Description

I love scones, I love dried cranberries and I love dark chocolate. So how bad can a dark chocolate and cranberry scone be? And since I live in Scotland I’m adding a little malt whiskey!

Ingredients

  • ½ cups Dried Cranberries
  • ½ cups Dark Chocolate Chunks Or Chips
  • 2 Tablespoons Malt Whisky
  • 8 ounces, weight Plain Flour
  • 2-¼ teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Baking Soda (or Bicarb)
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 2 Tablespoons Light Brown Sugar
  • 2 ounces, weight Unsalted Butter
  • 10 tablespoons, 7 pinches Whole Milk Plus Extra To Brush On The Top Of The Scones

Preparation

In a bowl add the dried cranberries and dark chocolate chunks. Pour the malt whiskey over the top, stir and cover with cling film. Set aside for about 20 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 220 C.

In a bowl add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar. Cut the butter into small cubes and add it into the flour mixture. Lightly rub together with your fingertips, ever so gently.

When the mixture resembles crumbs add the milk and the reserved dark chocolate and cranberry mixture. Mix with the flat side of a knife until just combined.

Turn the dough out onto a flat surface and gently flatten with your fingers until it’s about an inch thick. Cut the scones into your preferred size and place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.

Brush the tops with a little milk and bake for 12 minutes.
