Nothing is as welcoming as a batch of freshly made scones served with jam.

Makes nine scones.


  • 2 cups of flour
  • 4 teaspoons of baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • 2/3 cup of chopped dates
  • 3/4 cup of soy milk
  • 1/4 cup of canola oil
  • Jam and soy cream to serve


Sift the dry ingredients into a mixing bowl. Add the chopped dates.

Gently mix in the soy milk and oil until just combined.

Turn out onto a floured bench and fold together with your hands a few times.

Roll the dough out into a half inch thick square. Cut into nine equal squares. Gently push the edges in to make each scone circular and place on a baking tray.

Brush the tops with a little milk. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes in a hot oven (200 C/390 F) until the scones are a little browned on top.
