Subtly Sweet, Easy-to-Make Scones

An easy recipe using ingredients you probably already have at home.
No need for eggs, and you can use soy milk in place of milk if you prefer. These are good for those with food allergies.

Ingredients: About 1 baking sheet worth

Cake flour
200 g
Baking powder
2 teaspoons
5 tablespoons (for a sweet flavor), 1 and 1/2 tablespoons (for a low-sugar flavor)
a pinch
Vegetable oil
30 g
Milk (or soy milk)
70 to 80 ml (to taste)
Maple syrup or honey
2 tablespoons


1. Place bowl on scale, then measure in dry ingredients.
2. Mix together vigorously with a whisk. Put it back on the scale, add 30 g vegetable oil, then knead.
3. Add milk and maple syrup, then knead some more. Fold the dough in half inside the bowl, and repeat several times.
4. Roll out to 2.5 cm, then cut out circles with a cup.
5. Bake in oven for 11 to 12 minutes at 200℃. You can also use a oven as long as you keep your eye on them. Cover with aluminum foil if they look like they are about to burn.

Story Behind this Recipe

This is an easy scone I've been baking since I was a newlywed.
I now make them often as a snack for my children.
If you plan to serve them as is, use more sugar, or if you plan to serve them with jam, use less.
This recipe is good for those with food allergies, since it doesn't require eggs, and you can substitute soy milk for milk.
