Ingredients

  • 320 g self raising flour
  • 2 oranges
  • 5 g baking powder
  • 70 g vegan butter
  • 120 g caster sugar
  • 20 g poppy seeds
  • 200 g soy milk

Instructions

  1. Pre heat your oven to 180oC and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
  2. Set the tray aside, grab a mixing bowl and zest the two oranges into the bowl leaving the oranges to use later. Add the baking powder, poppy seeds, sugar and mix together with your fingers.

  3. Add the self-raising flour to the bowl and evenly mix together. Put a 1litre jug onto your scales with a sieve over the top and zero them with both the jug and sieve on.

  4. Juice your oranges into the jug through the sieve and add soy milk so the liquid measures out to 140g.

  5. Add the vegan butter and orange/soy liquid to the bowl and work the dough together with your hands until even.

  6. Throw some flour onto a work surface and add the scone dough, pressing down so the dough is roughly 2cm thick. Using a 7cm cutter, shape your scones and put onto your baking tray.

  7. Cook for 15 - 20 minutes turning halfway until the tops are golden in colour.
