Vegan Fruit Scones

This recipe is adapted almost directly from the Engine Shed Recipe Book, a wonderful set of recipes probably only available in Edinburgh.

Ingredients

  • 200g plain wholemeal flour
  • 200g plain white flour
  • 2 tsp sodium bicarbonate
  • 2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 100g vegan margarine
  • 100g sultanas
  • 1 banana, chopped
  • 1 apple, chopped
  • 1 tsp mixed spice
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 225ml soya milk

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas mark 6.
  2. Put flour, sodium bicarbonate and cream of tartar in a bowl and rub in margarine until mixture is like fine crumbs.
  3. Add sultanas, mixed spice, cinnamon and chopped fruit and mix well.
  4. Using a blunt knife, stir in soya milk until mixture comes together. You should find it makes quite a wet dough, but this makes wonderfully moist scones.
  5. Flatten the dough into a round (5mm thick) on a floured surface and cut out your preferred size of scone shapes.
  6. Put them on a lightly floured baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes.
