1/3 C Bakers Sugar
2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda

Preheat your oven to 425F

Combine cake flour, salt, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cardamom, and lemon zest in a large bowl.  Grate in cold butter then work into the flour with your hands, pressing and forming sheets and flakes.  Your should have a rather mealy mixture with just a few small pieces of butter.  Add blueberries and toss to mix.

Combine eggs and buttermilk.  Make a small well in the dry mix then add your liquid.  Toss with your hands or with a large rubber spatula to form batter.

To form scones, place a greased 3" biscuit cutter ring on a parchment lined cookie sheet then spoon batter in to fill about 3/4 full.  Remove the ring and repeat.

Bake scones 12 - 15 minutes until they're golden and just lightly crisp on the top.

Cool on a wire rack.  serve warm.
