Serves: 8


  • 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 2⁄3 cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. sodium-free baking powder
  • 5 Tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 5 oz. light coconut milk
  • Juice and grated zest of 1 fresh lemon


  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment and set aside.
  • Measure the flour, sugar, and baking powder into a mixing bowl and whisk well to combine.
  • Cut the butter into small pieces and work into the mixture using your hands. Once the mixture resembles coarse crumbs, stir in the coconut milk, lemon juice, and grated zest.
  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and pat into a large round, roughly 9 inches in diameter. Using a long, sharp knife, cut the dough across into 8 equal wedges. Transfer wedges to the baking sheet.
  • Place pan on middle rack in oven and bake for 12 minutes. Remove from oven and transfer scones to a wire rack to cool.
