These Easy Fluffy Vegan Scones are fluffy, sweet, satisfying, and are ideally topped with jam and vegan whipped cream!
Some of the most popular scone recipes I found whilst researching don’t contain eggs in any case, and butter and milk are so easy to replace with excellent vegan alternatives that these taste identical to the very finest homemade scones.
I couldn’t find my regular cutter for scones, so I used a smaller cutter, which made 12 small scones instead of the 6-8 large scones I’d usually make out of the scone dough. But any size and shape will do 🙂
What’s the secret to light, fluffy scones?
- Cold butter ideally straight out of the fridge.
- When you’re rubbing the butter/spread into the flour, don’t overdo it, just rub the butter in until it’s just combined.
- Bring it together with your hands but don’t overwork the dough. The less you handle it the better.
- Roll it out thickly, 2-3 cm thick.
- When you cut it, be careful not to twist the cutter as you lift it out of the scone dough or your scones will bake squint, instead of straight up
Which shape should a scone be?
Traditionally, the scones in the UK are round, the scones in USA are triangle shapes. Always cut scones with a round cutter. It can be plain or fluted but has to be a circle cutter.
If you want triangle scones, bake one large bannock and cut into triangles. Baked triangles of scones are almost always going to be an uneven bake, quite hard at the tip and lighter at the base, Round is definitely the best option for a light bake all the way through. But that’s just my opinion. Don’t want to offend anyone.
Calories in Scones:
I’ve worked out the calories per scone.
6 large scones = 258 calories each
8 fairly large scones = 193 calories each
10 medium scones = 155 calories each
12 small scones = 123 calories each
Adding dairy-free spread and jam will, of course, add calories.
