orange marmalade scones

*** These scones are American style, so please don't get mad at me, my lovely British friends. ***

What's the difference between American and British scones? Wow, I'm so glad you asked!

American scones generally have a lot more going on (chocolate chips, flavors, etc...) and are happily served with a glaze or a little bit of butter, whereas British scones are more plain (but still super tasty) and are often served with cream and jam.

Both, however, are equally delicious!

Makes 6 scones


2 cups all-purpose flour

2 tsp baking powder

pinch salt

2 Tbsp sugar

⅓ cup milk (I use vegan Mylk, but you can use any milk or milk alternative)

¼ cup shortening, cut into small pieces (I use plant-based butter, but you can use regular butter or vegetable shortening)

¼ cup orange marmalade

pinch of salt (omit this if you use salted butter/shortening)

extra tablespoon of milk and marmalade

Optional: 1 teaspoon cinnamon


1. Preheat oven to 350ºF (160ºC fan forced) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. Add all ingredients to a large bowl and mix with a fork until mixture becomes shaggy. Begin to mix with your hands until mixture forms a lumpy dough. Don't over-mix!

3. Press the dough together to form a disk and set on a cutting board.

4. Cut dough into 6 wedges and place on parchment paper.

5. Brush scones lightly with milk, then with marmalade.

6. Bake for 15 minutes, then check every 5 minutes until scones are a light golden brown.

7. Enjoy!
