Chocolate Chip Scone Recipe

The Chocolate Chip Scones recipe comes from my penchant for chocolate every 2-3 hours in a day! Its a low calorie cake like cookie which is to be enjoyed with your favourite Cappuccino or even tea.   All Purpose Flour (Maida), Cocoa Powder, Sugar, Baking powder, Butter (Unsalted), Whole Almonds (Badam), Chocolate chips, Fresh cream, Whole Eggs, Vanilla Extract, Chocolate ganache   Dry Ingredients 200 grams All Purpose Flour (Maida) 60 grams Cocoa Powder 125 grams Sugar 2 teaspoons Baking powder 75 grams Butter (Unsalted) , cut into cubes 1/2 cup Whole Almonds (Badam) , slices 1/2 cup Chocolate chips Wet Ingredients 150 ml Fresh cream 1 Whole Eggs 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract 1 recipe Chocolate ganache     15   30     To begin making the Chocolate Chip Scone Recipe, preheat your oven to 195 C.In a large mixing bowl, whisk all the Dry Ingredients together except assorted nuts. Add the butter into this mixture and knead it to form a crumbly mixture. Stir in all the wet ingredients (have them at room temperature) into the crumbly mixture. Add the choco chips/nuts. Knead it just a bit more until all the ingredients are well combined. Take care not to over knead it. Over-kneaded dough doesn’t give a very soft cake like a Scone.(if you have a stand mixer or a food processor then you can combine all the ingredients in the above way using them)Prepare your baking tray by greasing it with an oil spray or margarine. Put a layer of Butter paper/Parchment paper on top.Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and shape the dough into a big rounds by patting with your hands or rolling with a pin. The dough tends to be sticky so please don’t panic. Using a sharp, greased knife cut into wedges of desired size.You can optionally use cookie cutters to shape the scone dough. Carefully place the wedges on your baking tray and place it into the preheated oven.Bake for 15-20 minutes.Use a toothpick to check if it the chocolate scones are done. It should have a thick outer crust but extremely soft inside. Cool it for 15-20 minutes before you serve it.Pour the chocolate ganache over the Chocolate Scones and enjoy! Serve Chocolate Chip Scone along with hot Masala chai for your tea time break.
