Easy Chocolate Chip Scones

We are big fans of scones here.  They are an absolute favourite with a cup of tea.  They really are very easy to make at home.  Instead of the usual sultanas this recipe uses chocolate chips to add a little treat to your scones.

Ingredients

  • 400g Self raising flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 100g butter
  • 50g Caster sugar
  • 200ml milk
  • 50g chocolate chip

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 220 degrees
  • Mix the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder in a large mixing bowl
  • Cut the butter in to cubes and mix in to the flour mix
  • When it resembles breadcrumbs add the chocolate chips and stir
  • Slowly add the milk and mix until you have a dough.  You may not need all of the milk.
  • Grease & flour an 8″ loose bottom baking tin
  • Press the scone mixture in to the tin
  • Brush over the top with a little milk and cook for 10 to 12 minutes until risen and golden brown on the top

They taste lovely whilst still warm.

    That’s clever, I’ve never thought about doing a huge scone and just cutting it afterwards. I might get the kids to do this next week.

    These look so yummy! I love scones but I bet they are even better with chocolate in them.

    Hands down chocolate chip scones are pretty much my favourite things to eat so I’ve bookmarked this recipe for when I finish my two week detox diet so I can make these. Great thing is I think I can easily make them vegan friendly too! Yay x

    I could so settle down with a big mug of coffee and a slice of this right now. It sounds delicious.

    Homemade scones are the best! My Mum used to make them all the time. You can’t beat them when they’re still warm 🙂

    Yum, we love scones, and the MIL always makes them for them and us to have with clotted cream they bring back from holiday. Like the idea of chocolate chips, although not sure non-plain would go down well with the OH

    That looks like an easy recipe! I’ll try :). I’ve never seen anyone called the sugar I normally used ‘caster’. That’s awesome and I learn new things daily, lol. Thx!

    Mmmm, they sound lovely. I can just imagine eating them warm. I like the idea of replacing the currants with chocolate chips. Trouble with that is then my hubby will eat them. He won’t touch regular dcones because he hates currants and raisins. Might try saying the chios are currants.
