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