Nutrition Info Per Serving
1 cup almond milk, unsweetened
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted (plus more for your work surface)
1 tbsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
¼ cup + 2 tbsp vegan butter, cold
½ cup fresh blueberries
¼ cup powdered cane sugar
1 tbsp non-dairy milk (e.g. almond milk) or water
- Preheat your oven to 450 degrees F.
- In a small bowl, whisk lemon juice and almond milk until combined. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, whisk together all the dry ingredients.
- Cut ¼ cup of your cold butter into small cubes and add it to your dry ingredients. With your hands or with a pastry cutter, combine the butter with the flour and mix until it is mostly combined. The butter will not completely combine, and its normal to have small chunks. Work quickly so the butter does not melt.
- Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the almond milk. Combine the mixture with your hands and work it into a dough ball. It will be sticky. If you find it is too sticky, you can add extra flour, a little bit at a time.
- Dust a generous amount of flour onto your counter surface and knead the dough gently. It does not need to be overworked, just gently kneaded a few times until the dough feels light and fluffy and not sticky.
- Flatten the dough gently into a disk shape. Place your fresh blueberries onto the center of the dough and fold the dough inwards to make a ball. Knead the dough very gently so as not to crush the blueberries.
- Make the dough ball into a loaf-type, rectangular shape. Using a large sharp knife or a pastry cutter, cut the dough into 8 equal biscuits.
- Melt the remaining 2 tbsp butter in a pan. Gently brush each biscuit with melted butter.
- Bake for 10 minutes, or until golden. Allow them to cool.
- Make your sugar glaze by whisking powdered sugar with non-dairy milk or water. Drizzle them on the biscuits. You can also cut the biscuits in half and spread them with jam or vegan butter.
