Scones served with homemade strawberry jam

Well, Wimbledon is over and Andy didn’t win. A British win would have been nice, but it’s no real surprise…. even to a non-tennis fan like me, it was obvious that Roger Federer would be hard to beat in the form he has been in this week.

Nonetheless, these scones provide the perfect english tea time treat, especially when topped with Speedy Soft Set Strawberry JamThis vegan recipe ticks all the boxes – light, only slightly sweet and the perfect vehicle for eating sticky jam.
