Raspberry And White Chocolate Scones

These vegan raspberry white chocolate scones are light, fluffy and make a delicious addition to any afternoon tea.

Seeing as my fluffy vegan scone recipe was a big hit, I decided to make some more! Except this time, with a twist.

This time, I made vegan raspberry and white chocolate scones. They are basically like classic scones, except with chunks of fresh raspberries throughout the dough and a creamy white chocolate drizzle on top!

I served my raspberry white chocolate scones with raspberry jam and vegan whipped cream (purchased from Asda) but they are MORE than good enough to eat just the way they are. The sugar from the fruit and the white chocolate makes them super sweet anyway.

How To Make Raspberry White Chocolate Scones

Step 1:

The first step to making perfect scones is to add some all-purpose flour and baking powder into a small bowl.

Add in your vegan butter and rub it into the flour until your mixture resembles breadcrumbs. It’s important that your butter is cold at this stage as warm butter might melt slightly and make the mixture soggy.

Step 2:

Once you’ve got your breadcrumb mixture, stir in the caster sugar.

Step 3:

Next, add in your plant-based milk of choice and gently mix everything together with a fork. At this point, you want to end up with a lumpy, doughy mixture that hasn’t quite come together yet. If you’re not sure, refer to the picture below to see exactly what it should look like.

You want the mixture to be clumping together but not quite becoming a dough yet.

Step 4:

Add your fresh raspberries to the mix. Very gently use your hands to combine everything, until a dough JUST comes together. Not overworking the dough will help you get that tender scone texture that you’re after.

It’s important that you work quickly but also that you make sure to be super gentle. You want to prevent the raspberries from releasing their juices and making the dough too wet.

Step 5:

Once you’ve combined the raspberries into the dough, gently roll it out on a lightly floured surface, to about 1.5″ thick.

Using a cutter or the bottom of a glass, cut out your scone shapes. This amount of dough will make 5 large scones but you can totally double the recipe if you want more!

Step 6:

Place the scones on a lined baking tray and bake for around 25 minutes until they become light golden brown on top. Transfer them to a wire rack and allow them to cool completely.

Step 7:

What would raspberry and white chocolate scones be without some white chocolate!?

The next step is to drizzle some melted white chocolate over your cooled raspberry scones. You can add as much or as little as you like.

If you’re vegan, you can get a hold of some dairy-free white chocolate from Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Asda or Amazon. Check out my chocolate post for more.

Raspberry White Chocolate Scone Troubleshooting:

If Your Dough Is Too Wet

It’s very important to be SUPER gentle with the dough when making raspberry white chocolate scones. The juice from the raspberries will start to leak so you have to work quickly but carefully.

If you use too much pressure when combining or rolling the dough, the raspberry juices will make it go soggy!

If Your Dough Is Too Dry

Dough that is too dry may mean that you have used too much flour or might need some more milk. If your dough won’t come together, add 1 teaspoon of plant-based milk at a time until it does.

If Your Scones Didn’t Rise Properly

First of all, you’ll need to double check that your baking powder isn’t out of date. Trust me- it makes a huge difference.

Otherwise, it may be possible that you overworked the dough which would prevent it from rising quite as well.

If Your Scones Are Too Tough or Chewy

Again, you probably overworked the dough! Doh!

You want to gently press it together until it’s JUST combined and no more.

How Long Do Raspberry White Chocolate Scones Keep?

These scones will taste their very best on the day that they are baked. Each day that goes by, the scones will lose a little bit more of their flaky tenderness.

Saying that though, they will still taste fine for around 2-3 days if they are stored at room temperature in an airtight container.

Can Raspberry White Chocolate Scones Be Frozen?

They sure can. Just allow them to cool completely first, and make sure that the white chocolate has completely set.

Then, pop them in an airtight container and freeze for up to 1 month. To defrost, remove the scones from your container and allow them to sit at room temperature for an hour or two.

Again, the texture won’t be quite as nice as it will be immediately after you’ve baked them, but they’ll still be delicious!

Happy baking!
