Can I just say that I was kind of on the fence about posting these?

Because . . . . well . . . . they  . . . . ummmm . . . .

 . . . . .

They just didn’t photograph the way I’d like them too.

And you know how with the anonymity of the internet . . . I can only imagine what people are going to say about these babies.

BUT THEY’RE SO GOOD!

Gavin, who assumes that anything I make for the blog won’t be good (#totatllyweirdkid #howcanheresistthesugar #switchedatbirth?) loves scones, so he was immediately sold on the idea of trying these, and he LOVED them!

My friend Dorothy makes her scones with pudding mix, which gives them a moistness that a traditional scone doesn’t necessarily have. When you add in the zucchini, they are especially moist. And then I added some cinnamon which makes them just dreamy. If your chocolate craving is especially high, you could add more chocolate chips, I just only had 1/2 a cup on hand. #foodbloggerproblems

Aren’t you so happy?? Now you can add something to your list of what to do with ALL the zucchini that pops up in your garden this summer AND you can have chocolate for breakfast.

You’re welcome.

Chocolate Zucchini Scones

(tap # to scale)

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 TBSPs sugar
  • 1 TBSP baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 6 TBSPs cold unsalted butter diced
  • 1 small box of instant chocolate fudge pudding mix
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup half and half
  • 1 cup shredded zucchini
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
  • Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and Cinnamon.
  • Cut in the cold butter until the dough is crumbly.
  • Gently stir in the pudding mix, chocolate chips, and the zucchini.
  • Make a small well in the center of the mixture, and add the egg and the half and half. Stir until just combined. Then finish bringing the dough together with your hands. (The dough will be pretty wet and sticky.)
  • Pour the dough out onto a large cutting board. Divide the dough in two, and make two small rounds. Then slice each round into 8 equal pieces for a total of 16 small scones.
  • Bake on parchment paper or a Silpat for 10 to 12 minutes.

    This is definitely a recipe I will add to my arsenal of zucchini season recipes!
    Also, your pictures look great! But I totally understand the feeling of not being happy with the photos. I have a super delicious recipe I really want to post on my blog but the cheesecake I made just doesn’t look that great in the pics (even though it was so yummy!) and now the cheesecake is gone :(

  2. Shirl says

    I am always looking for a good way to use all my zucchini . I am going to put this on my list to try

  3. Stephanie says

    Making these now… can you tell me the measurement of the half and half. Calls for 1/2 ???

    Thank you.

    • Lisa Longley says

      My apologies Stephanie! It’s 1/2 a cup.
