Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 180Β°c and line a large baking tray with parchment.
  • Add the self raising flour to a bowl, add the butter in small cubes to the bowl and rub together using your fingertips until fine breadcrumb texture.
  • Add the orange zest, honey, orange juice and milk to the bowl, mix with a spoon until just coming together, then use your hands to bring the dough together.
  • Add the chocolate chips and knead into the dough until evenly distributed.
  • Shape the dough into a large circular disc and place on the prepared baking tray.
