These not-too-sweet scones are a delicious treat any time of day but make a decadent addition to brunch. Pop them into the oven after the bread pudding and potatoes come out. By the time the pudding has rested, the scones will be ready.

  • Portion size 18 servings

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cups whipping cream
  • 2 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup cold unsalted butter cubed
  • 2 bars (100 g each) good-quality milk chocolate chopped
  • 1 egg yolk

Method

Whisk together cream, eggs and vanilla; set aside.

In large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Using pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in butter until in coarse crumbs with a few larger pieces. Stir in chocolate. With fork, stir in cream mixture until dough forms.

Turn out onto lightly floured surface; knead once or twice until dough comes together. Roll out or pat into 9-inch (23 cm) square; cut into 9 squares. Halve each square diagonally. Place, 1 inch (2.5 cm) apart, on parchment paper–lined baking sheet. (Make-ahead: Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Whisk egg yolk with 1 tsp water; brush over scones. Bake in 450ºF (230ºC) oven until tops are golden, 11 to 12 minutes. Serve warm.
