The secret to making scones—whether vegan or not—is to use very cold butter, or in this case, vegan margarine. Soy margarine works well in vegan scones, and make sure the chocolate chips you're using are dairy free as well. Making homemade vegan scones is quite simple, as this recipe shows. Plus, they're homemade, egg free, low fat, and cholesterol free.
2 cups all-purpose flour
5 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons vegan margarine, cut into pieces
1 1/2 cups vegan chocolate chips
1/3 cup soy milk
3 teaspoons egg substitute, dissolved in 1/4 cup water
1/4 cup water
Gather the ingredients.
Preheat the oven to 400 F.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, 3 tablespoons of the sugar, baking powder and the salt.
Cut in the vegan margarine.
Stir in the chocolate chips.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the soy milk and egg replacer.
Combine with dry ingredients, and stir until dough forms.
Place on a floured surface and knead a few times, then roll out into a circle about 2 inches thick. Slice like a pizza or a pie into 8 triangles.
Place the triangles on a baking sheet and sprinkle with the remaining sugar.
Bake 20 to 25 minutes until lightly golden.
- Start with very cold butter. This will produce a better texture for the scone.
