Double chocolate scones

This week I came on to Clever Muffin, clicked on Recipe Index and was puzzled when I couldn’t find this recipe. This recipe, as in the one I’m currently writing, which I’m going to go out and say is game-changing for me.

Apple and gingerbread

See all those pieces of apple, pecan and ginger in that pic? And can you see how moist and buttery the bread is? Yea, that’s going to be a taste explosion in your mouth. If you like ginger, this one is for you.
