    Make sure you use chilled butter with these scones or you won't get the perfect flaky texture. Chocolate and orange make them special.

    Serves: 12 

    • 1 3/4 cups plain flour
    • 1/3 cup white sugar
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 80g unsalted butter, chilled and cubed
    • 1/2 cup mini dark chocolate chips
    • 2 tablespoons orange juice

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:12min  ›  Ready in:27min 

    1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
    2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
    3. With a pastry blender or a large fork, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
    4. Stir in the chocolate chips. Mix in the orange juice to form a dough.
    5. Turn out the dough on a floured surface. Pat or roll into a 23cm circle about 1cm thick.
    6. With a 6cm fluted biscuit cutter, cut out 12 scones, pushing the dough scraps together for the last few, if necessary.
    7. Transfer the scones to the baking tray.
    8. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 12 minutes. Move to wire racks to cool.
