Glazed Lemon Scones
My obsession with lemon flavoured desserts continues, and now it's time for my favourite kind of baked good to make: scones! These lemon scones are sweet, buttery and tangy, and like all scones they are super quick and fun to make. I hope you give these a go!
Scones: 350g all purpose flour
110g vegan butter + 1tbsp for brushing
2 tbsp ground flax meal + 6 tbsp water
2 tsp baking powder
85g granulated sugar
½ tsp kosher salt (or 1/4tsp fine table salt)
100g soy milk
30g lemon juice
The zest of 1 lemon
Glace: 70g powdered sugar
15g lemon juice (or enough to reach your desired texture)
Mix flax meal with water and set aside.
Combine flour, sugar, salt, lemon zest and baking powder in a bowl.
Add chunks of cold vegan butter and use your fingers to pinch the lumps of butter until there are no chunks larger than the size of a pea, making sure not to melt them. Combine soy milk, lemon juice and the flax "egg". Whisk to combine and pour into your dry mix. Mix until roughly incorporated before turning the dough onto a clean surface and kneading until just combined but still flaky and “rough” looking. Pat into a circular disc and cut into 8 equal “slices”. Place on a tray lined with parchment paper. Melt down 1tbsp vegan butter and brush over the top of the scones. You can also sprinkle on a little sugar at this point if you wish. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until they start to brown in the middle of the oven at 200C. Leave to cool. Make the glaze by combining lemon juice and powdered sugar until you have a runny texture. Drizzle on top of the scones and enjoy!
