About this recipe: These scrumptious scones will make you feel like you're Queen for a day! The chocolate chips make them very tasty but the orange juice makes them special. Make sure butter is well chilled to produce the flakiest texture possible. Serve with cream or lemon curd.


Serves: 12 

  • 1 3/4 cups plain flour
  • 1/3 cup castor sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 80g unsalted butter, chilled and cubed
  • 1/2 cup mini dark chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons (30ml) orange juice

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:12min  ›  Ready in:27min 

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  3. With a pastry blender or a large fork, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Stir in the chocolate chips. Mix in the orange juice to form a dough.
  5. Turn out the dough on a floured surface. Pat or roll into a 23cm circle about 1cm thick.
  6. With a 6cm fluted biscuit cutter, cut out 12 scones, pushing the dough scraps together for the last few, if necessary.
  7. Transfer the scones to the baking tray.
  8. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 12 minutes. Move to wire racks to cool.
