Scones Made With Yeast & Avocado

Scones Made With Yeast & Avocado

These are vegan scones that use yeast and are proved in the refrigerator.

Ingredients: 6 scones

Whole wheat cake flour
120 g
Strong bread flour
30 g
Beet sugar
15 g
Salt
2 g
Avocado
1 small
Dry yeast
1/4 teaspoon
Water (for the yeast)
1 teaspoon
Almonds
8 (chopped into your preferred size)
White chocolate
Equal to almonds (chopped to preferred size)

Steps

1. Mash the avocado with a fork. Sprinkle with a few drops of lemon juice to prevent the avocado changing color too much.
2. Dissolve 1 teaspoon of dry yeast in the water.
3. Combine the flour, beet sugar, and salt and add to the yeast mixture from Step 2.
4. Add the mashed avocado, almonds, and white chocolate to the mixture and fold in.
5. When everything is mixed together, press the mixture down with a bench scraper and cut it in half.
6. Place one half of the dough on top of the other and flatten down once again with the bench scraper. Repeat this step several times to create some layers.
7. Shape the dough into a 2 cm thick rectangle, wrap in cling film, and place in the fridge.
8. Leave the dough in the fridge for over 8 hours. Take it out and cut it into 6 portions.
9. Preheat the oven to 240°C. Turn the heat down to 230°C and bake for 15 minutes.
10. This is how the scones should look when cut.

Story Behind this Recipe

I wanted to try making some scones that contain no oil. They aren't very sweet, so try serving them with honey if you like.
