Easy to Make Dairy Free Scones

If there's one thing I love making it's scones - more often than not, all the ingredients are in your cupboard already, they take no time at all and they're delicious sweet or savoury! I make all my bakes in my Thermomix so I use a mixture of already programmed Thermomix recipes as well as my own favourites and adapt them to use in the machine. I also make everything dairy-free due to our sons dairy allergy which means there's been a lot of trial and error over the years. 

This particular scone recipe is based on a BBC Good Food recipe by Jane Hornby but I've tweaked the ingredient amounts and made it dairy-free so we can all enjoy them together at home.

What you'll need (makes 8):
400g self-raising flour
1tsp baking powder
90g Vitalite butter
3tbsp caster sugar
185ml oat milk
1tsp vanilla extract

Egg to glaze before baking
Jam and clotted cream to serve

  • Heat oven to 220c/Gas 7 and line trays with baking paper. Place self-raising flour into a large bowl followed by a pinch of salt and your baking powder then mix. If using a Thermomix do the same and mix for 20sec on speed 1.5
  • Add butter and rub in with fingers until mixture resembles crumbs then add the caster sugar. For Thermomix add butter and caster sugar then mix for 30sec on speed 1.5
  • Warm oat milk in the microwave until warm and add vanilla extract
  • Take oat milk and combine with mixture quickly with a knife. In Thermomix add oat milk then mix for 30sec on speed 2
  • Cover worktop in flour then empty dough, work the dough a few times until smooth then take a rolling pin and roll out to 4cm before taking your cutter to cut out your scones
  • Brush top with beaten egg then place on a baking tray - bake for 12/15 minutes until golden
  • Once baked, leave to cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes 

As you can see, the recipe is super easy to create and pretty much fail-safe meaning you are left with deliciously perfect dairy-free scones every time.

  13. Hi Alice. Those scones look delicious. At the risk of stirring-up trouble, shouldn't the cream be on top of the jam? ;)
