Verdict on this Chocolate Scone?

Have you ever tasted a dessert that makes you go like… This Brownie is delicious and so fudgey. And then people would wonder whether you actually baked a scone or a brownie. Well these Chocolate Scones taste like moist brownies when it comes piping hot outta the oven. If you eat them shortly after, you’ll experience SUPREME BLISS.

The gooey melted chocolate on your fingers and mouth. Don’t tell me you didn’t experience that 5 seconds of Chocolate bliss.

As you all know, I have pretty much a dark side to me. I’ll choose a chocolate dessert over a fruity one any day. How can anyone resist chocolates? Chocolate lovers (I dare you to click here), only you and I understand each other. That’s where the line is drawn so distinctly. Anyway, if you’re not a chocolate fan, these orange cranberry scones recipe is equally droolworthy. The orange zest and sweet cranberries compliments the whole scone all together, making it the perfect addition to your tea time snack. Please head over if you’re not willing to indulge in the dark side for once.

Double Chocolate Scones

But it taste so much like Brownies

Ok so these dark chocolate chip scones were the reason why I passed up on my diet. It’s crispy around the edges like how a scone would be and perfectly moist in the middle. Don’t expect it to be all gooey and chewy like a brownie because HEY I AM NOT A BROWNIE! It taste like a brownie for some parts but it’s not entirely a brownie. It still has that crusty edge for scones. A little harder to eat with a fork but it still works. Talking about brownies…. You need to try my PALEO DARK CHOCOLATE RASPBERRY BROWNIES!!! They are the only brownies that first come to my mind whenever i talk about brownies… Welll Get it?? Head over for the recipe.

Back to the Chocolate scones….. My 2 year old nephew ran off one day with the entire wedge. He began quietly eating it at the corner before his Dad noticed and “stole” it away from him. He was sick and harbouring a cough. Oh dear me. I was innocent.

Speculoos Scones

This recipe was adapted from Sallybakingaddiction. Never gone wrong with her dessert recipes. Made a little tweaks to it. Speculoos drizzle is a MUST. I find myself attracted to the speculoos drizzled chocolate chip scones more. You can drizzle anything that you fancy. I believe Chocolate goes with everything….

Course: Breakfast, chocolate, Dessert, scones, teabreak
Cuisine: desserts
Keyword: chocolatescones, desserts, scones, speculoos, teatime
Servings: 4 people
Ingredients for Scones:
  • 1 2/3 cups (or 210g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup (or 26g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup (or 100g) Castor sugar
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup (or 115g) unsalted butter Chilled/ Frozen
  • 1/2 cup (or 1 Tbsp) 135ml heavy cream
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 6 oz (or 150g) semi-sweet chocolate coarsely chopped
Ingredients for Glaze
  • 1/2 cup (or 60g) confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tbsp (or 30ml) water
  • More Chocolate for melting or Speculoos Cookie Butter Sauce for drizzling on top of the scones ( Optional)
Steps for making scones:
  1. Preheat oven to 190deg cel. Adjust baking rack to the middle-low position. Line a large baking sheet with baking paper and set aside
  2. In a food processor, pulse flour, cocoa powder, cinnamon powder, sugar, baking powder, salt together for 3 sec to mix them.
  3. Add in the cold butter and pulse until mixture is crumbly and still coarse. Do not over pulse as the butter would melt. Just a few pulse would do. Pour flour mixture into a mixing bowl.
  4. In another bowl, whisk the cream, egg, and vanilla together.
  5. Making a well in the middle of the flour mixture, drizzle the egg mixture over and toss the mixture together with a rubber spatula until everything appears moistened.
  6. Slowly and gently fold in the Chocolate Chips. Try your best to not overwork the dough at any point. Dough will be a little wet.
  7. Work the dough into a ball with floured hands as best as you can and transfer to a floured surface. Press down slightly to get a flat surface and using a sharp knife, cut the dough into 8 equal wedges.
  8. Place scones at least 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet as they will spread and bake for 18-20 mins or until a toothpick inserted comes out almost clean.
  9. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes as you make the glaze.
Steps for making the glaze:
  1. Whisk the confectioners' sugar and water together. You can either dunk the scones in the glaze or use a pastry brush to brush the tops and sides of the scones with this glaze. It makes it more moist the next few days. Feel free to drizzle the top with melted chocolate or speculoos sauce. YUMS
Recipe Notes

Scones taste best the day it is made or even best if they come straight out from the oven. You can leave them at RT for a few days or freeze them and microwave them for a few secs before consuming
