Coconut Milk Scones - Vegan (Art of Dessert)
Makes 8-12 scones
See the original here....great photos.
2 C all-purpose flour (I used whole wheat)
1/3 C sugar (Rapadura)
1 T baking powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp. orange zest (opt - or use vanilla or lemon zest)
1 1/4 C canned coconut milk (cold)
1 C dried fruit (I used cranberries)
Preheat oven to 425*.
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Pour in coconut milk. Gently mix with a wooden spoon until just combined. Fold in fruit (or chocolate chips etc).
Move dough onto a floured surface and shape into a circle about 3/4 in in thickness. Cut into 3 or 12 wedges. Place on greased baking sheet 2 inches apart. Brush top with coconut milk and sprinkle with sugar.
Bake for 15-20 min or until golden brown. Serve warm or store in a container after they are completely cooled.
I planned on making 1/2 with craisins and 1/2 with chocolate...but got distracted and mixed it all together. Stacia and I like them. These are not as cakey as I'd like....but then I used 100% whole wheat and that will make things dry....maybe I'll add a bit more milk next time.
