Raspberry & Choc Scones

One of the best things about berries is they’re delicious in baking (no surprises there, right?) – whether you buy them fresh or frozen, there’s no end of delicious ways you can incorporate them into your baking.

While there are endless dessert recipes that are packed with berries, it can be a little trickier to find a good berry-filled recipe that’s perfect for morning or afternoon tea – that’s where this recipe for quick, easy and delicious sweet scones. Yip, sweet scones!

These raspberry and white chocolate scones are absolutely fantastic. While the dough itself is just lightly sweetened, the finished scones have a deliciously sweet taste thanks to the raspberries packed inside them. The sprinkling of white chocolate chips gives every couple bites something a little different, adding a bit of decadence to these ridiculously easy treats.

Like all good scones, these are super easy to prepare – you’ll have the dough mixed, shaped and ready to pop in the oven in around 15 minutes! Either shape into a loaf and divide into wedges before baking as I did, or shape the dough into individual scones instead – you’d get around six from the mixture.

These are best served warm straight from the oven and go down an absolute treat with a good cup of tea – I recommend trying some from this London Tea Box set, it’s delish!
