Ingredients

  • 2 over-ripe bananas
  • 2-4 tbsp milk
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 tbsp cold butter
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1/4 cups icing sugar

Instructions

  • Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and chocolate chips in a large bowl. Whisk together so all ingredients are combined.
  • Mash the bananas in a large measuring cup. You want the bananas to reach 1 cup. If there isn't enough mashed banana to reach 1 cup, add one tbsp of milk at a time - until you reach 1 cup.
  • Stir the sour cream into the mashed banana mixture.
  • Add the banana mixture to the dry ingredients and stir to all the ingredients are incorporated. You don't want to over stir the dough, or you will have tough scones.
  • Once the dough comes together, turn the ball of dough out and onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Shape into a large disc, about 3/4" thick. Pop the dough into the fridge for about 15-20 minutes to allow the dough to firm up.
  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • Remove the dough from the oven and slice into 8 wedges. Pull the wedges apart on the baking sheet. Make an egg wash, by whisking together the egg and water. Brush the egg wash over each scone and sprinkle with a little granulated sugar.
  • Bake the scones in the oven from 25-30 minutes, until they are golden. Set on a rack to cool. When the scones have cooled you can dust them with icing sugar - or eat them without the icing sugar.
  • Enjoy with your afternoon tea.
