Orange Chocolate Chunk Scones

While vacationing in Wellington, New Zealand I had some amazing baked goods. The fresh scones at Deluxe cafe reminded me how much I love scones, and inspired me to make some of my own. So, after returning home with about 5 bars of New Zealand's famous Whitaker's chocolates I decided to put them to good use in these scones. I encourage you to make some yourself!

Preheat oven to 400 degrees


1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 cup white sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup sour cream
Chunks of orange-chocolate if you can find it. If not just use regular chocolate.
A good amount of Orange zest (basically just grate some Oranges down to the white area, but be sure not to include that bitter white part!)

  1. Sift all the dry ingredients together.
  2. Chop up the butter and add it to the dry ingredients (or rub it into pea size amounts using your hands) and drop into dry ingredients.
  3. Mix the milk and sour cream together and add to the above mixture.
  4. Add the Orange and chocolate.
  5. Roll them into balls and bake on a baking sheet for 10-12 minutes until gold brown.
Once you do all that you should end up with something muy tasty like this:


  1. These were really good. You can always use me as an excuse to make them.
