How to make scone bread

  1. Line an 8 x 4-inch loaf pan with parchment paper and oil, allowing some of the paper to hang over the sides of the pan.
  2. In a large bowl, add the almond paste and chocolate together. Set aside.
  3. In a food processor or in a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Add the butter cubes and pulse (or mix with wooden spoon), until the butter is mixed in and dough has a crumbly texture.
  4. Add dough to the marzipan and chocolate and mix until ingredients are evenly mixed in.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, cream, orange zest, vanilla, and almond, then pour over the dry ingredients. Use a wooden spoon to stir dough thoroughly.
  6. Spread the mixture into the loaf pan. Top loaf with remaining sugar, almonds, and chocolate chips. Bake!
  7. The top will be firm and a deep golden brown color. When pressed, the loaf will be firm.
  8.  
  9. Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes, then remove from the pan via the parchment wings and carefully cut and serve warm—be warned that the bread tends to crumble like a scone.
