Scones are definitely a delicious breakfast to have with coffee or tea. To elevate the traditional scone taste, I decided to add some chocolate chips to add some texture. The scones can be customized either with some raisins or dry fruit. You can also stick to the traditional plain version of scones. If you decide to make raisin scones, I recommend you soak the raisins overnight in some tea.
Either way, this recipe will allow you to have a yummy treat for your breakfast or snacks.
This recipe yields 6 medium scones, so if you want to make more, you can multiply by two or three.
You could also make a few scones ahead of time and freeze them.
