The Perfect Brunch Treat!
Good morning and happy Friday to you! Today is your lucky day, I’m sharing one of my FAVORITE brunch recipes with you today. As you know I am a massive fan of Bhakti Chai tea and pretty much have a cup of their tea just about everyday, so when they asked me to whip up a recipe that would be perfect for a Mother’s Day Brunch I thought, I have just the thing!!! Chai Tea Scones, yum! There are so many ways to make these, and I realized after they were in the oven that I bet they would be good with some lemon or orange zest and possibly some dark chocolate chips. So if I were you I’d whip up this super easy and quick recipe and play around with the recipe… i.e. add chocolate.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- ⅓ cup brown sugar
- 2 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- ⅛th tsp ground nutmeg
- ⅛th tsp ground ginger
- 6 Tbsp cold butter, cut into small chunks
- ⅔ cup Bhakti Chai Tea concentrate
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with wax paper or a silicone liner; if using wax paper, mist the paper lightly with cooking spray; set aside.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and spices until combined. Using two forks or a pastry blender, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs or begins to look sandy. Create a well in the center of the mixture.
- Add the tea concentrate, egg and vanilla and begin mixing until a soft dough forms; do NOT over mix -- this will create a tough scone. Pat the dough into an 8" round circle onto the prepared baking sheet. Lightly score the dough into 8 wedges using the tip of a knife.
- Bake the scones for about 15-20 minutes or until golden brown and fragrant. Allow the scones to cool completely on the pan before cutting them completely along the score lines.
- Let us know if you try out the recipe! Share a photo on social media with #cookingwithABD & @ashleybrookedesigns

P.S. Mom and Joy (my mother-in-law) if you are reading this, do not read any further!!! I’m serious!
P.P.S. My mom and my mother-in-law are both totally getting a tin of Bhakti Chai’s tea bags tied up with a bow along with a tin of homemade scones and one of our sweet mugs! I may even throw in a hand written recipe card with the instructions on how to whip these scones up! Sounds like the perfect gift, doesn’t it?!
