Orange and Chocolate Scones - Recipe


Orange and Chocolate Sconesnot the first flavour of scone you may think of, but I had the urge for something other than plain or Cherry Scones. So with a single orange in the fruit bowl and a handful of dark chocolate chips at the bottom of a packet, I set to baking. I hope you enjoy this somewhat different scone recipe - especially for National Baking Week 15-21st October

Orange and Chocolate Scones - Recipe 
makes 6

8oz self raising flour
1/2 tsp salt
2oz butter
1/4 pint of milk
Zest of one orange
1 1/2 oz dark chocolate drops
  • Sift flour and salt into a bowl.
  • Rub the butter into the flour with your finger tips, until it resembles breadcrumbs.
  • Add the orange zest and chocolate chips.
  • Add all the milk, and mix to a soft sticky dough, I use my hands for this.
  • Turn out onto a well floured work surface. I don't roll my dough out I use my hands to gentle flatten the dough to about 1/2 inch thick.
  • Cut into 6 rounds using the 2 1/2 inch cutter.
  • Place on a baking sheet and glace with milk.
Bake at 220 degrees or gas mark 8 for 10-12 minutes or until they are golden brown. Cool on a cooling rack.

Tip - you can get a few extra Orange and Chocolate scones out of this recipe by using a smaller sized cutter.

  2. Now, I have never had an orange and chocolate scone before and can't imagine why not because they look delicious and sound scrumptious.
