Chocolate Scones. The Breakfast of Real Champions.
Course: Breakfast & Brunch, Sweets
Sweets Sub-Category: Pastries
I would like to champion chocolate for breakfast. These 100% whole grain scones are made possible by the best stone-ground whole grain flour you can buy (thanks to Nan from Grist and Toll).
2cupWhole wheat flour240g
Some Good semi sweet or milk chocolatechopped up, using as much as you see fit.
Preheat oven to 380F.
Place the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, sugar and salt in a large bowl or the bowl of a food processor. Rub the cold butter into the flour until they are the size of your tiny pinky nail (or pulse a couple of times in the food processor).
Whisk the egg, buttermilk and cream together. Pour the dry ingredients over the wet and stir, with the chocolate too, with a wooden spoon or spatula until just moistened.
Turn the dough onto your counter and loosely shape into an 8" circle. Cut into 8 triangles. Place on a parchment-paper lined cookie sheet and bake for about 15 minutes. If you need to, glaze with melted chocolate (we melt equal parts butter and chocolate together). MMMMmmmmmmmmmmmm.....
