These scones are wonderfully delicious and melt in your mouth. Additionally they are wholemeal, low in fat & sugar and healthy. They are best served with clotted cream and strawberry jam with a mug of hot chocolate!
2 cups wholemeal spelt flour
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp baking powder
80g butter, cut into small cubes
1 cup of Hot Chocolate:
2 tsp cocoa powder
2 tsp stevia or sugar
Preheat the oven to 200C / Gas mark 7
Mix the flour, baking powder and sugar
Add the softened butter cubes and mix well until the mixture looks like crumbs
Add enough milk until a dough is formed. All the milk may not be needed.
Sprinkle flour on the worktop and knead the dough until it looks smooth
Then roll out the dough to approximately 2cm thick
Use a 5cm round cookie cutter to cut the scones and place them on a tray lined with greaseproof paper
Bake for 13-15 minutes until slightly golden
Whilst the scones are in the oven, pour the milk and cocoa powder & stevia powder or sugar into a saucepan and boil. Whisk it to make it frothy and pour into a mug. The quantities are for 1 mug - this can be multiplied to make more
To serve the scones
Slice the scones in half and spread both sides with butter and add jam and a dollop of clotted cream in the middle
Optional: For lighter scones, half cup of wholemeal spelt flour could be replaced with plain flour
To store: The scones can be kept in a container in the fridge for 3-4 days
