These scones make me emotional. Not because they have any sentimental value to them, necessarily, but because I look at them and feel simultaneously:
- Guilty for making them chock-full of chocolate chips, raspberries, and coconut. And I mean chock. full.
- Impatient because I have to take photos of them first before eating them.
- Excited because I can’t deal with how ready I am to eat one (two? three…?)
- Happy with the way they turned out, because I was worried that the coconut milk wouldn’t be thick/fat enough for the recipe.
Long story short, these scones are magical. Not too sweet (the sweetness comes from the semi-sweet chocolate chips), perfectly tart (fresh raspberries), and delightfully coconutty. Is coconutty a word? Pretty sure it isn’t.
New development: I purchased a kitchen scale and have totally converted (haha… measuring joke) to measuring by weight instead of by volume. The precision is just so much better and I’ve noticed a change in my results.
250 g all-purpose flour
28 g white granulated sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
85 g unsalted butter, cut into small pieces (cold)
170 g raspberries, frozen
85 g semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla
75 ml full-fat coconut milk
1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Whisk dry ingredients together in a bowl.
2. Using a pastry cutter or your hands, work butter into the flour mixture until incorporated.
3. Add raspberries and chocolate chips to the mix. Toss slightly, but don’t overmix, otherwise the raspberries will melt and stain the batter.
4. Whisk egg, vanilla, and coconut milk together in a separate bowl.
5. Add egg mixture into the rest of the ingredients. Use a spatula to mix together.
6. Dump mixture onto a greased, foil-lined tray and mold into a round disc. Cut into 8 wedges and slightly separate the wedges from each other.
7. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown and no longer sticky.
