Tofu Scones

Tofu Scones

You can make delicious scones without oil or fat. The secret to a good texture and nice cracks on the side is joshinko.

Ingredients: 4 pieces (6 cm diameter)

Tofu
120 g
White flour
120 g
Joshinko
30 g
Baking powder
1.5 teaspoon
Salt
1/3 teaspoon
Sugar
1 tablespoon

Steps

1. Put all the ingredients into a bowl, and stir with a wooden spatula while mashing tofu.
2. Roll the dough out and fold 7~8 times. When done, roll out the dough into 2.5~3cm thickness, and cut the round scones out by using a glass. (decide on the thickness considering they will double in size when baked).
3. Bake in a 190℃ preheated oven for 25~30 minutes (You can also bake at 200℃ for 20 minutes).
4. Note If you would like to make them extra fluffy, use 90 g of white flour and 30 g of bread flour. If you substitute more bread flour, the crust will be softer. Play around with altering the amounts of flour for different results.
