Chocolate Scones

This would be a great breakfast addition instead of the same old toast. Or it could be a tasty treat for the girls arriving for a morning coffee visit. They are yummy and not too sweet, so everyone would enjoy them.


  • 3/4 cup whipping cream (of course)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp. really good vanilla (Mexican is THE best)
  • 2  1/2 cups flour
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • 4 tsp. baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/3 cup cold, unsalted butter, cubed
  • 8 oz. (generous) of good quality milk chocolate*, chopped
  • 1 egg yolk

Whisk together the cream, eggs and vanilla and set aside.

In a large bowl whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender (or fingers) until you have pea sized crumbs. Stir in the chocolate. Now with a large fork, stir in the cream mixture until a soft dough forms.

On a lightly floured surface, turn out the dough and knead a couple of times until it comes together.  With your fingers, pat  the dough into a 9 inch square. Cut into 9 squares and then cut each square on the diagonal. Brush the tops with a mixture of egg yolk and 1 tsp. water (well mixed).

Turn out on parchment lined baking sheets and bake in a 450 oven for about 12-14 minutes until the tops are a golden colour. For the best flavours….serve warm. Fresh coffee, latest news….WOW! What a day.


*If you use a lesser quality chocolate, it will be gritty and I hate that. Always use the best you can and you will never fail.
