Date Scones

I really liked this recipe, which is what I based the scones off. However I thought they would benefit from some chocolate taste and rye flour.



  • 1 C Rye Flour
  • ¾ C + 2 T Flour
  • 2 T Ovomaltine
  • ½ t Salt
  • 2 t Baking Powder
  • ½ t Nutmeg
  • 2 T Brown Sugar
  • 5 T Cubed Butter
  • 2/3 C Milk
  • ¾ C Pitted and Sliced Dates


  1. Heat oven to 400°F/200°C.
  2. Mix together the flours, hot chocolate, salt, baking powder, nutmeg and brown sugar with a whisk.
  3. Next add the butter. Use your hands to combine it well with the flour-mixture.
  4. Add in the milk and combine until a nice dough is formed.
  5. On a floured surface, make the dough into a thick line about 5 inches in width. Put the dates along this line and fold the dough over them.
  6. Cut this rope into 8 equal pieces and shape them into small triangles
  7. Place these on a baking pan with a nonstick sheet under them. Bake for 15 minutes.
  8. Enjoy with Nutella, Ovomaltine spread, or something chocolatey.
