Ingredients 

For the Scones

  • 260 gr All Purpose-flour
  • 70 gr Granulated White Sugar
  • 20 gr Cocoa Powder
  • 9 gr Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 90 gr Cold Butter, cut into small cubes
  • 150 gr Fresh Blueberries
  • 1 Large Egg, lightly beaten
  • 125 ml Milk
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract

For the Streusel Topping

  • 40 gr All Purpose-flour
  • 50 gr Fine Brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 30 gr Cold Butter, cut into small cubes

How To Make It

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 C (400F). Put the baking sheet over the baking pan, set aside.
  2. For the Scones : Whisk flour, cocoa powder, sugar, and salt in a bowl. Add the cold butter that has been cut into small cubes to the dry mixture & mix it well (you can use your hand, pastry blender, etc.). After a while the mixture should look like crumbs. Then gently fold in the fresh blueberries. 
  3. In a seperate bowl whisk the beaten egg with milk & vanilla extract. Then add this mixture to the flour mixture, keep mixing it until the dough comes together (do not over mix or the scone will be too tough).
  4. Roll out the dough to a lightly floured surface & gently knead the dough about 5 times. Then put the dough into a circle form. Then cut it into 6 pie-shapped wedges (triangles). Place the scone on the baking sheet. Brush the top with a little bit milk or heavy cream.
  5. For the Streusel : Whisk flour, brown sugar  & cinammon. Then add the cold butter that has been cut into small cubes to the dry mixture & mix it well (you can use your hand, pastry blender, etc) after a while the mixture should look crumbly. Take about 1-2 tsp the streusel & pour it on top of the scones.
  6. Bake the scones for about 20-25 minutes or until it come a nicely brown color. Insert a toothpick in the center of the scones & if it is upright & comes out clean then it is done. Transfer it to a wire rack & let it cool. 
  7. It is best if you eat it at the same day they are made, but it is also can be restored for a few days in the refrigerator.
Enjoy! En Guete! Selamat Makan!
