Preheat the oven to 200°C and line a baking tray with a silicone liner or a light dusting of flour.
Weigh the flour into a mixing bowl and give it a little whisk (or you can sieve it!)
Next add the dairy free margarine to the flour mixture and rub together with your fingertips until you have a breadcrumb like mixture. I find the best scones are made with coarser breadcrumb sized pieces than fine ones.
Next add the sugar, blackberries and white chocolate chips before gently stirring. Coating the blackberries completely will help keep your dough white rather than pink!
In a separate jug measure out the dairy free milk and add to the dry ingredients
Now for the messy bit – either use a spoon or flour your hands and get them in there – its up to you! Gently stir together all the ingredients until a soft dough is formed. Turn out onto a floured board and gently knead in more flour if its very sticky.
Roll or squash the dough out until about 4 inches think before and using a floured straight sided cutter to cut out your scones. If you have to re-roll, do it gently or you will end up with slightly rubbery, dense scones... and that is just not nice!
Spread out on a floured baking tray and bake for around 30mins.
LEAVE THEM TO COOL SLIGHTLY BEFORE EATING!! The fruit will be very very hot! :)
*That includes the cost of buying fresh blackberries while they are in season. If you grow your own, forage some or use frozen the scones work out even cheaper!** check the scones from about 25mins onwards as cooking time will vary with thickness of scones.
