cups (about 10 ounces) of Naturipe® Frozen Berries (berry blend) or your choice (Chop if you choose whole strawberries)
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice from about 1/2 small lemon
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar, divided

Glaze Topping

  • ½ cup powdered sugar, sifted
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon Coconut or other milk you prefer


  1. Place a rack in the center of your oven and preheat to 375 degrees F. Line an 8×8-inch baking pan with parchment paper so that the paper overhangs two sides like handles.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the oats, flour, brown sugar, ginger, and salt.
  3. Pour in the melted butter and stir until it forms clumps and the dry ingredients are evenly moistened. Set aside ½ cup of the crumble mixture, then press the rest into an even layer in the bottom of the prepared pan.
  4. Scatter half of the berries over the crust.
  5. Sprinkle the cornstarch evenly over the top, then sprinkle on the lemon juice and 1/2 tablespoon of the granulated sugar.
  6. Scatter on the remaining berries, then the remaining 1/2 tablespoon sugar. Sprinkle the reserved crumble mixture evenly over the top. You will have some fruit showing through.
  7. Bake the bars for 35 to 40 minutes, until the fruit is bubbly and the crumble topping smells toasty and looks golden. Place the pan on a wire rack to cool completely (you can speed this process along in the refrigerator).

While the bars cool, prepare the glaze:

  1. In a medium bowl, briskly whisk together the powdered sugar, vanilla, lemon zest and milk until smooth. Add more milk if a thinner consistency is desired.
  2. Using the parchment-paper handles, lift the bars from the pan. Drizzle with glaze, slice, and serve.
