Dinnertime Okara Scones

Dinnertime Okara Scones

These scones are not sweet, so you can serve them instead of bread. I added just enough okara (soy bean pulp) so that the scone crust doesn't become too heavy and coarse. These go with many dishes.

Ingredients: An easy to make amount

*Fresh okara
70 g
*Cake flour
30 g
*Bread (strong) flour
100 g
*Baking powder
5 g
Salted butter
30 g
△Sugar (I used beet sugar)
20 g
1 (about 50 g without the shell)
△Soy milk
40 to 50 g ※ 90 to 100 g combined with with the egg


1. Cut the butter into small dices and chill well.
2. Add the sugar to the △ liquid (egg + soy milk) and mix well.
3. Mix the * floury ingredients together with a whisk.
4. Put the diced and chilled butter from step 1 in a food processor. Add the floury ingredients from step 3 and process to mix.
5. Add the step 2 liquid ingredients, and pulse the food processor just until the dough comes together in one mass.
6. If you have extra time, wrap the dough in plastic and let it rest for about 30 minutes to make it easier to form.
7. You can also make the dough a day in advance so that you can just form and bake it in the morning.
8. Preheat the oven for 20 minutes at 190°C.
9. Put the dough on a floured work surface. Roll it out in both directions and fold it over; repeat 4-5 times. Form into a square that's about 2 cm thick.
10. Cut up the dough in any way you like, and bake in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes.
11. If the scones get cold, warm them up in a oven to revive the crispy texture on the outside, fluffy-soft texture on the inside.

Story Behind this Recipe

I wanted to make simple scones that could be made easily and could be served with all kinds of dishes. I had some people try them, and even people who don't like okara liked these, so I uploaded the recipe.
