Really Good Vegan Raisin Scones

What you need: 

2 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon turbinado sugar
1/4 cup margarine, softened
1/2 cup raisins
3/4-1 cup nondairy milk

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Mix dry ingredients together. Cut in margarine until crumbles form.
2. Stir in milk and raisins. Drop a spoonful (or make them into cute shapes, like the hearts I made this morning) onto an ungreased baking sheet.
3. Bake for about 10-12 minutes, or until just brown on top.
Source of recipe: I adapted these from a biscuit recipe on this website; I am sure one could play with the spices/ flavorings here. Please let me know how they turn out!

My first attempt at scones...  And they were awesome!  I added in raisins, cranberries, sliced almonds, used 1/2 whole wheat flour and 1/2 white flour, and sprinkled the tops with turbinado sugar before popping them into the oven.  I would totally make these again!  They were warm and soft when they came out of the oven but great the next day with a crispy outside too...  Go make these now!   :D

i made these for my family today. i used choco chips instead of raisins cause i was scared they wouldnt be good.  i dont know if ive ever had a scone before.  they are kinda boring.  in between a biscuit and a cookie, especially with chocolate. my fam  said they were very good and didnt question their ingredients. they were very simple to make. i used 3/4 C vanilla soymilk and the batter was plenty wet enough.  i wonder if they need so much baking powder as they dont rise very much anyway. oh i also sprinkled some turbinado on top of each of one to make it pretty.  i spooned out small blobs and got 16. simple and good for potlucks in the morning.

These are really great! I halved the recipe and made them with Sugar Lite, and they turned out tasty (especially with honey).

I had never made scones before and they still turned out great.  I added 1/2 cup walnuts, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 more Tbs sugar, 2 tsps cinnamon, and used golden raisins.  And I actually used  half garbanzo bean flour...not exactly on purpose, but I was out of whole wheat.  If you like grabanzo bean flour, give it a try, but I will probably stick with white and whole wheat next time. Definitely throw in any extra ingredients you like, anything will work well with this recipe.

I made these again, trying my idea to break the batch and make different flavors at once. I broke it up into 5 portions, making them with the following flavors:
- cinnamon (1tsp cinnamon)
- cranberry (2 tbsp dried cranberries)
- chocolate (2 tsp cocoa powder)
- coconut (1/4 cup shredded coconut)
- poppy seed (1-2 tbsp poppy seeds and 1 tbsp sugar)
Each flavor made two small scones (I shaped them in triangles this time which makes them look nice).
As usual, I made this with 3/4 cup  plain (WildWood) soy yogurt with water added to make a cup and 1 tsp vanilla extract stirred in. I didn't have margarine this time so I added an extra 1/4 tsp salt and used palm fat shortening instead. I also used 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour and 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour.
I haven't tried all the flavors but the coconut is excellent!

Really good recipe.  It's a good basic recipe that you can do lots with.  I made them this evening for a little snack with some tea.  I had a craving for something laden with carbs (not into that whole low carb thing).  They turned out well.  I did sprinkle a dash of demerra sugar on top of each before baking for a little extra treat.

***I don't know if the other review made it or not, so I'll do it here.  I added cinnamon, vanilla, cranberries, and vegan carob chips.  Delicious!!  Also, this recipe can be made using 1/3 cup applesauce in place of the margarine. If you do this, you'll need to add about 1/4 cup more soy milk for moisture.  Fantastic recipe!!  I will be using this often.  My photo is included.

These are wonderful! I didn't have soymilk at home so I used some leftover soy yogurt thinned with a little water. I also used cranberries instead of raisins because I don't like raisins. I added some coconut flakes that went really well with the cranberries. I also added a tsp of vanilla extract in the dough. My scones got a little big (it made 6 scones instead of 8 to 10) so I added a couple of minutes to the baking time.

this is by far one of my favorite vegan baking recipes out there! i make them all the time (i just ate one even!). i like adding some cinnamon and currents, delish. i've also made blueberry scones that turned out great. i sub the vegan butter with canola oil and they turn out just fine. i make 8 HUGE scones with this recipe.
