These have a nice flavor and good texture. I suggest putting 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg in the flour mixture: it added a soft flavor that really complemented the orange and pineapple nicely.
Bake just until done like a cake. They are then just like soft cookies and I put frosting on mine! I couldn't taste any of the coconut- mostly orange so maybe a little coconut extract next time. Very easy- i'll try some flavor variations next time.
I was very skeptical when making these scones because I've never had such "slop" to deal with in making scones. But these turned out to be the fluffiest and easiest scones I have ever made. I intend to use the recipe as a base for other flavors (these flavors were not the best for me).
Used bread flour instead of all purpose flour low-fat coconut milk and pineapple mange marmelade (made locally) instead of honey. They were fabulous--Not too doughy or too dry; slightly sweet and slightly savory. I made them for a staff breakfast a couple months ago and they were a huge hit.
While the dough is very sticky the finished product is absolutely delicious. These are tender and light. I used an ice cream scoop almost full to portion the dough. Mine needed a few extra minutes to bake but I was using AirBake cookie sheets and parchment paper. I juiced the orange after zesting and mixed some of the juice with powdered sugar to make a glaze. I added toasted coconut to a few and the combination was out of this world. (They are great as is also. Scones are often served with jam.) Thanks for a wonderful recipe!
Garam Masala Garam is the Indian word for "warm" or "hot," and this blend of dry-roasted, ground spices from the colder climes of northern India adds a sense of "warmth" to both palate and spirit. (Mentioned as an addition in another reviewers comments.)
I think these were pretty good I added some sugar and a little Garam Masala which made them much tastier. But like all recipies they are easy to change your taste. So this is a geat recipie to play with. Thank you for sharing with us.
