Nutella & Pear Pinwheel Scones

Alright folks - this recipe is relatively easy and I LOVE that it does not require messing with yeast! Yeast can be so temperamental sometimes.. Anyways, this recipe adds yummy nutella and delicious fresh pears to form a delectable breakfast or dessert!

  • 3 cups of flour
  • 3 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon of milk powder
  • A pinch of salt
  • 3 oz of butter (roughly 6 TBL)
  • ¼ cup of white sugar
  • 2 oz of plain yogurt
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • ¼ cup of cream
  • ¼ cup of milk
  • ¾ cup of Nutella
  • 1 large pear, peeled and grated

Preheat the oven to 410°F

In a large bowl sift together the flour, baking powder, milk powder and salt. Sift the dry ingredients twice more to ensure they are well mixed. Mix butter in until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Also add the sugar.

In another bowl, whisk together the egg, yogurt, cream and milk.

Mix together wet and dry ingredients lightly and quickly to make a soft dough, do not over mix or the scones may be tough.

On a lightly floured board or bench carefully roll out the dough to form a rectangle (or an oval in my case)

Spread the rectangle with a generous amount of Nutella and grate over the pear.

Taking up the edge closest to you gently roll the dough up to form a tight spiralled log.

Slice the log into 10 even portions and place on a baking tray leaving room for the scones to spread.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes at 410 F or until golden brown.

And there we have it! All done and chocolaty / gooey!

This is what "breakfasts" are made of!
