Coco-Hazelnut Marble Cake Scones


I love scones. They're easy to make and wonderful to eat with a glass of "milk" or a cup of tea. Since the flavor possibilities are endless, I thought that making scones would be a creative way to use some of my recently acquired coconut milk creamer. The aroma of hazelnut filled the house with a heavenly fragrance while the scones were baking. They tasted divine, and I think they'll make hazelnut and chocolate lovers very happy.

Ingredients:

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
6 tablespoons Earth Balance Buttery Spread
2/3 cup So Delicious Coconut Milk Hazelnut Creamer
1/3 cup dark chocolate chips

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425° F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.

Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda in large bowl. Add Earth Balance and mix together with hands until mixture forms large, coarse crumbs the size of peas. Add chocolate chips and creamer, mix for a few more seconds until just moistened.

Turn the dough onto a lightly floured work surface and press together gently until the dough clings together in a ball. Pat into a circle about 2-inches thick and 6 inches in diameter. Let sit for 15 minutes at room temperature. Cut into 8 wedges. Sprinkle with remaining tablespoon of sugar. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden on top. Allow to cool for a few minutes, before separating wedges.

Coconut, hazelnut, and chocolate? Those scones look crazy delicious! I hope you saved me some. ;)

Yummy, yummy, yum yum. I don't drink coffee, so I was wondering what I might do with the creamer.

I just wanted to let you know that I made these scones this morning. And just as you described it, the aroma of hazelnuts wafted through the air as they were baking and made everyone hungry. No one was disappointed, because they are absolutely scrumptious! Thank you for sharing such a delicious recipe, and thanks to Turtle Mountain for making so many tasty and versatile vegan products.

It's... soy free. And it looks amazing. And it can be made with Earth Balance buttery spread, which is about the only vegan margarine that doesn't have soy in it. Or stealth whey.

Thank you.

Hope you like the Cranberry Waldorf Salad. And I will have to add your scone recipe to my recipe box. At least I can get the Coconut Milk creamers here. However, it would be nice to also get MimicCreme as well, since my fiance swears that he can taste coconut when I use milk in a recipe. He would probably say the same thing about the cream as well.

I thought my coffee would have a coconut taste as well BUT I WAS WRONG! I love this creamer. I just tried it this month and I'm sold!
