SPELT SCONES - sugar free!

I am off bread during the week in an effort to feel less bleh. My daughter wanted a scone today, so rather than buy tempting shop ones, I decided to bake spelt scones. Because they have strawberry soya yogurt in them, these are really sweet and tasty.

The lovely cloth is a bread cloth given to me by writer Valerie Trueblood and hand woven by her friend. It is my newest treasure possession and it got its first use with these scones.


150 g wholemeal spelt flour
50 g porridge oats
2 tbsp olive oil
1 large egg beaten
4 tbsp yogurt (any flavour or plain)
1 heaped tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt


Preheat the oven to 200C

Preheat baking tray in oven and sprinkle with flour when ready to use

In a bowl mix all the dry ingredients together and make a well in the middle

Mix the yogurt, oil and egg in a jug, then mix into flour mixture until it forms a dough

Turn out onto a floured surface and shape into a round about 2 inches thick

Cut out scones with a small pastry cutter – about 8 depending on size of cutter

Place on a floured baking tray and bake in the middle of the oven for approx. 20 minutes

Cool on a wire rack


I've decided to change the name of this blog because the whole vegan thing is too restrictive for me. I am not vegan (my husband is) and sticking to vegan food only as a blogger means I blog little. I do intend to still post vegan recipes though.

So welcome to The Hungry Veggie, I hope I can manage to blog here more now that I can use eggs :)
