ANOTHER SCONE?! Yes… It’s an obsession. Accept it and make them. These are a new flavour variation that I tried. They turned out perfectly!
2 cups (240 g) all-purpose flour
6 tbsp granulated sugar
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Zest of 1 lime
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, frozen
1 tsp espresso powder mixed with 1/2 tsp hot water
1 cup raspberries
1 cup white chocolate chips
For the Glaze:
1 cup icing sugar
2 tbsp milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extra
Preheat oven to 400˚F.
Mix first 5 ingredients in a bowl.
Grate butter into flour mixture (using a box grater) and mix with a fork.
Create a well in the centre and add heavy cream, egg, and vanilla extract. Mix these wet ingredients in the well and then mix with the entire mixture.
Add in white chocolate and raspberries and mix well (use your hands).
Transfer to floured surface and cut the same way as the Earl Grey Scones with Vanilla Glaze
Bake for 10-15 minutes.
Allow to cool. Mix glaze ingredients and drizzle on top of scones.
Science Fact of the Week:
White chocolate is not actually chocolate, it is considered a chocolate derivative. It doesn’t contain any cocoa powder, rather it contains cocoa butter.
