BAKED Sunday Mornings: Nutella Scones

So I got two new baking cookbooks recently, and I had started baking my way through them when I “heard” about a bloggy baking group that was going to do the same thing: BAKED Sunday Mornings.  The recipes are all from BAKED: Explorations, which is actually the second book from these authors.

The first recipe was Nutella Scones.

To be honest, I’m not much of a scone eater.  Or baker.  These looked appealing in the cookbook as they were chocolate, therefore, they must be better than regular scones.

And, even more interesting: there were hazelnuts.  I’ve never toasted and skinned hazelnuts before, so that was fun.  Sort of.  Most of the skins came off easily, but I had about 15 hazelnuts with stubborn skins.

The recipe was easy enough to follow, but I found it to be too dry.  I still had powdery dough and had to add about another 1/4 of cream to get a dough that came together.

They smelled awesome while they baked – chocolatey and nutty.


I did eat mine with extra Nutella on top.  However, I don’t think this is a recipe I’ll repeat.  Scones just aren’t my thing.  I’m looking forward to the next recipe, though!

  1. I had some hazelnuts with stubborn skins as well. Adding a bit of extra cream never hurts! I agree with adding the extra Nutella on top – so good!

  2. I really like scones, but these taught me that I’m not totally in love with chocolate ones. I’m glad to be doing the bakealong, tho!

  3. You’d never know you were not a scone eater OR baker – these look great! True – some people just don’t like scones – no matter if there’s chocolate or not. Nicely done!

  4. Scones are definitely my thing, and these look really good. You made me buy the book. See how I blame it on you? Thank you:)
