I have had a revelation. If you add cocoa powder AND chunks of chocolate to baked goods, you can make anything double chocolate! This may sound ridiculous to all of you experienced bakers but it never occurred to me to add cocoa powder to things, even though I never forget to add chocolate chunks. The impetus of this revelation was a combination of two amazing recipes. First, this chocolate granola, and second, this chocolate banana bread. For any chocolate lovers out there, both of these recipes are a must. Now, so are these scones.
I’m feeling pretty nostalgic about my time in London lately. It hasn’t been the easiest transition to Calgary so I often find myself thinking about the places and people that I miss. I always think back fondly to my time in the U.K. I didn’t eat out much when I was there but one of the foods that London introduced me to were scones. I had never had a scone before living there, and I waited until just before I left to try one. The strawberries and cream scones were delicious and ever since then I have tried so many different varieties.
