I love scones. I love light fluffy scones.
Those big heavy scones do nothing for me. In fact if they are too big I find I am just put off.
I decided to try something new and work on a dairy free scone. I substitutd almond milk for my normal dairy milk and used a sunflower oil based spread. Here are the results
I am afraid there was very little rise and the texture was rather dense. So Wicklow ICA ladies, you have nothing to fear from me when it comes to the scone baking competition.
These scones turned out more like biscuits and perhaps with the inclusion of grated citrus rind they make a good biscuit. So a happy accident as I now have a new recipe for biscuits.
