  • 2 cups (256 grams) all -purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup (67 grams) sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon (4.5 grams) baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon (1.5 grams) baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon teaspoon salt
  • 10 tablespoons (5 ounce , 150 grams) butter
  • 1/2 cup (120 grams) buttermilk or milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 - 1 Tablespoon grated lime
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/3 cup dried fruit pineapple, raisins, cranberry
  • 1/4 cup white chocolate


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  • In a medium bowl, whisk or sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, soda and salt
  • Work in the butter just until the mixture is unevenly crumbly; it's OK for some larger chunks of butter to remain unincorporated. Stir in the chocolate and pineapple
  • Whisk together eggs, vanilla, buttermilk and grated limes
  • Gently fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients and stir until all is moistened and holds together (like a ball)
  • Put dough on floured surface, and pat (gently!) with your hands only, until dough is about 1/2” thick. Fold dough over on itself about 5 times, then gently press down until about 1 inch thick
  • Use a large knife to slice the dough into 4 equal portions. Cut diagonally to produce 8 triangular slices of dough.
  • Separate wedges and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Brush with cream
  • Bake at 400° for 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned
  • Remove and serve warm
