We don't drink milk in our house so i am often stuck without milk - recently i was having people for breakfast and wanted to make fresh scones. I substituted the milk with yoghurt and they were the best tasting scones i have ever made - light and fluffy. Makes about 10-12.
You can add chopped dates for date scones or raisins. They are nice and fluffy due to the yoghurt. Experiment with other fruits if you wish such as blueberries or cherries.
Wow - these are the best scones ever. Something about the yoghurt and lime zest made it really come together. Very light and fluffy. At first, I thought the dough was a bit too moist, but I resisted adding more flour, which was definitely the right decision. The scones were all eaten within 15 minutes. - 03 Apr 2015
Well that was useful. Yoghurt is just fermented milk. You're substituting milk for milk. - 27 Nov 2014
- Scones are best the day you make them served warm. I will never worry about not having milk again as yoghurt tastes so much better. - 12 Feb 2013
