Ingredients

  • 8 oz Self raising flour
  • 1 oz Dairyfree Margarine Pure sunflower spread
  • 1 oz Sugar
  • 1/4 pint liquid - 1 small pot of natural coconut yoghurt + extra dairyfree milk (to make up to 1/4 pint total)
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 2 oz Dried Fruit

Instructions

  • Firstly we weighed the flour, then rubbed in the butter with our fingertips.
  • Then we poured in the sugar. After that we put some dried fruit in. The dried fruit I used was cranberries, raisins and chopped up dates.
  • Next we made a well in the middle and poured in a small pot of coconut natural yoghurt and some coconut milk.
  • (Mummy Peacock says… you might need to add more Koko milk to the mixture if the dough is dry – add a tablespoon at a time until the dough is soft but not sticky!)
  • We used my new spatula (birthday present from Nanny & Grumpto stir it and make a soft dough.

  • We put the dough on a board (mummy had floured it first!) and splatted it gently with our hands (about an inch-ish thick).
  • Then we used my new star cutter to cut it into star shapes.
  • I put them on a baking tray, brushed them with a bit of coconut milk and sprinkled over some sugar!
  • They baked for 15-2omins at 200C and were yummy with Nanny’s home-made jam on top!

Notes

*Mummy Peacock says… we use the Coconut Collaborative’sfollow 120g pot of Natural Yoghurt. It is thick and creamy and when the lime juice is added it acts a lot like buttermilk to give really light and fluffy scones! When baked the scones have a mild coconut taste so if you want more coconut flavour add 1oz of dessicated coconut after you have rubbed the margarine and flour together! (The flavour also makes this yoghurt the perfect alternative to cream cheese in a cream cheese frosting – just add a bit of lemon juice!)
