Vegan Currant Scones Recipe

Who doesn't love scones? The answer is no one! Scones are delicious with butter and/or jam and a cuppa tea. A perfect afternoon pick me up! This is a very versatile recipe and you can substitute the currants for any dried fruit. You could even try making savoury ones by omitting the sugar and adding herbs and olives etc.
I've found thinly sliced apples, a few walnuts and a pinch of cinnamon is especially inviting.

450g plain flour
2tsp baking powder
90g sunflower oil
3 tbsp sugar
200g currants
300ml rice milk

  1. Mix the flour, baking powder and oil together until it resembles breadrumbs.
  2. Add the sugar, rice milk and currants then bring the dough together, be careful not to over-knead the mix as it can make the scones hard!
  3. Roll into two 2inch circles and cut into triangles, as you would a pizza
  4. Bake at 180 for about 15 minutes until risen and golden.
Hope you enjoy the recipe!
