  • ¾ cup dried blueberries
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1½  cups self-rising flour
  • ⅓ cup honey crunch wheat germ
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cardamom
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 8 tablespoon butter, chilled cut into 1/2" cubes
  • extra buttermilk for brushing, and raw sugar
Preheat oven to 400 F.

Whisk flour, wheat germ, brown sugar, cardamom,salt, and ginger together.

Add butter, cut into coarse meal with pastry cutter or fingers.

Stir in buttermilk and vanilla.  Add blueberries.

Form into ball and press into circle on oiled sheet pan.  Cut into 8 wedges.  Brush with buttermilk and sprinkle with raw sugar.

Bake until golden, about 25 minutes.
