We are now right in the height of British summer, and with more warm weather set for August, it is now the perfect time to start venturing out in nature and planning activities with friends outside.
The origins of a picnic come from France, after the public were allowed access to the royal parks following the French revolution. Since then, they have become a staple of French culture. Picnics are also incredibly popular in the UK, the US, and Italy, and the average person goes on a picnic three times a year!
We know that sandwiches, cakes, fruit, and other snacks are essential- and you can read our blog about ideal picnics here. Below, we have a scone recipe to ‘veganise’ your traditional picnic, and for you to try out your baking skills!
Vegan Matcha scone recipe! (serves 3)
- 175g self-raising flour
- ½ tsp of baking powder
- 2 tsp of caster sugar
- 45g vegan butter
- 90 ml Matcha Oat Milk Green Tea Latte
- Vegan cream and jam for topping!
How to make:
Step 1- Put some greaseproof paper on a baking tray and gather your ingredients
Step 2- Measure out 175g of self-raising flour, ½ a teaspoon of baking powder, 2 teaspoons of caster sugar, a sprinkle of salt and 45g of vegan butter
Step 3- Rub this mixture together with your fingers, so that it looks like a crumble. Then add 90ml of HumaniTea’s Matcha Oat Milk Green Tea Latte to the mix- slowly stirring it in.
Step 4- Sprinkle some flour on the work surface, and take the mixture out of the bowl onto the flour. Roll with a rolling pin until the dough is thick, and use a shape cutter to make circles from the dough.
Step 5- Put the dough on the baking tray, brush the top of the raw scones with some more of the Matcha Tea Latte, and leave in the fridge to firm up for around 30-40 minutes.
Step 6- Heat the oven at 200c and take the dough out of the fridge. Place in the oven for 15-20 minutes and leave to cool down. Add jam and vegan cream when it is ready to eat!
If you want to make this recipe without the Matcha Tea latte, then try making scones with our Earl Grey Oat Milk Classic Tea Latte! It is the exact same ingredients and method, but swapping one latte for another.
When we make our scones with Earl Grey, we also add in a handful of dried cranberries for some extra flavour, but you can add anything you like, sultanas, raisins, or chocolate chips! You can view our latest Tik Tok of our scone recipe here.
