Instructions
  1. Scones:
  2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and place rack in center of oven.
  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  4. In a small bowl whisk together the cream or milk, egg, and vanilla extract.
  5. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  6. Using a pastry blender or two knives, cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  7. Add the cream mixture and stir just until the dough comes together (add more cream and/or flour as necessary).
  8. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead a few times.
  9. Shape the dough into a 7 inch round and cut into eight wedges. Brush excess flour from the bottom of the scones, and place on the baking sheet.
  10. Brush the tops of the scones with a little cream or milk.
  11. Bake for about 18-20 minutes or until they are firm around the edges but a bit soft in the center. (A toothpick inserted into the center of a scone will come out clean.)
  12. Cool on a wire rack.
  13. Glaze:
  14. Combine the confectioners’ sugar and coffee in a small bowl.
  15. Whisk until smooth.
  16. Pour glaze over cake.
  17. Drizzle the cake with the glaze and then let cool to room temperature before serving.
