Coconut Scones

Hello everyone ūüôā I’ve been experimenting with Scones lately. ¬†I altered the BBC recipe a bit to make coconut scones. ¬†I had to make these twice as I was unsure of the amount of coconut to put in it. ¬†The first go, ¬†I used 50g of coconut. ¬†The second go, I increased it a bit to suit my¬†palette¬†more!


I tried different shapes, just for fun!

B’s Coconut Scones

Bakes: About 12 small scones, but I made some big funky shapes instead.


  • 225g Self Raising Flour
  • 55g Butter
  • 50g Caster Sugar
  • 75g Fine¬†Desiccated¬†Coconut
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 150ml milk


  1. Preheat oven to 220C.
  2. Mix together the flour, salt and rub the butter. Make sure the butter is cold.  This ensures softer scones.
  3. Add in the coconut and sugar.  Mix in the milk and knead lightly to a dough.
  4. Move to a floured surface and cut the shapes required.
  5. Brush with milk.
  6. Bake for about 13 minutes, till golden on the top.
  7. Serve with butter. ¬†ūüôā

I personally like this the best with just butter as you can then appreciate the taste of the coconut.  I raised the amount of sugar in this recipe as a result.  As served with butter, it should be a bit sweeter than a normal scone that is served with jam.

YES, the FOODIE thought about it properly!  Give it a go. You know you want to!
