Since I love the Baked Explorations cookbook so much, I decided to start a baking group dedicated to baking each and every recipe from it. This is the first one our group is doing. Head over to Baked Sunday Mornings and you can see everyone else's posts and how they did with this recipe.
I tried my hardest not to overwork the dough, but I did, and my scones were just a teeny tiny bit on the tough side. Tough is good if you are walking down a dark alley and there's a 6ft 5 silhouette heading your way. It's not a good thing for scones ! But in spite of my mistake they were delicious, especially warm with Nutella just drizzled on them-it's a decadent way to start the day. No one has to know-so your trainer at the gym says what did you have for breakfast-you answer oh just a scone and cup of coffee. You don't have to tell her or him that it was a chocolate scone filled with Nutella,drizzled with Nutella ,dotted with fresh roasted hazelnuts - a superb bite of deliciousness . Just add another mile or two to the treadmill-these are worth it. If you want to try them yourself head over to Baked Sunday Mornings for the recipe and join our group. Bon Appetit !
