Vegan mixed berry scones


Makes 10-12 large scones

450g self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder

Pinch of salt
80g vegan butter, grated

3 tbsp maple syrup

300ml dairy-free yoghurt

100g frozen mixed berries

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 ̊C/160 ̊C fan/gas mark 4.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and salt. Use your fingers to rub in the grated butter until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  3. Mix the maple syrup into the yoghurt, then add to the flour mixture. Use a fork to mix until just combined. Stir in the mixed berries without over-working the mixture.
  4. Turn it out onto a floured surface and knead just enough to shape the dough into a circle about 4cm thick.
  5. Using a pastry cutter, cut the dough into round scones. Gather up the remaining dough into another circle and cut out more round scones until you’ve used up all the dough.
  6. Place the scones onto an ungreased baking tray. Brush the tops with some plant-based milk and sprinkle on some sugar.
  7. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown on top. Allow to cool on a wire rack.
