Ingredients

  • FOR THE SCONES
  • 2 cups (250g) plain/all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup (100g) caster/granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons (85g) unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) heavy cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (175g) chocolate chips
  • FOR THE GLAZE
  • 1 cup (125g) icing/powdered sugar
  • 1 - 2 tablespoons milk

Instructions

  1. For the Scones
  2. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6. Line a baking tray with parchment paper or a silicone mat, and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add the butter and, using a pastry cutter, fork, or your fingertips, work it into the mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. You may also use a food processor. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, cream, and vanilla until combined. Pour into the flour mixture and gently fold in until a soft dough is formed. Do not overmix.
  5. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and shape into an 8-inch round disc. Cut into 8 wedges, and transfer them to the prepared baking tray.
  6. Lightly brush each scone with heavy cream, then bake for 20 - 25 minutes or until lightly golden and cooked through. Allow to cool on the baking tray for 5 - 10 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool slightly whilst preparing the glaze.
  7. For the Glaze
  8. Whisk together the icing sugar and milk until smooth and runny. Drizzle over warm or room temperature scones and enjoy!
