“An overhead view of a wooden table with baking ingredients neatly arranged. On the left, there is a large bowl filled with white flour, showing some cracks on the surface. To its right, a smaller bowl contains dark chocolate chips. Below these bowls, there are two smaller containers; one holds cubed butter and the other contains white granulated sugar. The arrangement of ingredients suggests preparation for baking, possibly cookies or a cake.


  1. Can I use milk instead of buttermilk?
    • Yes, but buttermilk adds a tangy flavor and tenderness to the scones. You can also make a buttermilk substitute by adding 1 tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar to 1 cup of milk and letting it sit for 5-10 minutes.
  2. Can I freeze the scones?
    • Yes, freeze the scones individually on a baking sheet, then transfer them to a freezer bag. Reheat in the oven before serving.
  3. What if I don’t have coarse sugar for topping?
    • You can use regular granulated sugar or skip this step altogether.
  4. Can I add nuts or dried fruit?
    • Absolutely! Feel free to add chopped nuts or dried fruit like cranberries or raisins for added texture and flavor.

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup cold unsalted butter cut into small cubes
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup bacon fried and cut into small pieces
  • 1 cup buttermilk cold
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon buttermilk for brushing
  • Coarse sugar for topping


Preheat Oven:

  • Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Dry Ingredients:

  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

Add Butter:

  • Add the cold, cubed butter to the dry ingredients. Use a pastry cutter or your fingers to work the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.

Add Chocolate Chips and Bacon

  • Stir in the chocolate chips and bacon until evenly distributed.

Add Wet Ingredients:

  • In a separate bowl, mix the cold buttermilk and vanilla extract. Pour the wet mixture into the dry ingredients. Use a fork or your hands to gently mix the dough until it just comes together. Be careful not to overmix.

Form the Dough:

  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Gently knead it a few times to bring it together. Pat the dough into a circle about 1 inch thick.

Cut the Scones:

  • Use a sharp knife or a bench scraper to cut the circle into 8 wedges (like a pizza). Alternatively, you can use a round biscuit cutter to cut out individual scones.

Prepare for Baking:

  • Place the scones onto the prepared baking sheet. Brush the tops with the 1 tablespoon of buttermilk and sprinkle a little coarse sugar over each scone.


  • Bake in the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes, or until the scones are golden brown on top.

Cool and Serve:

  • Allow the scones to cool on a wire rack for a few minutes before serving. Enjoy warm or at room temperature.
