Chocolate Marmalade Scones Recipe Come rain, shine, snow or sleet- I am indefinitely one to encourage the enjoyment of afternoon tea (so much so, it seems to make weekly appearances on here)! Perhaps it's a British thing (like my incessant complaining of the rain, sarcastic sense of humour and drinking tea at optimum temperature) or perhaps it's because they're so damn easy- but these scones are the perfect remedy to any afternoon at home (three cheers to freelancing), and they hardly take any time at all! Based on a Bake Off recipe- you can also add marmalade to the filling for an extra twist, but either way is just as tasty #greedygalprobs.

These scones do taste best hot out of the oven, so much so that I hot footed it to my neighbours with a small bundle to enjoy with some marmalade (or Nutella) and a good cuppa! I also took the opportunity to pop on my awesome new Goodmans Heritage Radio whilst in the kitchen- way to make baking a little more fun!
Chocolate Marmalade Scones Recipe
You will need:
- A baking tray, lined and greased.
- 250g self raising flour
- Pinch of salt
- 50g caster sugar
- 50g unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
- 1 egg
- 100ml buttermilk
- 60g chocolate chips (Sainsburys now do a milk choc 'Taste the Difference' pack which are life changing)
- 1/2 tablespoons marmalade (optional)
Chocolate Marmalade Scones Recipe
1. Heat your oven to 220 degrees. Sift your flour, salt and sugar into a mixing bowl.

2. Rub your butter into the mixture, to create a mix which looks a little like small crumbs (technical).

3. Put your egg and buttermilk into a bowl, and beat until combined. Pour into the crumby mixture.

4. Add your chocolate chips and marmalade, and mix with a round edged knife to blend into a dough.

5. Use your hands to bring the mixture together and tackle the last crumbs, creating a soft dough.

6. Dust your worktop with flour, and knead your dough for a few seconds- pat out until about 3cm thick. Use a small round cutter (or teeny bowl) to stamp out your scones- re-flour your surface if things get sticky!
Chocolate Marmalade Scones Recipe 7. Separate the scones on your baking tray and pop in the oven and bake for about 12 minutes until golden brown (yup, this song will now be in your head) and cool very slightly before gobbling up!

  12. These look amazing. For some reason, as a baker, I have never thought to put chips in scones. Did you have to wash your hands between every photo?
