Delicious Cranberry Chocolate Scones

Delicious Cranberry Chocolate Scones

Here's another delicious recipe for home-baked scones.

by Paddy, ALP Cycles Coaching

During this time of quarantine, many of us are at home cooking and baking. Here is another delicious recipe for home-baked scones. They are easy to make and perfect for riding or snacks. 

Ingredients (makes 8 scones):





  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter (cut into small cubes)
  • 1 cup whole milk or cream
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup almonds

Scone Ingredients - ALP Cycles Coaching


  1. Prepare all the ingredients (see above) 
  2. Cut the cranberries, chocolate chips, and almonds into small pieces.
  3. In a bowl, combine the milk with the honey and orange zest. Stir until the honey is dissolved in the milk. 
  4. In a separate bowl, add the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  5. Cut the butter into small pieces and add to the flour. Work the butter into the flour until it resembles a coarse meal consistency (use a pastry blender, food processor, or mix by hand).
  6. Stir in cranberries, chocolate, and almonds, to the flour-butter mix. Then add the milk-honey mixture. Use a spatula to mix together.
  7. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead the dough a few times until it just comes together (don't overdo the kneading!!). 
  8. Form the dough into a circle shape (8 to 9 inches in width) then cut into 8 triangles.Scone Dough - ALP Cycles Coaching
  9. Get a baking tray covered with parchment paper and place scones on the parchment paper.
  10. Brush scones with milk and sprinkle some coarse sugar on top.
  11. Bake at 425 for around 12 minutes. (scones should be slightly golden brown).
  12. Let the scones cool for about 10 mins before serving. 

Enjoy! :) 

Note: You can, of course, substitute the cranberries, chocolate, and almond with other ingredients (dried fruit, nuts, etc.) be creative and find your favorite combo.
