Coconut Scones


There are many things I love here in Nairobi that I cannot get anywhere else. One of the many…Tusky’s Coconut Scones. My friend got me hooked on these things in the very beginning when I arrived and since then its always a treat to hop on a bus bound for home with my yogurt and 30 shilling scone to sit back and enjoy. But then I got to thinking that I should try to recreate these amazing things at home. So here is the recipe I used and they turned out pretty good!

  • 6 TBSP Butter
  • 1/2 cup coconut
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Mix dry ingredients together. Next add the butter and mix it with a fork.
  3. Add coconut.
  4. Add the milk, mixing well and divide dough into 2. Pat each piece of dough into a circle and then press to be 3/4 inch thick. Use a knife to divide circle into six parts so that you have little triangle scones. Repeat this to the other circle of dough.
  5. If you have some remaining coconut you can mix some with a little sugar and then press your triangle scones into the coconut mixture before placing on a greased cookie sheet.
  6. Bake 15 minutes, until golden brown.
