Chocolate Chip Scone Cake

Summer has arrived – yippee, and coinciding with the school holidays and a break from work – what could be better! 30 degree heat isn’t the kind of weather to be baking cupcakes – so here is an alternative for those hot days, a Chocolate Chip Scone Cake.

Essentially the same as individual scones but baked in a scored round for visual effect. These scones travel much better than cake and so will be perfect on our sunny days out.

Serve with dairy-free spread/butter, jam and/or whipped dairy-free cream.

My aim is to recreate any dish, even what seems impossible, but free of the ingredients we can't have, and log my exploits here. Please browse what is now several hundred recipes. All the recipes posted (unless stated) are my own creations.
