Strawberry Scones

Early summer in England is all about the strawberries and what goes better with strawberries than scones? Here’s a simple variation on a scone recipe. Adding strawberries gives the scones a real summery vibe, and makes me think of sitting on immaculate English lawns. They’re a big craggy and rustic – as scones should be, in my opinion – but packed full of flavour! Anyone for tennis?

Serve with whipped dairy-free cream and strawberry jam for the fully authentic experience.

– With your fingertips, gently rub in the dairy-free spread until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs.

– Cut out with a 6cm cookie cutter (or whatever size you choose)

– Place on an oiled and floured baking sheet.
