  • Ingredients

    2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (560 mL)

    3 Tbsp granulated white sugar (45 mL)

    2 Tbsp instant espresso powder (30 mL)

    1 Tbsp baking powder (15 mL)

    ½ tsp nutmeg (2 mL)

    ½ tsp salt (2 mL)

    1/3 cup non-hydrogenated canola margarine (75 mL)

    2 eggs lightly beaten (2)

    1/3 cup milk (75 mL)

    1 cup toffee chips (250 mL)

    1 Tbsp milk (15 mL)

    1 tsp coarse white sugar (5 mL)


    ¼ cup icing sugar (60 mL)

    2 Tbsp maple syrup (30 mL)

  • Directions
    1. Preheat oven to 425 °F (220°C).
    2. In a large mixing bowl combine flour, sugar, espresso powder, baking powder, nutmeg and salt. With a pastry blender or two butter knives, cut in margarine until mixture resembles course crumbs.
    3. Stir in eggs, 1/3 cup (75 mL) of milk, and toffee chips into flour mixture and mix lightly.
    4. Turn out onto lightly floured counter and knead about 5 times. Pat into a circle about ¾ inch (2 cm) thick. Cut into 8 wedges and place slightly apart on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
    5. Brush each wedge with milk and sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until browned.
    6. Place scones on wire rack to cool with piece of waxed paper or parchment paper beneath to catch drippings from glaze.


    1. In a small bowl mix together icing sugar and maple syrup until smooth. When scones have cooled, drizzle glaze over each scone using a fork. Allow glaze to harden before serving.
