The kids love scones for breakfast. These have been requested for a while now, so I thought I would make them for the kids. We use the leftovers for breakfasts all week.
Orange, Chocolate & Carrot Scones
2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 large carrot shredded
6 tbsp cold butter
1/2 cup orange juice
3 tbsp maple syrup
Preheat oven to 400°F . Place flour through salt into a mixing bowl. Shredd carrot into the mixture and cut the butter slowly in. You can use a pastry cutter to cut in butter or a mixe r works fine as well. Mix together the orange juice and maple syrup and slowly add wet mixture to dry mixture. Use a biscuit cutter to cut the scones into small rounds. Bake at 400°F for 16 minutes or until dry on the top.
Serve warm with jelly or plain.
