The taste of an English summer! Vegan sultana scones are by far my favourite recipe to throw together quickly and easily at home. We love them on woodland picnics, summer garden parties and on lazy Sunday afternoons in June.
Scones are an excellent option for impressing guests with very little hassle. I always keep a good local jam in the cupboard, along with some self raising flour, some sultanas and oat milk.

About the Ingredients
When it comes to choosing ingredients for our Vegan Sultana Scones, we like to choose the items with the lowest carbon footprint and the least packaging waste.
Essex is an excellent location for locally made and sourced jams. Strawberry jam, raspberry jam, cherry jam, blackberry jam, blueberry jam … there’s endless choices available. We prefer these Vegan Sultana Scones in perhaps the most traditional way; with dollops of strawberry jam!
In England, it’s easy to grow strawberries and raspberries throughout the summer months in pots. In late summer, it’s also possible to forage for local blackberries, wild strawberries, pears, apples, plums and more. Making homemade jam is quick and easy and growing your own fruit at home is the cheapest way to do it.

If growing fruit and making your own jam seems a bit much to take on, Essex is an ideal location to source excellent quality jams made by local people. We love Springlands Raspberry jam and Wilkin and Sons Strawberry jam.
We’d love to hear what fruits you like to grow!
Leave us a comment at the bottom of this page telling us what’s in your garden or whether or not you intend to make your own jam from them.
There are heaps of plant based milks to choose from so don’t feel limited. If you would like your Vegan Sultana Scones to be sweet, try coconut milk. If you prefer a nuttier taste, you could opt for almond milk. When it comes to our vegan baking recipes, we use oat milk.
We love oat milk because its flavour is super versatile; not too sweet, not too nutty. More importantly, it also has the lowest carbon footprint of all the plant based milks.
