Scruffins?

I got this recipe from the Good Things Catered blog. I had been calling them Scruffins, then I went to make a copy of the recipe for a friend and Frank noticed that they are not Scruffins, but Scuffins! Makes more sense since they are a cross between a muffin and a scone, no "r" in there anywhere! Good Things Catered had them as lemon poppy seed, but I changed it to blueberry lemon. They all got great reviews from the customers on our charters last week, and from our friends over the week-end.
Not such a great picture, but here's the great recipe:

Lemon Poppy Seed Scuffins

2 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 c. granulated sugar

1/2 c. cream
1/4 c. freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 Tbsp lemon zest
1 tsp lemon extract
1 tsp vanilla extract
5 tsp poppy seeds

powdered sugar for dusting
