Sunday sweets – White chocolate berry scones

Posted on: May 23rd, 2010 by admin 3 Comments

When lovely Meredith posted a picture of this recipe on her blog, I knew we had to have it!  English scones are traditionally a huge part of our family!  We have devonshire tea regularly.  But what about straying from traditional scones and making these beauties?  White chocolate and berries go so well together.  You can obviously use real chocolate if you prefer, and we call these berry scones, because you can put any kind of berry into the recipe.  Whatever you have fresh/growing/available.  We’ve been making them with cherries lately.  Amazing!

  • 3/4 c plain yogurt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 3/4 c flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 c low fat margarine (I use butter)
  • 1 c fresh raspberries (can use other berries too)
  • 1/2 c sugar (we half it if we’re making them for breakkie!)
  • 1/2 c white chocolate chips (use the high end kind, huge difference in taste)

Preheat oven to 190ºC (375ºF).

Mix yogurt and egg together in a small bowl and set aside.   Now mix all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.

Cut/rub the margarine into dry ingredients until it resembles coarse breadcrumbs and then add the sugar.  Add yogurt and egg and then add the berries and white chocolate.

Form into rough triangles about the size of the triangle you make when you touch your pointer fingers and thumbs together. (!)

Place on ungreased baking sheet and bake for 15 – 20 min or until a bit brown.

While warm brush with melted butter/margarine and sprinkle with sugar.

Or what I did this time is took real lemon juice, mixed in a few heaping table spoons of icing sugar and mixed in a bit of lemon rind. Then I drizzled it on the scones.

Enjoy. mm
