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.

  1. 2 cups all-purpose flour
  2. ⅓ cup brown sugar
  3. 2 tsp baking powder
  4. ½ tsp baking soda
  5. ½ tsp salt
  6. 1 tsp cinnamon
  7. ⅛th tsp ground nutmeg
  8. ⅛th tsp ground ginger
  9. 6 Tbsp cold butter, cut into small chunks
  10. ⅔ cup Bhakti Chai Tea concentrate
  11. 1 egg
  12. 1 tsp vanilla extract
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Enjoy!

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?!
