Easy Chocolate Scones Just Like Starbucks

I felt like eating something, but there was nothing to eat. That s when I just made these scones, and they turned out quite nicely. Hence, here s a recipe to remind myself. Adding yogurt increases the puffiness of the baking powder. If you add a little bread powder, it makes the result less dry (I think). Although the scones might get more thick after it s baked, their sizes won t change, so don t overthink anything when you place them on the baking tray. When making this during the summer, try slightly reducing the liquid ingredients because it would be really humid. Recipe by tottan440


  1. 90 grams ○ Plain flour
  2. 10 grams ○ Bread flour (if unavailable use 100 g plain flour)
  3. 5 grams ○ Baking powder
  4. 1 pinch ○ Salt
  5. 30 grams Butter
  6. 25 ml △ Water
  7. 25 ml △ Milk (if unavailable use 50 ml water)
  8. 1 tbsp △ Plain yogurt
  9. 1 △ (If available) vanilla oil
  10. 1/2 Chocolate bar


  1. Put all ○ ingredients into a bowl and mix lightly with a spoon Crush the chocolate bar into pieces
  2. Melt the butter in the microwave and add into the dry ingredients Mix lightly with a spoon (dont worry if its slightly powdery) Preheat the oven to 170℃
  3. Change Add the △ ingredients and bring the dough together Hold it with both hands and knead it a few times It might feel sticky at first but it will eventually come together
  4. Mix the crushed chocolate bar into the dough and shape it into a ball Aim to scatter the chocolate evenly (take care not to knead too much as the chocolate will melt)
  5. Change Press down the dough on a cutting board and spread it out into a 15 cm-thick flattened ball Slice into eighths like a cake Place them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper
  6. Change Bake for 20-25 minutes in the oven Its done when the surface is slightly browned 180℃ might also be fine depending on the oven
  7. The resulting scones are about half the size of the scones at Starbucks If plain yogurt is unavailable add 1-2 teaspoons of vinegar or lemon juice instead
  8. I recommend keeping these scones in a paper napkin and a plastic wrap after they have slightly cooled down My personal best result was with using a half of each block of the chocolate bar
