nutella – an ingredient to prepare this delicious recipe

To prepare this delicious recipe, 15g of Nutella® per person is enough to enjoy!


Add flour to a mixing bowl. Add butter and use clean fingers to rub the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Stir in salt and Wattleseed.

Make a well in the centre, pour in 235ml of the buttermilk and stir until just combined.

Preheat oven to 200ºC (180ºC fan). Line a baking tray with baking paper.

Turn the dough out onto a clean, lightly dusted surface and knead 2-3 mins until smooth. Shape into a disc then roll out to 2cm thick. Use a 7.5cm round cookie cutter to cut 8 rounds from the dough. Arrange scones closely on the tray, brush tops with remaining milk and bake for 12-15 mins until golden. Allow to cool slightly.

Serve scones spread with 15g (1 tbsp) Nutella® per scone and an optional dollop of whipped cream.
