Super easy recipe! I was concerned about converting the recipe from metric to imperial system, but it didn’t seem to affect anything. In total, the entire process took about 30 minutes (including baking time) so this is a fairly quick recipe. We used Crosse and Blackwell Orange Marmalade which seemed fitting and it added a nice subtle orange flavor; though we might add an additional tablespoon of the marmalade the next time we make this recipe as my preference would be for a little more orange flavor. We also used semi-sweet chocolate chips rather that the milk chocolate noted in the recipe since that’s what we have on hand. I don’t think that made a huge difference in flavor because it was delicious but it probably was a little less sweet since milk chocolate is sweeter than semi-sweet.
The recipe made 8 scones and I took the leftover pieces and baked those as well (no need to waste!). We did spray the pan and they came out lightly brown on top and perfectly browned on the bottom. The scones paired nicely with a hot cup of earl gray tea and while I had it as dessert, it would be great for breakfast or afternoon tea.
