I made these the other day - they were a hit!!!!!!
I will pop back with the recipe sometime over the weekend.
Now DONT take this recipe as gospel - it was adapted by someone on the net somewhere so I tried it - they left a few things out so I just adapted it again..........LOL.
DOUBLE CHOC MUD SCONES
1 3/4 cup plain flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/3 cup caster sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
5 tbsp unsalted butter
1/2 cup choc chips
Milk and 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
Combine sifted flour, cocoa, caster sugar, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Rub in the butter to form breadcrumbs. I added half the pack of Home Brand Choc Chips (you can go as light or as heavy as you like at this stage......LOL) Then form a well in the centre of the mix and slowly add milk and vanilla essence (this is the ingredient that was left out of the recipe - doh). I just added a little each time until it was the consistency of normal scones - slightly tacky - don't make it too dry.
Knead on a lightly floured board/bench, cut using a cookie cutter of your choice.
Pop in the oven 190 degrees for about 10-15 mins. Keep checking so they don't burn on the bottoms.
You may like to tweak this recipe a little - I had to. The scones are rather dense rather than light in texture. The kids and Sean raved over them and said they are "goers" for sure. Enjoy.
I actually tasted my first mud scone at Bakers Delight and thought "I must be able to make these" - so I did!!!!!
If you attempt them, pop back in and let me know what you think and if you altered the recipe to make it that little bit better.
