Scones

There’s something timeless about the simple pleasure of English scones, served warm with a dollop of jam and a generous spread of clotted cream. In this vegan version, we capture all the classic charm of traditional scones without any animal products, proving that you can enjoy this quintessential British treat while adhering to a plant-based diet.

Start with the basics: flour, a bit of sugar, and vegan butter. It’s crucial to handle the vegan butter correctly—keep it cold and work it into the flour just until you get a breadcrumb-like texture. This technique ensures your scones have that lovely, light crumb that’s so essential.

For raising agents, I use a combination of baking powder and a little baking soda, which helps the scones rise beautifully and achieve that perfect peak. Add a touch of plant-based milk to bring the dough together; you might find that a splash more is necessary to reach the ideal consistency.

Once your dough is ready, pat it into a round shape and cut out your scones. You can choose the size based on whether you like them cute and small or as substantial wedges. Bake them until they’re golden and risen, then let them cool slightly on a wire rack.

Serve these delightful scones warm with your favorite vegan jam and a spoonful of vegan clotted cream or butter. They make for a wonderful afternoon treat, paired with a cup of tea, allowing you to partake in a lovely British tradition right from the comfort of your own home.

This recipe is not just about making scones; it’s about creating moments of joy and indulgence with every batch. Whether it’s a lazy Sunday morning or a special gathering, these vegan scones promise to bring a touch of sweetness to your day.
