45. Tattie scones – vegan style!

It was mine and the hubby’s 1 year wedding anniversary the other weekend and we went to Dundee to celebrate.

The hotel did a fabulous job of catering for me, however I couldn’t help but feeling a little sad that I couldn’t have the tatty scones with my breakfast as they’re normally made with butter.

Sooooo, I whipped up a batch of vegan friendly ones once I got back home. And it would be rude of me not to share the tastiness!

(For those of you who are unfamiliar with the tattie scone, they are a Scottish delicacy and very delicious: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Potato_scone).

 

Tattie scone recipe (makes 8 triangles):

Ingredients:

300 g potatoes (the more floury the variety the better)

25 g vegan friendly marg plus extra for frying (I used vitalite)

75 g white flour

Salt and pepper to taste

 

Method:

Boil the potatoes in the skins until soft all the way through.

Drain and leave until cook enough to handle. Peel the skins (the rats enjoyed these!)

Mash in a bowl with the marg. Add salt and pepper to taste.

When smooth stir in the flour until a dough is formed (you might need to use your hands towards the end).

Roll the dough out until about half a centimeter thick. If you’re cooking to impress you can neaten things up by placing a plate on top of the dough and cutting around the perimeter.

Add some marg to a frying pan and when melted and bubbling caaaaaaarefully add the raw tattie scone.

Fry both sides until golden brown.

Cut into triangles and serve with lots more marg, or as a side or even with jam if you fancy it.

Easy peasey and ridiculously delish!
