Made some Chocolate and Walnut Scones for my Wife's workmates
Wow those look amazing!
what formula did you use?
I feel scones fall under that grey area between baking and cooking, so cups and messuring spoons rule.
1 3/4 c KAAP Flour
1/3 c Sugar
2 t. Baking Powder
1/2 t. Salt
6 T Cold Cubed Butter (unsalted always)
1 ea Egg, beatedn with enough milk add to make 3/4 of cup total
1/2 c chopped nuts
1/2 c bittersweet dark chocolate, chopped or chips
Sift dry ingredients together, cut in butter, add nuts and chocolate, then add half the wet and mix gently, add some more liquid until mixture holds together (I always have a little wet left over to brush on top of the scones before baking). Shape into a circle then cut into 8 wedges, brush tops with left over liquid. I like to bake on a Silpat mat, east clean up and they release better.
400F 12-15 minutes
I see you don't also use this dough for soda bread since it doesn't have any soda and no buttermilk. Bet it would make some good powder bread though.
to get some panettone out of the freezer - I'm hungry for desert for some reason. Nice baking! Got the old dough and levain dough in the fridge for their 24 hour retard. The old dough has better gluten structure but the levain dough seems to be rising better in the fridge and came out a little wetter. Can't wait to taste them.
I'd like to taste the scones too. Do you use the same dough for Soda Bread?
I am assuming that your photo is of a double batch
You are correct Jim. I would hate for some of her workmates to have been left out.
