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):
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
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!
