Preparation

  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Mix plain flour, baking powder, salt, and caster sugar together in a large bowl, then rub the butter in with your fingertips until it resembles breadcrumbs. Stir through dried cranberries.
  2. Add milk to a jug and stir in the vanilla. Add a little at a time to the bowl, bringing the mixture together until it forms a firm dough, taking care not to overmix.
  3. Turn the dough onto a floured surface and pat into a circle about 3/4 of an inch thick. Cut scones with a 5cm cutter or glass. Bake for 12-15 mins until golden.
  4. To prepare the whipped coconut cream, open the tin of coconut milk and scoop out the fat from the top of the can. Mix in a small bowl with 2 tbsp of icing sugar using a fork. Layer scones with dollops of strawberry jam and coconut cream.
