Oil can replace dairy fats in many baking recipes such as this.
Baking powder, vegetable oil and yoghurt are the ingredients that produce a soft, flaky scone. To make the tops browner, brush the scones with milk or oil before baking. To add more flavour, include 2 tablespoons of finely chopped ham, chives or mild chillies in the batter. Scones freeze well so it's well worth making a double batch and storing some for later.
I instinctively knew 1 tablespoon of baking powder couldn't be right. But I stayed with the recipe anyway. Guess what they came out taking of baking powder and inedible. - 05 Feb 2017
