Serves: 8
Prep time: 10 mins

Ingredients for the Scones:
  • 300g self raising flour
  • 50g chilled butter
  • 25g caster sugar
  • 1 tsp mixed spice

Chocolate Hazelnut and Raw Honey SconesMethod:

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C fan and line a large baking tray

Place the hazelnuts on a baking tray and roast for 5 minutes whilst making the scone dough

In a food processor, whizz together the flour, butter, mixed spice and caster sugar

Add the egg and milk, then the honey and continue to pulse

Crush the roasted hazelnuts whilst the dough is forming

Once fully combined and a dough texture is starting to form turn out the scone mix into a bowl and add the roasted hazelnuts and dark chocolate chips

Mix using a wooden spoon or your hands until the chocolate and nuts are evenly distributed

Sprinkle a little flour over your work surface to prevent sticking and turn out the dough, gently shaping into a ball

Place the ball onto the lined baking tray and press down creating a wide circle shape

Cut the dough into 8 equal triangles and brush the tops with a little milk

Place in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through

Once fully baked remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly

These scones are best when eaten on the same day, slightly warmed.
