Ingredients

  • 225g self-raising flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 1 tsp cream of tartar
  • ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 50g cold unsalted butter, diced
  • zest of 1 large orange
  • 100g dark chocolate, chopped
  • 50g mini honeycomb pieces
  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 75-100ml milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 x 227g tub of clotted cream, to serve
  • 1 x 340g jar of apricot jam, to serve

Step by step

Get ahead
Best served on the day they're made or cool completely, then freeze.
  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C, fan 200°C, gas 7.
  2. Sift the flour, cream of tartar, bicarbonate of soda and a pinch of salt into a large mixing bowl. Add the butter and orange zest and rub in until the mixture resembles fine crumbs.
  3. Add the chocolate and honeycomb; mix well.
    Tip
    Want to make individual round scones? Stamp out 8 x 6cm rounds and bake for 15 minutes.
  4. Slowly add the orange juice and half the milk and, using a knife, start to mix the dough. Continue adding the milk a tablespoon at a time – you only need to add enough to bring the dough together, you may not need it all.
  5. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead for 20 seconds. Don't over-work the dough or the scones will become heavy.
  6. Pat the dough into a side plate-sized circle (about 18cm), then brush with beaten egg. Place onto a lined baking sheet and score the surface into 8 wedges.
  7. Bake on the middle shelf for about 18-20 minutes until well-risen and golden.
  8. Serve warm or at room temperature, sliced into 8 wedges, with clotted cream and jam alongside.
Chef quote
I love the versatility of a good scone recipe – how you can take a fluffy little pillow of yumminess into a whole new dimension.
