Chocolate Scones with Pancake Mix

Chocolate Scones with Pancake Mix

These scones seem almost too simple.... but they make a luxurious treat with milk and white chocolate that will make you feel like you're at Starbucks in your own home.

Ingredients: 8 scones

Pancake mix
200 g
Half-melted butter
30 g
Milk or water
50 ml (plus 1 tablespoon or so as needed)
Chocolate bar
1/2-1 bar
White chocolate bar
1/2-1 bar
Or you can use the same type of chocolate if you'd prefer
1 bar


1. Break up the chocolate. I broke mine up over some aluminium foil. I think the scones taste best if you have different sized chips of chocolate.
2. Partly melt the butter in the microwave. Keep an eye on it to make sure you take it out at the right time, it should take about 40 seconds in a 500 W microwave. Preheat the oven for 20 minutes to 180°C.
3. Pour the melted butter into the pancake mix and give the mixture a quick stir with a spatula. Then pour in the milk, mix again, and add the chocolate.
4. Lastly, gather the dough into a ball with your hand.
5. Roll the dough out to 2 cm thick on a sheet of parchment paper and cut into 8 equal pieces with a knife.
6. Put some space between each scone and bake in the oven.
7. This "Moist Chocolate Cake with Pancake Mix & Yogurt" (Recipe ID: 2118177) uses only 4 ingredients and is butter and oil-free.

Story Behind this Recipe

I was in a rush, so I melted the butter in the microwave but these scones still turned out pretty nicely. They're a bit different from English scones and rather remind me of the ones you can buy at Starbucks.
This recipe uses only a little butter. You could make it with oil instead.
