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.
