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 chocolate chips
1/3 cup soy milk
3 teaspoons egg replacer, 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.
