Vegan Scones

Vegan Scones

These scones are just as delicious as traditional scones, but they’re completely vegan! You get the same flaky, buttery goodness without the dairy. Whether you’re hosting a brunch, preparing a teatime treat or just want something special for breakfast, these vegan scones are a great choice.


  • 350g self-raising flour, plus extra for dusting
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 tbsp caster sugar
  • 95g vegan vegetable spread
  • 150ml soy milk, plus extra for icing
  • jam, to serve
  • vegan cream alternative, such as oat-based crème fraîche, to serve

Method of preparation:

Preheat the oven to 220°C (fan 200°C) mark 7.

In a large bowl, mix together the self-raising flour, salt, baking powder and caster sugar. Add the vegan vegetable spread and work it into the flour with your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.

Make a well in the centre of the mixture and pour in the soy milk. Mix quickly and lightly to form a soft dough.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead briefly to remove any cracks. Roll the dough out to 2cm (¾in) thick. Using a round cutter, cut out scones and place on a baking tray.

Brush the tops of the scones with a little extra soy milk and bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until risen and golden.

Allow the scones to cool slightly on a wire rack. Serve warm with jam and a dollop of vegan cream alternative.
