So here’s the thing…
I already have a favorite scone recipe.
I’ve been open to other types of scones, and have even made these double chocolate banana scones in the past. They were delicious. But nothing can hold a candle to the scone recipe I got from my friend’s grandmother.
These come close.
I’ll be honest…I still like my other scone recipe better most of the time. They’re very moist and cake-ier than most scones.
But these are so wonderfully different. Orange and chocolate is the perfect pairing, and my other scone recipe is way too moist to make it work. This base recipe can stand up to the orange.
And the glaze? Oh mama.
The original recipe is for vanilla and orange scones, so I paid homage to that with a vanilla-orange glaze, no chocolate. Yum! If you don’t like chocolate you are nuts, but you can leave out the chocolate chips and just made a true vanilla-orange scone.
But the chocolate chips…I’m addicted.
The glaze gives them a dose of sweetness, and it melts perfectly if you like to dunk your scones in tea or coffee. I tested this several times. Believe me, it is perfect.
I made these the night before and had to chase away my friends and family so there would be a few left over in the morning for breakfast. We ate this entire bath in less than 24 hours. We probably would have ate more. So tonight, I’m whipping up another batch….and making it a double. Maybe a triple. I’ll just tell myself that I’m putting most of them in the freezer.
Without further ado, the recipe:
