Dairy Free Scones in the Little Helper FunPod
Dairy Free Scones
I grew up making scones with my Grandmother on our family farm. She would let my brother and I help her in the kitchen. It was an old-fashioned farm kitchen that had flour-bin cupboards full of flour. I use to love reaching into the deep bins and pull out a cup of flour for our recipes.
I remember feeling so proud sifting the flour and cracking an egg for the first time. My brother and I were allowed to cut-out the scones with the cookie-cutter, and then have enough dough to make our very own creation. Sometimes I would make a cat shaped scone and my brother a chook. We would wait eagerly by the oven while they baked. These memories really created my love for cooking, especially home-made quality farm cooking.
Afterwards we would sit up with miniature cups of tea and eat our delicious creations for afternoon tea with jam and cream. Mmmm. Hope you enjoy them!
Kids cooking level ⭐️ ⭐️ Kids will need some help as there is a hot oven required.
Makes 10 big scones or 20 little ones
Oven Temperature 200c
3 and 3/4 cups of self-raising flour
50g castor sugar
240mls unsweetened almond milk (or normal milk)
85g Nuttelex margarine (can use normal if not dairy free)
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar.
First double sift your flour into a large bowl, (it’s important to double-sift as creates very fluffy scones, this means twice). Next place nuttelex into the mixture and use fingertips to slowly crumb together. (Kids will love this) it should look like breadcrumbs. Next add sugar, then slowly add the almond milk add apple cider vinegar.
Mix with a wooden spoon lightly as not to remove the air from the dough. Otherwise using a mix-master only place on slow for 1 minute until all combined then remove onto a floured workbench.
Slowly and lightly move the dough altogether and smooth out with a rolling pin. Next use your scone cutters and cut out your scones and place them onto a lined baking tray. Place into the oven for 10 minutes and should be lovely and slightly golden.
Place onto a cooling rack and allow to cool, then enjoy with jam and cream or coconut yoghurt.
