Banana, Espresso, and Chocolate Chip Scones

I have been baking for breakfast for the past few months and i realized that scones are the easiest and fastest baked goods for breakfast ((:

Found this recipe for banana, coffee and chocolate chip scone that tasted so great that the guys finished everything within 2 days. You can kinda gauge how good the breakfast is by how fast the guys finish everything. :p

Banana, Espresso, and Chocolate Chip Scones

makes 8

adapted from yummly

1/3cup heavy cream
1 large egg
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
2teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon coffee powder
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/4 sticks (10 tablespoons) unsalted butter, cold and cut into small pieces
1 cup very ripe mashed bananas
2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place oven racks in top and bottom thirds of the oven. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper. 

In a small bowl, whisk cream and egg; set aside. In a large bowl, mix dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, coffee powder, and cinnamon. Add chilled butter, and mix with a pastry blender or fork until a coarse meal forms with tiny pea-sized butter pieces. Mix in bananas and chocolate chips. Add the cream mixture to the flour mixture and, using a spoon, mix until just combined. Do not over mix, or the dough will become leaden. 

Place scones (just divide the dough into 8 approximately equal parts) on parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Bake scones for 20-22 minutes, rotating pans mid-way through. Bake until puffed and golden; transfer to a rack to cool.Camera 360
