Club: Baked - Nutella Scones

Welcome to the latest round of baking with Club: Baked!  This round is being hosted by Lorraine over at PhD Cupcaker, and she has chosen Nutella Scones.

Now, I don't usually do a whole lot of morning baking....sure I'll make some muffins here, or quickbreads there.......but when I get up all I'm looking for is my morning caffeine.  My kids know that Mommy needs some coffee in her in the morning before I can be any fun!  Anyways, my point being, I have never tried making scones before......they just seemed like they would be kind of a hassle.

Well, I have to admit that I was totally wrong!  This dough was not all all hard to throw together.....although it definitely was messy with all that Nutella in and on top of it!!  If you're not a nut person, you could definitely leave out the nuts.......but I thought that they were fantastic in there....I loved that extra crunch you got!  These do have an intense chocolate/Nutella taste.....I kind of think they would be better suited for your afternoon coffee bread rather than first thing in the morning.....but hey, that's just me!

For the recipe, go to Phd Cupcaker, and go to Club: Baked to see the other baker's results.......and Enjoy!!

  2. Kristen - Your scones came out great! This was my first attempt at scones and I was surprised at how easy they were too! I had one in the morning, but agree that they were great in the afternoon with a cup of tea or hot chocolate. thanks for baking along!

  3. I'll have to give these another shot with nuts in them. Based on the early reviews, I wasn't sure if I would like them, so I sprinkled nuts on top instead of putting them into the dough.
