Eggless Chocolate Scones

Eggless Chocolate Scones

Eggless Chocolate Scones are the variation to the traditional Irish baked scones. Cocoa powder is added along with flour and cream to give it a chocolatey flavor. They are dense then cake or muffin and soda water is used to raise it. They are a good treat with tea for your morning or afternoons and can be served with some melted chocolate. They can be refrigerated for a week of freezed for couple of months. Just warm before serving.

  • Dust again with some flour. Now fold in from edge to center from one side. We are laminating the dough. It is like we do for making puff pastry sheets or croissant. lamination of dough will help in getting good flaky layers.

  • Fold similarly from the other edge to the center. Again press and spread the mixture to form a rectangle and repeat the process of folding the edges to center as above. Repeat this for one more time. Folding the edges helps into getting layered and flaky scones

  • Drizzle some chocolate sauce or icing sugar on it and serve straight from the oven. I had use the store brought Hersey's chocolate sauce. (You can melt the chocolate and drizzle on the scones). The scones can be enjoyed with a cup of tea or coffee straight from the oven. They can be stored in an air tight container for 2-3 days at room temperature in cold climate or refrigerate for a week.
