Vegan Fruit homemade Scones dairy-free Cream tea

These Scones are so light, delicious, they look and taste really impressive yet are so easy to make!! In fact the trick to good scones is not working the pastry a lot at all just roll it & cut out the shapes.

I made them for a family birthday party in the garden earlier in the summer and everyone enjoyed them vegan or not!

So tasty and you wouldn’t believe they’re vegan they are such a treat!

Ingredients (8-10 scones)

• 350g self-raising flour , extra for dusting

• ¼ tsp salt

• 1 tsp baking powder

• 3 tbsp caster sugar

• 95g vegan vegetable spread

• 100g sultana’s (optional)

• 150ml non – dairy milk , plus extra to glaze

• jam , to serve

• vegan cream alternative, e.g. oat-based crème fraîche, or Alpro Double cream (whipped) to serve

Instructions

    • Mix the flour, salt, baking powder and sugar in a bowl. Rub in the vegetable spread until you have fine breadcrumbs.

    • Slowly stir the milk into the flour mixture until you have a smooth dough. 

    • dust your surface lightly with flour and gently roll out the scone dough until 2cm thick.

    • Transfer onto a baking tray lined with parchment and put it in the fridge for 30 mins to firm up.

    • Remove the dough from the fridge and using a round cutter (you can improvise with a jam jar lid if you don’t have a cutter, cut out the scones. (When you cut the scones out, press the cutter straight down, don’t twist it. Flour the cutter first to make it easier to remove the scones.)

    • Put them, top side down, onto another baking sheet lined with paper, leaving a 2cm gap between each one. This gives the scones an even top.

    • Brush with the extra milk, making sure that it doesn’t drip onto the sides (otherwise they will rise unevenly)

    • Put the scones in the freezer for 15 mins. Heat the oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7
    Remove from the freezer and bake for 15-20 mins until golden brown. Serve with jam and vegan cream, if you like.
