Post Category - EatEat - Post Category - RecipesRecipes

These delicious buttermilk scones are something special with the addition of dark chocolate pieces, perfect with a cup of tea in the afternoon

Click here to read our interview with 7-year-old Elliot who cooks full family meals and his cookbook author mama Elodie Bellegarde.

Buttermilk chocolate scones
Makes 5 to 6

– 150g self raising flour
– 1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
– 60g butter
– 1 tbsp brown sugar
– 45 to 50g buttermilk
– 20g dark chocolate (we like 70% minimum), broken into small pieces
– touch of milk, to glaze

Directions
1. Preheat the oven to 180C.

2. In a large bowl, mix with your hands the flour, bicarb and butter until the mix resembles sand. Add the brown sugar and repeat.

3. Add the buttermilk and chocolate pieces and bring the mixture into a ball, scraping the sides of the bowl to collect all the floury sand. The ball shouldn’t be too wet (add a touch of flour) or too dry (add more buttermilk). Don’t over mix it.

4. Flatten it slightly (about 3 to 4cm thick) and with a small cookie cutter, stamp out rounds. Brush the surface with a touch of milk and bake in the oven for 10-15min until golden and risen.

What are your weekend plans with the kiddos? Mine are usually spent trying to find outdoor activities for my boys to expend their energy. One of our favourites is spending time by the sea, in fact most of our family holidays are in tropical locations by the beach. My boys have never seen snow so I’ve been thinking I should take them somewhere cold for a change! Any ideas where? Don't forget to check IG stories to see what I am up to tonight!

What’s your personal mama style? Having been part of a fashion business over the last 10 years (alongside my mum and sister) at @luxe_fashion_boutique, I have seen so many trends come and fade away. I love classic and timeless maxi dresses which defines my style and personality. I also prefer to invest in quality pieces that will last the test of time. ⠀

After I get my kids to school, my days are packed managing my day job where I’m the country head for a professional accounting body where I organise and host events and assist members in building their networks within the business community. No two days are the same which makes work interesting! Check out IG stories to see what I’m up to.
