• 250ml Unsweetened plain almond milk
• 15ml Fresh lemon juice
• 500ml Unbleached all-purpose flour
• 15ml Baking powder
• 2.5ml Baking soda
• 4ml Sea salt
• 60ml Non-dairy, unsalted butter


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C, and add lemon juice to almond milk to make “vegan buttermilk.” Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together dry ingredients.
  3. Add cold butter and use fingers or a pastry cutter to combine the two until only small pieces
    remain and it looks like sand. Work quickly so the butter doesn’t get too warm.
  4.  Make a well in the dry ingredients and, using a wooden spoon, stir gently while pouring in the
    almond milk mixture (vegan buttermilk) (60 ml) at a time. You may not need all of it.
    Stop when it resembles a slightly tacky but moldable dough, stirring until just combined.
  5. Turn onto a lightly floured surface, dust the top with a bit of flour and then very gently turn the
    dough over on itself 5-6 times – hardly kneading. Add more flour as needed to prevent sticking.
  6. Form into a 1-inch thick disc, handling as little as possible.
  7. Use a 1-inch thick dough cutter or a similar-shape object with sharp edges (such as a cocktail
    shaker) and push straight down through the dough, then slightly twist. Repeat and place
    biscuits on a baking sheet in two rows, making sure they just touch – this will help them rise
    uniformly. Gently reform the dough and cut out one or two more biscuits – you should have 7-8
    (as original recipe is written).
  8. Next brush the tops with a bit more of melted non-dairy butter and gently press a small divot
    in the center using two fingers. This will also help them rise evenly, so the middle won’t form a
  9. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until fluffy and slightly golden brown. Serve immediately.
    Let remaining scones cool completely before storing them in an airtight container or bag
