Choc-Chip Scones


3 Cups Self-Raising Flour

80g Butter, chopped

1 – 1 1/4 Cups Milk (start with just 1 Cup, and add the rest if needed)

3/4 Cup Milk Chocolate Chips (or Dark if you prefer)


Preheat your oven to 200C.

Place your flour into a large mixing bowl.

Using your fingertips, rub the butter into the flour until it resembles breadcrumbs.

Add your Chocolate chips and mix through the flour.

Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture and add the milk.

Using a flat-bladed knife, gently stir the milk into the flour until it forms a soft dough.

Add the extra milk if required.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured board, and knead gently, but not too much or your scones will be tough.

Pat dough into a 2cm-thick round. Using a 5cm (diameter) round cutter, cut out 12 rounds.

Press dough together and cut out remaining 4 rounds.

Place scones onto prepared baking tray, 1cm apart.

Sprinkle tops with a little plain flour.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden and well risen. Transfer to a wire rack.
