Blackberry mango scones (with chocolate chips!)

blackberry mango scones

After reading too many tweets from a local coffee shop about what the scone of the day was, I decided enough was enough. They turned out to be a great way to use up a bunch of fruit that wasn’t bad yet, but I probably wasn’t going to sit down and eat. And that greek yogurt too… (I have previously described my lack of refined taste regarding yogurty tasting yogurt). I based this recipe off the one I found on Taste of Home, instead of using orange juice, I used milk, though I have to say it required more than 1/4 cup.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp cold butter
  • 1/2 mango, chopped
  • 1/3 cup blackberries, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (depending on your taste)
  • 3/4 cup yogurt
  • 1/3 cup milk

Directions

  1. In a bowl, combine the dry ingredients (flour, 1/3 cup sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt)
  2. Cut in butter until crumbly
  3. Put in the chopped fruit and chocolate chips into the dry mixture
  4. In a large bowl, whisk the yogurt and milk
  5. Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture until juuuust mixed
  6. Turn onto a floured surface; knead 10 times.
  7. Separate into scone mounds or put all of the dough on a greased cookie sheet as a circle and then score with a knife
  8. Sprinkle with remaining sugar.
  9. Bake at 400° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm. Yield: 8 servings.
