Mighty Method

Makes 6-9 scones (depending how big you cut them!) 
  1. Pre-heat oven to 200°C
  2. Mix flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl
  3. Pour the m.lk into a jug and warm in the microwave for 20-30 secs
  4. Add the lemon juice to the warm m.lk, stir and set aside. The liquid will curdle, this is meant to happen!
  5. Rub the butter into flour mixture with your fingers until it resembles a crumble mixture
  6. Make a well in the flour mixture and pour in the curdled m.lk
  7. Gradually bring in the flour to the wet mixture in the centre using a knife
  8. Once the mixture resembles a loose dough, dust flour on a clean surface and gently fold the dough in on itself, being careful not to knead
  9. The dough should be well-combined but does not have to be smooth. Gently pat the dough to flatten to about 3-4cm thick
  10. If you have a cutter, cut out your scones from the dough. If you don’t, you can use a glass/cup either on its own or using a knife to cut out the shape round the glass edge
  11. Rework the dough into a flat shape of the same thickness and keep cutting scones out until all the dough is used
  12. Dust the scones with a little extra flour around the edges and place on a lined baking tray
  13. Optional – brush some mighty m.lk over the tops of the scone to give them a glazed effect (replaces an egg glaze)
  14. Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes, depending on how big you cut the scones – I made 9 and baked for 10 mins
  15. Leave to (mostly) cool and serve warm with vegan cream or butter and lots of jam!
