White chocolate and cherry scone recipe!

So September is here meaning that the nights are starting to draw in and the mornings are a little chillier. Autumn is well on the way and it always makes me want to bake more. Scones are a quick and easy treat to enjoy any time of year. This recipe was inspired by Gem’s blackberry scones post over on the mother cooker, I opted to go for white chocolate and cherry.

White chocolate and cherry scone recipe.

250g of self raising flour

1 pot of glacé cherries

1 tube of decorative stars.
white chocolate and cherry scone recipe milk bubble teaCherry and white chocolate scone recipe milk bubble teaPreheat your oven to 200 degrees, in a large bowl, add the flour, salt and baking powder. Add in the milk a splash at a time fold together with a fork, until it forms a dough. Don’t over-mix it.

Add in the sugar and the cherries to the dough, I used the full halves of the glacé cherries but in hindsight, they probably would have been better chopped up, whatever your personal preference is!

Gently dust the worktop with a sprinkling of flour and roll out the dough into a ball, pop it into a bowl, cover with clingfilm and leave it in the fridge for around 15 minutes. Try not to handle the dough with your hands too much as this can dry the scones out.

Flatten the dough onto the floured surface to about 5-6cm in depth and cut out 5-6 scones depending on how big you want them or how many you want.

Place the scones onto a baking tray lined with grease-proof paper and brush the tops with milk. Place in the oven for around 13-14 minutes, when lightly browned on the top they are ready! If you give the scones a little tap they should sound hollow. Place them on a wire rack for five minutes to cool.

Break up the white chocolate into a bowl, and pop it in the microwave for around 30 seconds at a time, making sure to keep an eye on it as it can burn quickly! Mix the chocolate together with a spoon until completely melted and slightly tacky, drizzle over the scones add stars or sprinkles for decoration.

And enjoy!

    I usually go for sweet when it comes to scones! I actually baked scones just last week! I followed my favourite recipe online to bake apricot currant rosemary scones <3 I've been eating them for breakfast (and as an afternoon snack and as dessert after dinner…) all week! Your white chocolate and cherry scones look delicious, and the decorative stars are such a lovely touch! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s
