Fruit Scones

Serves: 6
Time to prepare: 15 mins
Time to cook: 10 mins
Dietary requirements: Dairy-free, Egg-free, Vegan


  • 225g/scant 8oz self-raising flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 50g/1¾oz vegan margarine or butter
  • 50g/1¾oz raisins
  • 25g/generous ¾oz caster sugar
  • 120ml plant milk


  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C/425°F/gas mark 7.
  2. Add the flour to a mixing bowl with the salt.
  3. Rub the margarine into the flour.
  4. Add the raisins and sugar and mix together.
  5. Add the milk and mix to a soft dough. If the mix is too wet add a little flour, or if too dry add a little more plant milk.
  6. Roll out onto a floured surface to approximately 2 cm thick. Cut into rounds and place on a greased baking tray.
  7. Bake for 10–12 minutes until risen and golden brown.
  8. Serve with soya or coconut cream and jam.

CHEF’S TIP: Try making savoury scones by leaving out the sugar and raisins. Add dried herbs and grated vegan cheese instead.

I find if I leave pastry a bit thicker the rise is better.  Now need to find a gluten free way of baking scones.
