Mixed Berry Scones

A twist on the classic scone recipe, serve these berry bakes warm with a slather of butter and dollop of jam or, if you want an extra treat, Nutella.

Yield

Makes 15

Total Time

45 Minutes

Ingredients

500g of plain flour, plus extra for dusting
2 tbsp of caster sugar
2 tbsp of baking powder
100g of vegan butter or margarine
320ml of plant-based milk
150g of berries e.g. raspberries, blueberries, blackberries
For the glaze
2 tbsp of plant-based milk
Extra sugar
To serve
50g of melted white chocolate
Yoghurt and jam

Method

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 200Fan/220°C and line 2 baking trays with parchment paper.

Step 2

Sift the plain flour into a large mixing bowl and stir in the sugar and baking powder. Add in the butter and use a knife to cut it into the flour into small pieces. Rub with your hands until it resembles a fine crumble.

Step 3

Gradually pour in the milk and stir with a spoon and then bring together with your hands. Carefully fold in the berries.

Step 4

Place the dough onto a floured work surface and shape into a large round, about 2cm thick. Use a cutter (about 6cm diameter) to carefully cut out the scones and transfer to the lined baking tray. Bring the leftover dough pieces together into a ball, flatten and continue to cut out scones.

Step 5

Brush the top of the scones with the milk (be careful to not cover the sides with it) and sprinkle over some sugar.

Step 6

Bake the scones for 12-15 minutes until golden and risen. Allow to cool on a wire rack and drizzle with the white chocolate. Serve with yoghurt and jam.
