YES, it IS possible to enjoy afternoon tea as a vegan! Whilst searching Pintrest for vegan treats I could make over the weekend I came across a recipe for scones, I had never thought about making vegan scones but turns out they are super easy and simple to make!
The recipe is by Wallflower Kitchen and I nearly followed it exactly, the one thing I had to change was adding baking powder because I didn’t have any self rising flower. I also halved the recipe as I didn’t want to make enough for 15 people, being only 2 of us. (Although I probably could have eaten enough for 15). Halving the recipe still gave me 12 scones but next time I’ll probably make them a thicker as some came out a little small for my liking.
The clotted cream also came out a dream, Wallflower Kitchen has the clotted cream recipe along with the scones and honestly I don’t think you’d ever turn around a tell me this cream wasn’t vegan. It’s made from coconut cream (the thick lump in your can of coconut milk), butter and sugar. I also added a little bit of vanilla essence because I don’t tend to like the taste of coconut but honestly I don’t think you’d know it was coconut cream because I couldn’t taste anything but heaven!
All in all it probably took me less than half an hour to make these beauties and they stayed good for days afterwards, now to master the rest of afternoon tea!
Stay fancy x
