Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Scones
Makes 8 wedges
Adapted from: A Dusting of Sugar
2 very ripe bananas (you should have 1 cup when mashed. You may need another banana depending on size.)
2-4 tbsp milk
1/2 cup yogurt
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tbsp sugar
2 tsp baking powder
4 tbsp cold butter, cubed
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla extract
Mash the bananas in a bowl. Add the milk, vanilla extract and yogurt. Mix well and keep aside.
In a large bowl, sift the dry ingredients, the flour and baking sugar and add the sugar and mix well.
Rub in the cubes of cold butter till the mix resembles coarse wet sand.
Pour the banana mix into the dry ingredients and stir well until just thoroughly incorporated.
Fold in the chocolate chips, making sure they are distributed throughout the batter.
Tip the batter onto some plastic wrap. Flatten it to a disc about an inch thick and freeze for 30 minutes.
Preheat your oven to 200ºC.
Place the cooled disc onto a baking sheet that has been lined with some greased baking paper and cut into 8 equal wedges.
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.
