I love scones, you can eat them anytime of the day, top them with loads of different things, they are easy to make and freeze well, what’s not to love! I already have a recipe on the site for scones but it contains dairy free yoghurt and egg, while they make a great scone a lot of my followers can’t eat eggs and dairy free yoghurt isn’t available at the drop of a hat.
That inspired me to start thinking about a gluten and dairy free recipe that tasted just as good but didn’t contain the yoghurt or egg. I’m also experimenting with some different flavours of scones and this recipe is my first shot away from traditional fruit scones, I hope you like the chocolate and orange combination. I enjoyed mine filled with dairy fee lemon curd to continue the zesty theme!
If you want a plain scone just remove the zest and grated chocolate or if you want a fruit scone you can add in 100g of sultanas.
