Choc Custard Scones
2 cups self raising flour, sifted
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cut into pieces
1 chocolate bar such as Cadbury Flake
1 cup chocolate chips
500g thick custard
3/4 cup milk
Preheat oven to 400F (200 C) degrees. Fill a muffin tray with muffin cake cases.
In a large bowl, mix the flour, sugar and salt. Cut the butter into small pieces and blend into the flour mixture. The mixture should look like coarse crumbs. Stir in the chocolate chips. Add milk to the flour mixture. Stir until the dough comes together (add more milk if necessary). Do not over-mix the dough.
Transfer mixture to a lightly floured surface and knead dough gently. Roll into a long sausage shape. Divide dough into 12 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a ball. Form each ball into a cup shape and place in muffin cake cases. Make sure that each cup is pressed down so it isn't thick (should be about 1 inch wide).
Bake for about five minutes then remove from oven. Using the end of a spoon, shape the cup again so that it still has a hole in the middle of it. Return to oven. Cook for a further five minutes, or until cooked through. Remove from oven and leave to cool.
Once cool, fill scones with custard using a small spoon. If desired, top with broken chocolate pieces. You can also warm it up in the microwave or oven if you wish.
