DIRECTIONS

  • Sieve the flour, baking powder, sugar and cocoa powder into a large bowl.
  • Make a well in the centre of the dry mix and pour in the beaten egg.
  • Using a wooden spoon, beat the egg, gradually drawing in the flour. Add the milk a little at a time, while continuously mixing, until a smooth batter is achieved.
  • Add the melted butter.
  • Melt half the extra butter in a heavy-based frying pan and drop spoonfuls of the batter in the pan.
  • Cook for 1 minute or so, until bubbles begin to rise to the surface.
  • Flip over, and cook for 1-2 minutes.
  • Repeat for the rest of the scones.
  • Warm the cherry compote in a small pan.
  • Serve the scones with the warm compote and thick cream.
